Introduction

The Malaysian Nuclear Society (MNS) is a non-government organization aiming at promoting the development and dissemination of information on nuclear science and technology (NST); providing objective views/ advice on matters relating to NST; and promoting cooperation among members and other organizations of similar objectives.

It was formed as Nuclear Science Society (Persatuan Sains Nuklear Malaysia, PESAN) in 1989, operating in the state of Selangor and Wilayah Persekutuan (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia.

With the expansion of its members to more than seven states in Malaysia in 1994, it was renamed the Malaysian Nuclear Society (MNS).

Currently, MNS enjoys the support of over 2,000 members in the government, private, and corporate sectors (as corporate member) and maintains four international linkages with the European Nuclear Society (ENS), the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the Korean Nuclear Society (KNS) and the Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS).

Associating nuclear science and technology to the bombs is a common tendency and an almost automatic response when many are asked about nuclear. Very little is known about its other applications.MNS aims at correcting this perception through its objectives, viz:

  • to promote the advancement and dissemination of nuclear science and technology (NSTt);

  • to provide objective views and advice on matters pertaining to NST; and

  • to promote cooperation among members and other bodies of similar objectives
