Siegfried Hecker, a former Los Alamos National Laboratory director, will talk about Los Alamos and Kazakhstan at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1967 18th St.
Hecker, who currently works for the Center for International Security at Stanford University, has given numerous talks on North Korea.
But this one promises to be different.
In 1992, the Russians pulled out of their former huge nuclear test site at Semipalatinsk, now in the newly independent Republic of Kazakhstan. Los Alamos scientists were concerned about what the Russians may have left behind that could pose a nuclear proliferation or nuclear terrorism problem.
“After 14 years of intense efforts to mitigate these potential problems, we are now allowed to tell the story of the key role Los Alamos played,” Hecker said.
The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Lawry Mann at 662-4590.
