  • When we imagine sending humans long-term to live on the surface of Mars, the moon, or other planetary bodies in the not-so-distant future, one of the primary questions is: How will we provide the colonists with power? Kilopower is a small nuclear reactor being designed at Los Alamos National Laboratory in conjunction with NASA that it hopes will one day be the answer to that question.

  • Wildland fires play an important role in many ecosystems, yet in the western United States land managers have spent a century excluding it from the landscape. The resulting overgrown forests, along with hot and dry conditions, have changed the nature of fires when they do happen, making them more intense and more destructive. Figuring how best to respond is important for the health of our forests,...

  • Now one of the fastest supercomputers in the United States, the Trinity Supercomputer Phase II project was completed during the summer of 2017, and the computer became fully operational during an unclassified “open science” run. The computer has now transitioned to classified mode. The Trinity supercomputer is designed to provide increased computational capability for the NNSA Nuclear Security ...

  • The merger of two equal mass neutron stars is simulated using the 3-D code SNSPH. As the two stars merge, their outer edge ejects a spiral of neutron-rich material. The radioactivity in this ejected material is the primary power source for the optical and infrared light observed in the kilonova. A single hyper-massive neutron star remains at the center in a wide field of ejecta material. This hype...

  • Brain neuroscientists and computer scientists call this field neuromimetic computing—building computers inspired by how the cerebral cortex of the brain works. Its cortical processes rely on billions of small biological “switches,” called neurons. To learn, they store and process information. Using an approach called neural networks, researchers are developing computers that simulate neurons and...

  • Cloaking urban areas and wildfire zones, tiny smoke particles suspended in the atmosphere have a sizeable effect on our climate. But the exact effect of many of these aerosols-such as how much sunlight they absorb, thus warming Earth, or reflecting back to space and so cooling Earth-is very uncertain. The Center for Aerosol Forensic Experiments is a new capability that we have here at Los Alamos ...

  • Los Alamos scientists are uncovering clues about the habitability of ancient Mars using the ChemCam instrument that sits atop NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover. ChemCam has discovered 25 different elements on Mars—including manganese and boron—providing important information about conditions that could potentially have supported​ life on the Red Planet. Los Alamos is now developing a new instrument call...

  • Muon-imaging technology — far better at penetrating materials than x-rays — makes it ideal for peering into thick, dense objects. While muon-imaging technology was developed for national security purposes, such as searching cargo shipments for nuclear materials, it could also be useful for determining what is inside any structure. Now, scientists at Los Alamos are using muons to look inside a near...

  • If disease outbreaks could be forecasted like the weather, communities could set up protective measures to mitigate their impact. At Los Alamos National Laboratory, scientists are improving disease-forecasting mathematical models by using clinical data--as well as internet data sources such as Wikipedia, Twitter, and Google--and coupling it with satellite imagery. The goal is to better understandi...

  • A recent study shows that the inner Van Allen belt has less radiation than previously believed. Observations from NASA’s Van Allen probes show the fastest, most energetic electrons in the inner radiation belt are actually much rarer and harder to find than scientists expected. This is good news for spacecraft that are orbiting in the region and can be damaged by high levels of radiation. The resul...

  • A new computer simulation helps explain the existence of puzzling supermassive black holes observed in the early universe. The simulation is based on a computer code used to understand the coupling of radiation and certain materials. “Supermassive black holes have a speed limit that governs how fast and how large they can grow,” said Joseph Smidt of the Theoretical Design Division at Los Alamos ...
