Nanotechnology and algae biofuels are featured

One of the best gets even better. Last month we reported that the Lab’s Bradbury Science Museum was voted one of the country’s top museums by the American educator and scientist members of MENSA and now two new exhibits means a trip back to the facility will be well worth your time.

In “Algae to Biofuels: Squeezing Power from Pond Scum,” visitors can learn about the many species of algae, how Lab researchers are working on ways to maximize the amount of energy they can produce and even how to most effectively grow and harvest the material to produce clean energy. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the New Mexico Consortium.

In “Nanotechnology: the Science of the Small,” visitors can learn about the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) where scientists continue to discover how the unique properties of nanosized materials differ from their larger counterparts. Information is also included on how the technology could be used to create smart fabrics, develop cloaking materials and even help detect cancer. Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories jointly operate CINT.   

For more information on all the events and activities at the museum, go to its website.

Innovations for a secure nation

Novel rocket design flight tested

Novel rocket design flight tested

The new rocket fuel and motor design adds a higher degree of safety by separating the fuel from the oxidizer, both novel formulations that are, by themselves, not able to detonate.
