70 ADVANCED NUCLEAR | NATIONAL LABORATORY ARGONNE NATIONAL LABORATORY Argonne National Laboratory is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Argonne was born out of the University of Chicago's work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s. Ever since that time, the Laboratory's goal has been to make an impact- from the atomic to the human to the global scale. Argonne pioneered the application of nuclear fission for energy generation and maintains leading-edge experimental and computational capabilities for developing innovative reactor and fuel cycle systems.
