The April/May 2011 issue of Science & Technology Review is now online. This issue's feature article, "From Video to Knowledge," reports on a Livermore computational system that helps the Department of Defense and other agencies monitor wide areas of terrain from overhead, with sufficiently high resolution for tracking people and vehicles. In addition, a research highlight describes how an innovative predictive computational tool explains the basic chemistry controlling biofuel processes. Another highlight features the Laboratory's development of the brightest gamma-ray light source ever, one that will be able to study the nuclei of individual isotopes. A final highlight reports on a Laboratory-private industry partnership to build electromechanical batteries capable of storing and dispatching energy for integration into the electric grid.
