Rover findings indicate stratified lake on ancient Mars

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) A long-lasting lake on ancient Mars provided stable environmental conditions that differed significantly from one part of the lake to another, according to a comprehensive look at findings from the first three-and-a-half years of NASA's Curiosity rover mission.

Mars Curiosity-Mission Gale Crater Discovery --"Once Harbored a Lake with Drinkable Water"

"Gale crater once held a lake with water that we would even have been able to drink, but we still don't know how long this habitable environment" endured, said Jens Frydenvang, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the...        

Lecture At Los Alamos In 1992: 'The End Of The Soviet Union Is The End Of Who We Thought We Were'

Insight into enzyme's 3-D structure could cut biofuel costs

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) Using neutron crystallography, a Los Alamos research team has mapped the three-dimensional structure of a protein that breaks down polysaccharides, such as the fibrous cellulose of grasses and woody plants, a finding that could help bring down the cost of creating biofuels.

Managing disease spread through accessible modeling

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) A new computer modeling study from Los Alamos National Laboratory is aimed at making epidemiological models more accessible and useful for public-health collaborators and improving disease-related decision making.

On-the-range detection technology could corral bovine TB

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) A research breakthrough allowing the first direct, empirical, blood-based, cow-side test for diagnosing bovine tuberculosis (TB) could spare ranchers and the agriculture industry from costly quarantines and the mass slaughter of animals infected with this easily spread disease.

Ultrafast measurements explain quantum dot voltage drop

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) Solar cells and photodetectors could soon be made from new types of materials based on semiconductor quantum dots, thanks to new insights based on ultrafast measurements capturing real-time photoconversion processes.

Breaking the supermassive black hole speed limit

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) 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.
