Removing Radioactive Material from Near the Columbia River

Removing radioactive material from near the Columbia River, from the Hanford Site shows
The U.S. Department of Energy and CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company workers successfully
complete an assessment to allow them to receive and store highly radioactive material, called sludge, on
Hanford’s Central Plateau, removing it away from a basin near the Columbia River.

Computer simulations unlock the secrets of antibiotic resistance

Computer simulations unlock the secrets of antibiotic resistance, from the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) explains a strategy to combat antibiotic
resistant bacteria, theoretical biologists at LANL are simulating how some microbes use protein structures to flush out the drugs before they kill the bacteria.
At an atom level, the simulations show the efflux pumps in action, giving researchers a new tool for figuring out how to disable the pumps. That would allow
some currently powerless antibiotics to once again cure a range of public health threats.

From science fiction to real science

This video, published by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory shows how scientists found a way to combine laser beams. The way the Death Star works in the
fictional Star Wars universe has long been dismissed by scientists as something that defies our physical reality, but researchers at Lawrence Livermore's National
Ignition Facility have found a way to successfully combine laser beams using plasma for the first time EVER

Science in 60 - Simulating Flames Helps Tame Future Wildfires

produced by DOE LANL

This video provides a 60 second overview of DOE's Los Alamos National Laboratory's work regarding the interaction between fire and the atmosphere through computer modeling. The behavior of wildfire is being simulated through the computer program, FIRETEC which involves multi-phase fluid dynamics, turbulence and high performance computing. This work will assist in understanding how fire behaves and refining faster ready tools in fire events.
