A Look Back at NRL's History

Posted: September 23, 2019

As NRL reaches to achieve new goals, we appreciate those who have supported our mission in the past and currently. Today’s accomplishments are possible only because of the foundation laid by those who saw the possibility of the reactor. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of NRL and taking a look back in history. NOTE - If you can identify someone in our pictures, please take a moment to send an email to reactor@osu.edu. Feel free to share your old photos with us too.
