On 28 April at the Washington meeting of The American Physical Society, the results of a year‐long study of light‐water‐reactor safety were released. The study group, consisting of a dozen physicists, chemists and engineers, was chaired by Harold W. Lewis of the University of California at Santa Barbara; it reported to the Physical Society Council through a Steering–Review Committee consisting of Wolfgang K. H. Panofsky (chairman), Hans A. Bethe, and Victor F. Weisskopf. The study was jointly financed by the former Atomic Energy Commission and the National Science Foundation.
