Nanosciences Nanosciences Throughout the scientific community, including Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), researchers say building things atom-by-atom or molecule-by-molecule will revolutionize the production of virtually every human-made object. Exciting prospects-but they also point out that the promise of nanotechnology can only be realized if we learn to understand the special rules that control behavior at this small scale and develop the skill needed to integrate these concepts into practical devices. The excitement stems from the understanding that the behavior of materials at the nanoscale is nothing like that at the large scale. The necessary tools, such as powerful new microscopes, have been developed to let researchers see these surprising behaviors. Sandia National Labs'

National Labs to Strengthen Natural Gas Pipelines' Integrity, Reliability National Labs to Strengthen Natural Gas Pipelines' Integrity, Reliability DOE Receives 24 Proposals, Valued at Half Billion Dollars, For Technologies to Improve Power Plants, Cut Emissions MORGANTOWN, WV - To identify and develop advanced technology for the nation's natural gas pipelines, the Energy Department is calling upon the national labs to assist private industry in developing innovative technologies that establish a framework for future natural gas transmission and distribution systems. The laboratories will help 11 government-industry cost-shared projects, many of which center around detection devices designed to prevent pipeline damage, DOE selected earlier this year (see May 31, 2001, announcement). DOE estimates that natural gas consumption will increase by 60 percent by 2020, placing an unaccustomed demand on the U.S.'s aging natural gas infrastructure. The already-selected 11 projects address that need by demonstrating robotics and other sophisticated ways of bolstering strength, and, therefore, the integrity and reliability of the pipelines the crisscross the country.

R&D 100: Battery Technology Goes Viral Learn how Energy Department researchers are harnessing power from an unlikely source -- viruses. July 24, 2013 If you've ever heard the thunderous sound of a sonic boom, you've experienced the shock waves in the air created by an object traveling faster than the speed of sound. But what happens when an object travels faster than the speed of light? At Jefferson Laboratory, construction is underway to upgrade the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) and the CEABF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS12) at Hall B. During the experiments, the accelerator will shoot electrons at speeds faster than the speed at which light travels in the same medium, creating shock waves that emit a blue light, known as Cherenkov light -- this light is equivalent to the sonic boom. By recording data from Cherenkov light, scientists will be able to map a nucleon's three-dimensional spin.

Shoes and Energy Shoes and Energy Name: Steven Status: other Grade: other Location: CT Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: A company named Athletic Propulsion Labs designed a basketball shoe that they claim makes a player jump higher. The shoe has "Load and Launch" technology built into the front sole of the shoe that is some sort of spring mechanism. The way I see it, this mechanism cannot allow a player to jump higher because only an external force can produce motion. The spring mechanism is internal to the body (including the player, shoes, socks uniform) that is launched into the air and an internal force cannot produce motion. Despite this, the shoe has been tested and found to provide additional lift. The shoe has actually been banned by the NBA because it provides an unfair advantage to players who wear them.

Silica Gel Silica Gel Name: Lisa Status: educator Grade: 9-12 Location: Outside U.S. Country: USA Date: Fall 2011 Question: Can you tell me how silica gel is correctly categorized (I see it called narrow or large pore as well as Type A, B and C)? What is the difference? Are they all used the same way, as a desiccant? Replies: Hi Lisa, The "A", "B" and "C" designations of silica gel refer to the pore size. The "A" type has large numbers of very small pores, and is generally used as a desiccant. Water vapor is adsorbed into these pores, or water vapor already adsorbed, is released upon heating. This is the type normally found in small bags packed in electronic and optical products. The "C" type has somewhat fewer (but still very large numbers) large pores. This type is used for large volumes of liquid water absorption, commonly as cat litter.

These swabs are then "plated" on canned beets placed inside of a petri dish. Does this sound like a realistic and safe experiment for middle school students? NEWTON BBS does not recommend growing/culturing bacteria without the supervision of a microbiologist, and a properly equipped microbiology laboratory. Safety is our main concern! Growing dangerous bacteria species unknowingly is a real possibility and serious illness may occur without proper handling techniques. Furthermore, without proper bacterial disposal procedures such as an autoclave can guarantee, there is a danger to anyone who comes in contact after disposal.

