What the world's first natural "nuclear reactor" operating 2 billion years ago in Africa can teach us will be discussed today in Kennewick.
Frannie Skomurski, a Pacific Northwest National Laboratory geologist, will discuss "Geology and the Nuclear Fuel Cycle" at a PNNL Community Science and Technology Seminar.
She will discuss the role of rocks and minerals in controlling contaminants in the environment and the ideas they inspire for ceramic waste forms.
Another topic is what can be learned about storing used nuclear fuel from nature's nuclear reactor.
The free talk will be at 7 p.m. at the Mid-Columbia Library, 1620 S. Union St.
