Here’s to another year of noteworthy accomplishments and continued excellence in 2016.

Explosives science at the Laboratory isn’t simply about maintaining and certifying the aging U.S. nuclear deterrent; it’s also about developing novel applications of that science to other national security challenges. In 2015, Los Alamos executed more than 400 high-explosive-driven experiments (averaging more than one a day). The tests were conducted in support of a diverse number of projects, such as rocket propellant science.
