Several MacArthur grantees have helped put key facts and analysis on the public record regarding a new nuclear facility in North Korea. In late October, The Institute for Science and International Security used publicly available satellite photos to identify the uranium enrichment facility and its potential.

The Stanford team also included John Lewis and Bob Carlin. The New York Times reported on the facility and its possible significance.
