Peyton Williams is a chemistry/pre-med major in college with top ranking in a class of 4,507 students in Sophomore year. In the summer between high school and college, he studied a book about the most advanced nuclear reactor in the United States and wrote a report, "Reactors of the Future: The Integral Fast Reactor." This technology was stopped in the United States and France for the time being, by anti-nuclear advocates and two U.S. Presidents who bend to their will. Russia is going full speed ahead with fast neutron reactors. See Peyton Williams' report on both websites: go-nuclear.org and efn-usa.org. The world needs excellent students like him in all endeavors.
Kelvin Kemm, nuclear physicist, is a dynamic leader for nuclear energy in South Africa and the African Continent. He is also a voice of science and reason in the United States.
Ted Rockwell is one of the most accomplished, respected and down to Earth pioneers in nuclear energy and an excellent writer. He had many interesting conversations with his colleagues, Congress, the media, and students. When signatures were collected for his memorial tribute for Go Nuclear in 2013, a nuclear engineering student in Jordan asked if he could sign. He had studied from the Reactor Shielding Manual that Ted Rockwell was the Editor of and was very thankful to Dr. Rockwell. This book has been standard curriculum for nuclear engineering students around the world since 1956.