Replies: Hi Sam, A fine sand, washed in distilled water, would be the nearest to a nitrogen-free soil you could easily get. Any soil with organic material/humus would likely have some forms of organic and inorganic nitrogen. Sand would also be deficient in nearly all other nutrients, but overall it would allow you to control all nutrients independently. Don You can use the silica (quartz) sand used in fish tanks. That medium will be nitrogen-free, or very close to nitrogen-free.

Insolation as Percent of Total Solar Output Insolation as Percent of Total Solar Output Name: Terry Status: student Grade: 9-12 Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: What percentage of the sun's total output do we actually receive on Earth? Replies: Terry, First, imagine a sphere around the Sun with a radius equal to the distance of the Sun to the Earth. Using geometry, calculate the total surface area of this sphere (AS = 4 pr r[of our imagined sphere]^2). The portion of this area that the Earth takes up is the area of the cross-section of the Earth (AE = pi r[of Earth]^2). Dividing AE by AS tells us what fraction of the Sun's output (assuming it is equally dispersed to the surface of our hypothetical sphere) reaches the Earth. Multiplying this by 100 gives percent.

Albino Gene Loci Albino Gene Loci Name: Gabreal Status: other Grade: 9-12 Location: Outside U.S. Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: What chromosome is albinism located on? Replies: There are actually many different kinds of albinism which occur due to mutations in different genes. In principle, all forms of albinism share a common trait, namely that affected individuals do not produce melanin, the major pigment protein in our skin. However, there are a wide variety of potential mutations that can lead to this result, and they are located on several different chromosomes. One notable case is of ocular albinisms, which only affect the eyes (and not the skin). These mutations have been shown to be present almost exclusively on the X chromosome. As a result, most individuals affected with X-linked ocular albinism will be male, similar to the genetics of X-linked color blindness.

Convection Currents in Mantle Convection Currents in Mantle Name: Rasy Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: CA Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: What causes convection currents in Earth's mantle? Replies: There are two sources of heat we usually think about. First of all, there are radioactive atoms in the deep earth and as they decay, they give off heat (just like a nuclear reactor). The second source is a bit more difficult to understand. The earth formed by a whole pile of particles, dust and what we might call meteorites, collecting together due to gravity. This is called accretion. Every time a new piece of matter hit the new earth it caused heat. Not all the heat escaped because there were too many collisions over too short a time). Now some of that heat is trapped deep underground and fuels the cells.

Ice Advantages Ice Advantages Name: Gloria Status: other Grade: 12+ Location: Outside U.S. Country: USA Date: N/A Question: What are some biological advantages of ice in reference to a lake, pond, or stream? Replies: Gloria One of the things I can think of is that some eggs and plant seeds need to experience a freeze before they will hatch or germinate. That is a genetic characteristic of their life-cycle. Some eggs or seeds may require a couple of freeze cycles before they hatch or germinate. The advantage to this is that it prevents pre-mature hatch/germination. For example, if we have an unusually warm day in January, the eggs or seeds won't hatch or germinate and then die in the middle of winter. We have all seen daffodil flowers rise early because of unusually warm January/February weather only to be frozen by a March cold spell.

Bovine Vision Bovine Vision Name: Peggy Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: Outside U.S. Country: USA Date: Spring 2010 Question: How is a cows vision, I mean do they see in black and white or color? Replies: Peggy A common misconception about cattle (particularly bulls) is that they are enraged by the color red (something provocative is often said to be "like a red flag to a bull"). This is incorrect, as cattle are red-green color-blind.[31][32] The myth arose from the use of red capes in the sport of bullfighting; in fact, two different capes are used. Please refer to the following URL for the rest of the story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle It is not the color of the cape that angers the bull, but rather the movement of the fabric that irritates the bull and incites it to charge.

Light and Exothermic Reactions Light and Exothermic Reactions Name: Nancy Status: educator Grade: 9-12 Location: NJ Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: My students are working on a demonstration that illustrates either an endothermic or exothermic process. They've decided on the Luminol reaction with 3% hydrogen peroxide. I have always thought (perhaps incorrectly) that "thermic" is used when discussing heat energy - and there is very little heat change in this reaction. In the practice demo that the students did, the temperature dropped only about a degree C. However, there was a significant amount of light energy given off. When light energy is released, is that also considered exothermic? Or would it be more correct to call it an endothermic reaction (because the temp dropped), but also an exergonic reaction (because light was released)?

