Biomedical program leading to therapeutic trials

Description: Pions became available in the main research area at the blinton P. Anderson Meson Physics Facility at Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory on August 26, 1973. Several channels are now in operation. The biomedical channel immediately downstreann is to be activated early in January 1974, and the biomedical building is on schedule for completion in March 1974. The proton accelerator has been tested and does develop 800 MeV. When fully operative, the current will be one milliampere with a beam power of 800 kilowatts. Lists are presented of preclinical studies for pion radiotherapy and proposed clinical studies. (CH)

Radiation effects in the environment

Description: Although the Navajo possess substantial resource wealth-coal, gas, uranium, water-this potential wealth has been translated into limited permanent economic or political power. In fact, wealth or potential for wealth has often made the Navajo the victims of more powerful interests greedy for the assets under limited Navajo control. The primary focus for this education workshop on the radiation effects in the environment is to provide a forum where scientists from the nuclear science and technology community can share their knowledge toward the advancement and diffusion of nuclear science and technology issues for the Navajo public. The scientists will make an attempt to consider the following basic questions; what is science; what is mathematics; what is nuclear radiation? Seven papers are included in this report: Navajo view of radiation; Nuclear energy, national security and international stability; ABC`s of nuclear science; Nuclear medicine: 100 years in the making; Radon in the environment; Bicarbonate leaching of uranium; and Computational methods for subsurface flow and transport. The proceedings of this workshop will be used as a valuable reference materials in future workshops and K-14 classrooms in Navajo communities that need to improve basic understanding of nuclear science and technology issues. Results of the Begay-Stevens research has revealed the existence of strange and mysterious concepts in the Navajo Language of nature. With these research results Begay and Stevens prepared a lecture entitled The Physics of Laser Fusion in the Navajo language. This lecture has been delivered in numerous Navajo schools, and in universities and colleges in the US, Canada, and Alaska.
