Before & after: in 1973, they began construction on the IAEA’s new headquarters, and by 1979, we had moved from downtown Vienna to our beautiful new home at the Vienna International Centre on the edge of the city. The VIC is where we still live today, and it’s also home to several other @unitednations organizations. *

Getting set up for a mammography in Zambia’s Cancer Diseases Hospital. The hospital is 10 years old today, and it is still the country’s first and only cancer treatment centre offering radiation therapy. Before the hospital opened its doors in 2007, treatment options in Zambia were grim: people either had to wait on very long lists for treatment in Zimbabwe or South Africa, or, more often, they would simply die. Now people have an option closer to home, with facilities equipped with the help of the IAEA and specialists, like Mercy Chipampe (in the picture), who have been trained by the IAEA. This support has helped to ensure comprehensive prevention, diagnostic and treatment options to save lives and help people get the care they need. (Louise Potterton)

Woohoo! We’ve launched our new multilingual pages! We created these pages to bring you some of our content in other official @unitednations languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, and Russian. These pages are a good way to dip into the IAEA’s work in your own native language or to brush up on your language skills. (Oleksandra Gudkova & Fady Nassif)*

In 1955 #onthisday, the American town of Arco, Idaho, became the first community in the world — at least temporarily — to have all its electrical needs provided by nuclear power generated by a nearby reactor, BORAX III. For one hour electricity flowed to the town from this boiling water reactor. It demonstrated the practical and peaceful uses of nuclear power and the progress made at that time. The BORAX III was used to also power the BORAX test facility and part of the National Reactor Testing Station. The reactor continued to be used for tests until 1956. *

Scientific research cannot progress if data are not shared. Do you agree? That’s what we think so we’ve signed an agreement to help make 3000 libraries of particle physics data more widely available for free. That’s right: free. Access to this wealth of information was made possible through the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3), which includes support from @cern and 49 other intergovernmental organizations, funding agencies and research centres.

Scientists collecting soil samples in #Austria. These scientists from the IAEA and the @unfao are working to develop new methods for monitoring moisture levels in fragile upland agro-ecosystems. These methods are based on research using nuclear and isotopic techniques to study atoms in soil and water. The data they collect on an atomic level helps them better understand and maintain the right conditions needed to protect soil while also keeping food growing. This is especially important in areas of the world with particularly harsh environments and places being hit hard by climate change.

Two years ago #onthisday the signing of a historic agreement and a Road-map laid out a new path with new commitments related to Iran’s nuclear power programme. Known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, this landmark agreement was signed after careful negotiations between China, France, Germany, Iran, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union. Following this agreement, the United Nations Security Council asked the IAEA to undertake verification and monitoring of Iran’s nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA. Parallel to the signing of the JCPOA, the IAEA signed a Road-map with Iran on the clarification of past and present outstanding issues regarding the country’s nuclear programme. The events of this day represent a significant achievement for international diplomacy as well as a clear and substantive gain for nuclear verification in Iran. *

The old headquarters! This was our old building in the city centre of Vienna, Austria. We were housed there from 1958 until 1979 when we moved to the new Vienna International Centre designed by an Austrian architect, Johan Staber. You can still visit our former headquarters building on Kärntner Ring and even spend the night there: it’s now home to the Grand Hotel Wien. *

Testing water samples in the Environmental Sampling Laboratory in #Benin. These scientists analyze seawater samples using nuclear and isotopic techniques. They are gathering data on radioactive contaminants and heavy metals. This information helps them understand contaminant levels to help decision makers come up with the right policies and programmes to keep people and the environment safe. Their lab was founded with the help of the IAEA, including the donated equipment. (Miklos Gaspar)

Aleksandr Prokhorov was a Soviet physicist born #onthisday in 1916 and who was famous for his pioneering work on lasers and masers. Together with Nikolay Basov and Charles Hard Townes, Prokhorov conducted groundbreaking research on atomic behaviour at different energy levels. He discovered a method for pushing electrons around atoms so they reach higher-energy levels. This served as a theoretical basis for developing the maser and laser. Maser stands for microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, and a laser is a visible maser. These devices produce nearly perfectly parallel beams of waves with almost no interference or static. In 1964, three physicists received a shared Nobel Prize in Physics “for fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the maser-laser principle”.

Happy birthday to two great minds: Edith Quimby and Nikola Tesla! Born #onthisday in 1891, Quimby was an award-winning medical researcher and physicist at the forefront of the emerging field of nuclear medicine. She helped pioneer new techniques to use radiation to diagnose and treat health conditions like cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Her work on the penetration of radiation made it possible for physicians today to determine how much radiation to use in radiotherapy when treating various medical conditions while minimizing side effects. Tesla was an eccentric inventor, physicist and engineer whose experiments in electricity led him to fame. Today, the ‘Tesla’ car is a household name, but this scientist’s ground-breaking work reaches far beyond the automotive industry: his scientific pursuits ranged from X-rays and radio wave transmission and control to steam-powered electricity generation.

Fried eggs anyone? Just kidding. It may look like breakfast in a tin can at first glance, but it’s actually a picture of a specialized canister for safely transporting radioactive and nuclear materials. These cost-effective packages meet IAEA regulations and are designed to help ensure people and the environment are kept safe and secure. (D. Calma)