I never knew that it would do this, but I tried to add onto this by seeing if calcium carbonate (drawing chalk?) would affect the acidity or cause a reaction. I used a pen to stir it because it was the only thing I had to use, but I have noticed now after about two days, the pen is releasing a green cloud whenever I open it. The pen is a Zebra click pen and whenever I click it, a cloud of green dust or substance comes out. What is it? Why is the pen doing this? Was it caused by using it to mix the items in my experiment?

Development Process Development Process Name: Liesl Status: educator Grade: K-3 Location: Outside U.S. Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: Our 2nd grade class is observing the life cycle of what appears to be monarch butterflies unfold. Currently, our little caterpillars appear to be shedding chunks of their bodies. What is happening to them? Replies: The monarchs are molting. Since insects have exoskeletons (skeletons on the outside of the body) they must periodically "shed" to accommodate further growth. These shed exoskeletons are known as exuvia. Each stage in-between a molt is known as an instar. Try to have your students count the number of molts before the caterpillar undergoes metamorphosis.

Barn Pole Paradox Barn Pole Paradox Name: Kwanalouie Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: TX Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: I do not see how this relativity problem is explained. Its a variation of the barn pole paradox. Can you offer insights? Replies: Kwanalouie, Einstein's special relativity theories apply to constant VELOCITY situations. This means no change of speed or direction. An observer on the ring is constantly changing direction. After half of a revolution, the observer's direction has exactly reversed. Length contraction is much more complex in such a situation. General relativity is needed for this situation. Dr. Ken Mellendorf Physics Instructor Illinois Central College You are mixing relative effects with non-relative effects to create the paradox. In creating what you think is a paradox, you are placing unrealistic constraints on the system (e.g. how do you decouple this massively energetic ring from the silo?).

Bacteria Resistance Bacteria Resistance Name: Brittany Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: AZ Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: Why have bacteria evolved resistance so rapidly? Replies: Suppose you have a bug spray and you use it to exterminate a cloud of mosquitoes. In the cloud of mosquitoes there may be one or two that are immune to the effects of the bug spray. So what you do is kill all the mosquitoes that don't have resistance to the bug spray Leaving behind the mosquitoes that do, and then those remaining mosquitoes regenerate. That is the sad story of how bugs develop resistance to our countermeasures. So far, we have always been able to find a bug spray formula to take care of the present cloud of mosquitoes. Sincere regards, Mike Stewart Brittany, To answer your question, a couple of things need to be considered.

But when a lot of folks use the same letter the same way it increases understanding about what is being talked about. It is like, "Why does a red traffic light mean stop and a green light mean go?

Lubricating Rubber Bands and Elasticity Lubricating Rubber Bands and Elasticity Name: Frank Status: other Grade: other Location: MA Country: USA Date: Fall 2011 Question: I am building a space derby rocket, which is powered by a rubber band motor. Many sources recommend lubricating the rubber bands - the main rationale for this is that they improve the elasticity of the rubber band and possibly reduces friction. I can see how reducing friction would be advantageous, but it seems to me that given a fixed number of winds, improving elasticity would reduce the actual kinetic energy of the motor. (I can see that improving elasticity may allow for a greater number of winds and >reduce the chance it breaks- but I am assuming the same number of winds.) Do you agree or disagree?

Turbulence Modeling and Wing Design Turbulence Modeling and Wing Design Name: Kosta Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: CA Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: I am currently experimenting with different wing designs and a wind tunnel. I found a rigorous text on turbulence modeling which caught my interest and am considering studying it. Would knowing turbulence modeling help in aircraft wing design? Replies: Kosta Turbulence increases the drag on a wing which reduces its performance to produce lift. Turbulence modeling allows you to predict the level of turbulence a wing design will encounter. The goal is to achieve laminar air flow over the wing for the least amount of drag and the most amount of lift for the given airspeed. Sincere regards, Mike Stewart Kosta Turbulence increases the drag on a wing which reduces its performance to produce lift.

