Timely development of the legal, regulatory and support infrastructure is as important as the construction of the nuclear power plant itself, concluded delegates at an IAEA workshop. http://ow.ly/Y9OVQ

Germanium was discovered #OnThisDay 130 years ago!

Clemens Winkler came upon this chemical element in 1886 as he was analysing the composition of argyrodite, a rare mineral found at a silver mine in Germany. He named his new discovery after the Latin word ‘Germania’, the namesake of Germany. Fifteen years before, Dimitri Mendeleyev had predicted its existence based on the gap between silicon and tin, which he noted in his newly created Periodic Table of Elements.

Being highly sensitive to ionizing radiation like gamma rays and X-rays, germanium plays an important role here at the #IAEA. One of the tools our safeguards inspectors use to verify enrichment levels of uranium is a detector with germanium crystals, which, when cooled to -140 degrees Celsius, can detect gamma radiation released from uranium. This is one part of how the IAEA works to assure the peaceful uses of #nuclear material.

Today is #WorldCancerDay‬ — a day to recognize how ‪#WeCanICan‬ help reduce the burden of this life-threatening disease.

We can improve access to cancer care for millions of people worldwide. Here at the IAEA, we collaborate with our partners to train doctors and provide equipment essential to cancer management. Our experts work with scientists on research and development to help find new ways to tackle this disease and the burden it brings.
Cancer survival should not be left to chance. Support expanded access to cancer care. Everywhere. ‪#CancerCare4All http://ow.ly/XXtKf
4 February 2015. World Cancer Day: Montenegro Improves Early Breast Cancer Detection. Breast cancer is by far the most frequent cancer among women, causing hundreds of thousands of deaths every year. Early diagnosis is key to effective treatment, and can prevent deaths in many cases.

The world of sea turtles is full of mystery, but in efforts to protect them from extinction, scientists are turning to nuclear fallout, an unlikely source to help uncover the clues about their habits and lives.

Read on in this The New York Times​ piece to find out more.
Researchers are relying on radiocarbon from bomb tests decades ago to learn more about endangered hawksbill turtles in the Hawaiian Islands.

#OnThisDay is Abdus Salam’s birthday! He was among the most influential physicists of the 20th century and the first Pakistani to win a +Nobel Prize in sciences for his work on the electroweak theory.

By the young age of 25, Salam had already earned a Master’s degree in mathematics (1941) with the highest honours at Government College in what is now Punjab, Pakistan, and a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics and physics (1949) and PhD in theoretical physics (1951) from the University of Cambridge. At this point in his life, he was already internationally renowned for his work in quantum electrodynamics.

In the late 1960s, Salam devised the electroweak theory on unifying two of the four known forces of nature: electromagnetic force and weak nuclear force. He hypothesized that weak force was transmitted by carrier particles — charged W and neutral Z bosons. Experiments conducted in the 70s substantiated his theory, marking his work as an important contribution to Einstein's dream of unified forces and subsequently earning Salam — along with two others who had reached similar conclusions — the Noble prize in Physics in 1979. Later in 1983, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, +CERN, further verified the existence of these carrier particles and their predicted masses. 

Salam’s legacy lives on through the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy, which he created in 1964 in collaboration with the #IAEA, +UNESCO, and the Government of Italy, among others. The ICTP aims to give scientists, particularly from developing countries, the chance to further their research and education in sciences — a mission Salam himself helped to financially support using his prize money from awards such as the Atoms for Peace medal and the Nobel Prize. For over 50 years, the #IAEA and the #ICTP have continued to collaborate in furthering the work of young scientists in areas such as plasma spectroscopy, nuclear knowledge and energy management, nuclear data and analytical applications, and fusion.

Today is Dmitri ‪#Mendeleev's birthday! He is best known for creating one of the most iconic emblems in all of ‪#modernscience‬: the periodic table of the elements.

Born in 1834 in Siberia, Russia, Dmitri Mendeleev overcame a challenging childhood to become both a teacher and an academic chemist in St. Petersburg, publishing 400 books and articles throughout his life.

In 1860, he was invited to Karlsruhe, Germany for the first ever international #chemistry conference, which highlighted the need to standardize chemistry and had a great influence on Mendeleev’s work. Determined to find a better way to classify elements, he formulated the periodic law, which states that many properties of elements tend to recur in a systematic manner with increasing atomic number. Although not immediately accepted, his work gained international attention when elements he predicted were discovered. His diagram, known as the periodic table of elements, is widely used today and is a cornerstone of modern chemistry.

The table has grown over time, but Mendeleev’s periodic law has held true. Last month, the world welcomed 4 new elements – Elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 – completing the 7th row of the table!

We followed Dr Dammi as she teaches students and treats patients at a nuclear medicine centre in #SriLanka. Despite being a small team, Dr Dammi and her staff of eight are helping hundreds of patients a year.

The perihelion: if you know some Greek, then you know it’s about getting up close to one of the largest and most powerful nuclear fusion reactors we know, the Sun.

Each year during the month of January, the Sun — a glowing ball of energy powered by nuclear reactions — is only about 147.1 million kilometres (91.4 million miles) away from the Earth and positioned in such a way that it is winter in the Earth’s northern hemisphere and summer in its southern hemisphere. With the Sun closer than usual, the Earth gets more energy than at any other time of the year, when it can be as far away as 152.1 million kilometres (94.5 million miles). Sunlight supports nearly all life on earth through photosynthesis and drives much of the climate and weather of the planet.

The Sun is also a source of inspiration for nuclear fusion research, which sets out to harness the same kind of thermonuclear processes as those on the Sun, to produce a nearly inexhaustible source of energy here on earth. As scientists have made significant progress toward getting nuclear fusion to work, there’s still a long way to go, and we’re lending a hand by contributing to and coordinating scientific and technical research.

So as you’re thinking about January coming to an end and the Sun circling away, read about how nuclear fusion works and what we’re doing to help bring the world closer to capturing its potential: https://goo.gl/Zfxzki
