An article dedicated to this event was published in the ANS newsletter. Written by the BNS President Vincent Massaut, and the BNS Young Generation President Fabio Nouchy.
In 1970, a bit more than 50 years ago, the then ANS-president Professor Palladino, gave an Evening Lecture in Brussels to the newly formed Belgian local section of the American Nuclear Society. It was one of the first national chapters formed outside of the United States. The latter isn’t very surprising, as Belgium had an already well-developed nuclear industry at that time, dating back to the strong “nuclear” ties between the countries.
