The June 2011 issue of Science & Technology Review is now online. This issue's feature article, "Training a New Generation of Scientists," describes how Livermore's postdoctoral researchers gain invaluable experience while strengthening the Laboratory's technical expertise. In addition, a research highlight reports on low-angle comets striking Earth that could have created the first amino acids, the building blocks of proteins and all life. Another highlight features a new ribbonlike fiber for reliable, efficient laser light. A final highlight reports on how advanced X-ray tomography techniques for detecting a broad range of explosives will help improve aviation security.
