FAS 60th Anniversary Celebration 



Hans Bethe Award

One World or None

- Richard Garwin
- Frank Von Hippel

In order to control the bomb they had created, the scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project founded the Federation of Atomic Scientists, later the Federation of American Scientists (FAS). With the war over, this scientific community advocated two important objectives - that nuclear bombs should remain under civilian control, and that nuclear materials and technology should fall under international supervision.

The FAS 60th Anniversary is an ideal opportunity to reassess these founding principles and take stock of what we've accomplished, who we've become and where we’re going.
