September 28 was chosen to be the professional day of all employees of nuclear industry, because it's the anniversary of adoption of decree on organization of the uranium works. The decree was issued on September 28, 1942 by the State Committee of Defense of the USSR.
According to the decree, the Academy of Sciences of the USSR should have organized a special laboratory for conduction of nuclear researches and tests, concerning uranium-235 fission.
