The July/August 2012 issue of Science & Technology Review is now online. This issue's feature article, "A Home for Energetic Materials and Their Experts," describes how the Energetic Materials Center has become the National Nuclear Security Administration's go-to facility for high explosives formulation, testing and expertise.

A highlight reports on how scientists use spectrographic techniques and a high-powered telescope to study the atmospheric composition of exoplanets. A second highlight reports on advanced microseismic analysis techniques that will shed light on what happens beneath Earth's surface, where hot rock can serve as an energy source. A third highlight features the Laboratory's Education Assistance Program, which helps the workforce stay productive, skilled and dynamic.
