Universal Order From Chaos
2012-10-05 13:03:23

Researchers' discovery of self-organized electromagnetic fields in counter-streaming ionized gases is paving the way for scientists to have new ways to explore how order can emerge from chaos in the universe.

Sandia Nuclear Fusion Concept Undergoes Dry-Run Testing
2012-09-18 10:11:04

Researchers at the Sandia National Laboratories have completed successful preliminary tests on magnetically imploded tubes called liners, which are intended to help produce controlled nuclear fusion at scientific "break-even" energies or better within the next few years.

Fourth Annual Innovation Forum to focus on innovation and how to keep jobs in the United States.

Laser Facility Makes Historic 500 Terawatt Shot
2012-07-18 06:06:44

If all Marty McFly needed was 1.21 gigawatts to travel through time, then one feat accomplished at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's National Ignition Facility (NIF) would provide him enough fuel to travel back to the future 413,223 times.

Airborne Particulates Investigated
2012-06-27 13:37:38

For the first time, Lawrence Livermore researchers and international collaborators have peered into the makeup of complex airborne particulate matter so small that it can be transported into human lungs -- usually without a trace.

US Recaptures Reign As Having World's Fastest Supercomputer
2012-06-18 09:06:53

It has been more than two years since the US lost the number one spot on the TOP500 list of the world’s fastest supercomputers to China, which then lost that spot to Japan’s K Computer.

Precise Measurement Of Radiation Damage Identified
2012-06-06 06:55:26

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers have for the first time simulated and quantified the early stages of radiation damage that will occur in a given material.

Simulations Show Nuclear Weapon Performance In Molecular Detail
2012-06-06 03:56:29

U.S. researchers are perfecting simulations that show a nuclear weapon's performance in precise molecular detail, tools that are becoming critical for national defense because international treaties forbid the detonation of nuclear test weapons.

Atmospheric Warming Intensifies Earth’s Water Cycle
2012-05-22 04:29:42

Scientists report that in the last fifty years, salinity levels in the world’s oceans have shifted and that climate change is affecting global rainfall and evaporation cycles.

Massive Compact Halo Object (MACHO) -- Massive compact halo objects, or MACHOs, are a type of astronomical body proposed as one possible explanation for the presence of dark matter in galactic halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, far smaller than a star, which drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. Recent work has suggested that MACHOs are not...
