Laboratory scientists win three Office of Science Early Career Research Program awards

May 11, 2011- 
LIVERMORE, Calif. -- Three Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists have earned $7.5 million in funding through the Department of Energy Office of Science Early Career Research Program (ECRP). Early career is defined as principal investigators (PIs) who are within 10 years of receiving a Ph.D. and are either untenured assistant professors on the tenure track, untenured...

Preventing close encounters of the orbiting kind

April 26, 2011- 
Each day, hundreds of active satellites as well as tens of thousands of pieces of "space junk" -- defunct satellites, bits of booster rockets and lost astronaut tools -- orbit Earth.This space junk became front page news two years ago, when a defunct Russian satellite and a privately owned American communications satellite collided near the North Pole. The incident produced clouds of debris...

LLNL researchers find way to mitigate traumatic brain injury in study for Joint IED Defeat Organization

April 18, 2011- 
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have found that soldiers using military helmets one size larger and with thicker pads could reduce the severity of traumatic brain injury (TBI) from blunt and ballistic impacts. Their results came after a one-year study funded by the U.S. Army and the Joint IED Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) to compare the effectiveness of various...

Hydrocarbons in the deep earth

April 14, 2011- 
LIVERMORE, Calif. -- A new computational study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals how hydrocarbons may be formed from methane in deep Earth at extreme pressures and temperatures. The thermodynamic and kinetic properties of hydrocarbons at high pressures and temperatures are important for understanding carbon reservoirs and fluxes in Earth. The work...
