Los Alamos hosts community leaders’ breakfast and science outreach event

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., October 17, 2012—Media are invited to the annual celebration of Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) projects, “Creating Our Tomorrows, LDRD Day 2012” on October 23, at which cutting-edge research concepts will be presented in poster form with the scientists available in person to describe their work.

LDRD funding supports the most advanced, high-risk ideas at Los Alamos. Many of the Laboratory’s successes, which range from the heavens (the Earth’s radiation belts and their effects on satellites) to the Earth (the accelerated cleanup of the Rocky Flats site near Denver), can be traced to LDRD.

Preceding LDRD Day is a community leaders breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m. Laboratory Director Charlie McMillan and Los Alamos Site Office manager Kevin Smith will speak to invited community leaders. The Lab hosts these breakfasts to allow community leaders to hear updates about Laboratory operations.

What:  Community Leaders Breakfast and LDRD Day.

When:  LDRD Posters: 9:20 a.m. – 12:10 p.m. October 23, 2012

Where:  Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder conference center, 20 Buffalo Thunder Trail, Pojoaque, N.M.
