HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Thirty-five years after America’s worst commercial nuclear accident, experts are exploring the past, present and future of nuclear energy at a symposium at Dartmouth College.

The Three Mile Island 35th Anniversary Symposium takes place Friday in Hanover.

Dartmouth played a key role in investigating the March 1979 accident, which involved a partial meltdown inside a reactor at the Three Mile Island plant near Middletown, Pa. President Jimmy Carter’s commission on the accident was led by John Kemeny, who was president of Dartmouth at the time, and 1978 graduate Dan Reicher served as a staff member on the commission.

Reicher, a former assistant secretary of energy, now directs a center for energy policy at Stanford. He’ll join experts from across government, industry and academia at the Dartmouth conference.
