COLOR RETURNS TO ANNUAL DEBATE!
RRS proudly returns to the tradition of days gone by, when the annual debates were full of fun, colorful characters and controversy. In 2015 RRS reinstates the original name, The Painter Debates in honor of the late Robert PainterBob was so well known for encouraging open and free discussion that the Radiation Research Society initiated the ''Painter Debate'' which addressed controversial topics at its annual meeting.

Join us Saturday, September 19th for the annual Painter Debate. This year's topic: "This House Believes that Radiation Does Not Offer Any Carcinogenic Risk to Astronauts", argued by Doug Boreham (Pro) and Michael Weil (Con) with introduction by Martin Brown.
