The April/May 2012 issue of Science & Technology Review is now online.

This issue's feature article "Launching Traffic Cameras into Space" reports on how Livermore researchers working on the STARE project are designing nanosatellites to more accurately determine the trajectory of space objects orbiting Earth. A highlight describes how resonance ionization mass spectrometry improves the response time for nuclear forensics by eliminating much of the sample preparation required for isotope analysis. Another highlight reports that a modest increase in the foam padding used in Army helmets could significantly reduce brain injuries. A final highlight describes how laser experiments with thin films of aluminum provide an unprecedented look into the physics of shock waves traveling through a metal.
