PPPL made lots of headlines during the spring and early summer of 2014, most recently with more than two dozen articles about a paper in Nature on a new technology to verify nuclear weapons developed by researchers at PPPL and Princeton University that appeared in Science and Wired, to name just two. There were several about PPPL’s Young Women’s Conference, including an editorial in The Star-Ledger; and articles about the first demonstration of the Remote Glow Discharge Experiment in local media and Smithsonian Magazine; photos in the Times of Trenton of a Girl Scout STEM Fair hosted by PPPL and many others.
A sampling of the many other websites and publications to run stories about the nuclear weapons verification technology are: Product Design & Development, Science Codex, ScienceDaily, The Times of Trenton and The Verge.
An overview of PPPL and PPPL research appeared in the February/March issue of World-Gen magazine.
Several other articles appeared on PPPL’s Young Women’s conference, including an article in The Times of Trenton; and a story in the Star-Ledger on the day of the conference and a longer feature over the weekend.
There were also many articles on the first classroom demonstration of PPPL’s Remote Glow Discharge Experiment in The Princeton Packet, The Times of Trenton, the Princeton University website and Smithsonian.com.
Other published articles include: a story on Princeton University and PPPL graduate student Michael Campanell winning a prestigious Lawrence Award in The Times of Trenton, a story on the Girl Scout STEM Fair at PPPL in the Princeton Alumni Weekly, photos of the Girl Scout STEM Fair in The Times of Trenton, a story on a PPPL panel on future space exploration in The Princeton Packet, and an article and photo on PPPL’s Science Bowl in The Messenger-Gazette.
