The proven success of the Stockpile Stewardship Program – which pushed the limits of modern science and engineering by requiring the transition from explosive nuclear weapons testing to what is effectively virtual nuclear testing – was celebrated at a half-day event hosted by the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration

Leading policy officials, thought leaders and the directors of the three national nuclear laboratories (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories) also participated in featured panel discussions on the policy conditions and scientific breakthroughs that have shaped the SSP as one of the greatest scientific achievements of our age, allowing the U.S. to maintain a safe, secure and effective nuclear weapons stockpile without explosive nuclear testing.
President Bill Clinton committed the nation to the SSP in 1995 as part of the announcement that the U.S. would pursue ratification and entry-into-force of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) and maintain the nation’s nuclear arsenal without nuclear explosive tests. While the CTBT has been signed by the U.S., it has not yet been ratified by the Senate.

Featured speakers were: National Nuclear Security Administrator Frank Klotz, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, NNSA Prinicipal Deputy Administrator Madelyn Creedon, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Deputy Secretary of Energy Elizabeth Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall.

Two panel discussions consisted of Brian McKeon, Charles Curtis, Franklin Miller, Bill Goldstein, Charles McMillan, Jill Hruby and C. Robert Kehler.
