In conjunction to the 6th Anniversary of the Light Millennium's dedication theme, "Choice for Humanity," we are proud to present a timely and important issue entitled, SAFETY ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS on Wednesday, May 3, 2006 @7:00 PM at the Turkish House.

ABOUT THE PANEL:

April 26 will mark the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine. The Chernobyl anniversary provides a fitting time and backdrop to revisit the issues relating to safety and environmental aspects of nuclear power plants, especially the global effects of the Chernobyl accident which proved that radioactive radiation recognizes no boundaries.

Can the nuclear technology within its highest capacity and with minimum negative effects on human and environment serve for human developments globally? Is this possible? If so, how is it possible?

What are the possible solutions to minimize those nuclear terminal's potential hazards on human beings and the environment through leaking, accidents, earthquakes as well as from its construction to breaking-down process... And what are the short and long term solutions for nuclear waste from the global perspective?

Via this panel, we will seek some answers on the preceding questions in relation to the SAFETY ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS.

The panel is part of the 6th Anniversary Celebration of the Light Millennium organization and sponsored by Federation of Turkish American Associations & Turkish House. Producer of the event,  Bircan Unver.

About the speakers (in alphabetic order):


Gokhan GELISEN,
MS, PE, has 7 years of experience in the analysis, design and detailing of transportation facilities, including tunnels, facilities for underground railway systems, and ventilation buildings as well as in the inspection and development of repair and strengthening schemes for existing structures. He served as a structural engineer at Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas Inc. for East Side Access Project (ESA-MTA, Bechtel-URS JV), the first major rail station in Manhattan in over 90 years and the largest mined underground terminal ever built in the U.S. He is serving as a senior structural engineer at Washington Group International Inc.

Sultan CATTO, Ph.D., Yale University (Mathematical Physics), has made important contributions to the development of elementary particle physics in the area of dynamical supersymmetry, and in mathematics in the areas of spectral theory of automorphic forms and octonionic projective geometries with applications to quantum mechanics. He is a professor and Executive Officer for the Ph.D. Program in Physics at the CUNY Graduate School, member of Baruch College's informal algebra/number theory group, Adjunct Associate Research Scientist in Henry Krumb School of Mines, Columbia University, and Visiting Professor at the Rockefeller University. He was awarded the "Benjamin W. Lee Prize" by the International School of Sub-Nuclear Physics (Ettore Majorana) in Sicily, Italy, for his work on quark-diquark supersymmetry.

Hayrettin KILIC, Ph.D., founder of the Green Think Tank of Turunc Foundation is a peace activist and environmentalist. He is a graduate of University of Istanbul, and received a M.Sc. and PH.D in Plasma Physics from Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey, USA. During his graduate studies, he also worked in PSE&G's  Research Department in NJ investigating Utility Requirements for Fission-Fusion Hybrid Nuclear Power Plants, and Safety and Environmental Aspects of Fusion Reactors.  He worked as a research scientist at Yale University & Stanford University, and as a research professor at University of Ferrara, Italy. In the last 15 years, Dr. Kilic has been working diligently with universities, NGO's, local authorities, politicians in the United States & Europe to educate the public about safety of nuclear power in every shape and form.
