The March 2013 issue of Science & Technology Review is now online. This issue's cover story "Advanced Engineering Delivers More Exact Weapons Performance" describes how Laboratory engineers are applying advanced simulations and technical expertise in explosives and materials science to develop low-collateral-damage munitions. A second feature story reports on the impressive progress NIF researchers have made toward producing a self-sustaining burn of fusion fuel. A highlight describes how switching off a critical gene that manages bone growth benefits efforts to develop targeted therapies for bone formation. Another highlight investigates how chaotic plasmas give birth to orderly electromagnetic fields.