White Blood Cells Oxygen Source White Blood Cells Oxygen Source Name: Meg Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: KY Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: All cells need oxygen. That is a common fact. So then where do white blood cells get theirs? Replies: The oxygen for white blood cells comes from the blood, just as it does for other tissues. Oxygen is transported from the lungs to red blood cells, and as the red blood cells move through the blood, they supply the white blood cells with oxygen. br> Diffusion is the primary mechanism that drives this oxygen transport -- as the white blood cell converts O2 to CO2, it establishes a concentration gradient between the blood (high O2) and the interior of the white blood cell (low O2). This concentration gradient drives oxygent transport.

Radio Reception Radio Reception Name: Mark Status: other Grade: other Location: AZ Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: When a cell phone receives radio waves from a cell tower, are the received photons creating an electric current within the metal components of the cell phone antenna? In other words, are the photons being converted into electrons? If so, how is this occurring? Replies: The electrons are already there in the antenna and circuitry. The radio and microwave photons simply push them into motion, which is the electric current. Richard E. Barrans Jr., Ph.D., M.Ed. Department of Physics and Astronomy University of Wyoming Mark, The photons do not become electrons. The photons give energy to the electrons, forcing them to move through the antenna. The radio waves have a specific frequency. The electrons move back and forth through the antenna with that same frequency. This motion of the electrons is the oscillating current that your cell phone amplifies and then translates into the sounds you hear.

"Apparent Melting" "Apparent Melting" Name: Bernard Status: educator Grade: 6-8 Location: CA Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: This is about melting. I know you already answered "Wood will not melt." And also, "sugar does not melt, it decomposes." Is there a different name for this, then? Somewhere I saw "apparent melting."? What if wood was heated up in an inert gas environment, and placed under pressure. Could liquid wood then be produced? If it is true sugar does not melt (i.e. a physical change), then what are it is products if it "decomposes" (which is a chemical change)? Replies: Bernard, The reason that some substances decompose rather then melt is because the energy required to break the chemical bonds within the molecule is less than the energy required to break the intermolecular forces holding the molecules in a solid state. Since the melting temperature can be a function of pressure (look at any phase diagrams), it is possible to increase or decrease the temperature of melting and as such it is possible to move the melting temperature above or below the decomposition temperature since decomposition temperature is not as strongly affected by pressure.

Each Substance Unique Density Each Substance Unique Density Name: Colin Status: educator Grade: 6-8 Location: CO Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: Is it true that the density of each substance is unique? (That is my understanding.) So when my students ask, will a substance with a density of 1g/cc float or sink in water, I should tell them that this is a highly unlikely situation because pure, distilled water is the only known substance with that density? Replies: Hi Colin, No, the density of a substance is not a unique property of the substance. Density is not enough to uniquely identify a solid or liquid. It certainly is one of several physical properties that one likes to measure in order to be sure that a substance is what one supposes it to be. Consider carbon. In its graphitic form a sample of carbon will have a density of about 2.2. In the form of diamond, carbon's density is about 3.5. This simple example shows that the manner in which the element is formed results in a phase with a very different density. More generally, one can form various minerals with various densities and there is no guarantee that one of those will not have a density of 1. The same is true with liquids - thousands of new compounds are synthesized every year, and I am willing to bet any money that some of them have a density of 1 g/cc.

Computers Communicating Computers Communicating Name: Billy Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: FL Country: USA Date: Fall 2011 Question: How do computers talk to each other? Replies: Hi Billy, Great question! Much like how we talk to each other, computers have a common language. For most of us it's English. In addition, computers follow what is called protocol, much like how we follow rules and etiquette. The computer language is made up by an electrical signal and it is either 5 volts or 0 volts. This can be represented as a [1] or a [0]. This one or zero is what is called a bit in the binary language. Binary, meaning two bits of information. The language can be defined so that [1] means "yes" and [0] means " no". But computers can process multiple bits per given time. So adding more bits, gives us more words. Say two bits of information: [00], [01], [10], [11]. Each of these can mean "yes", "no", "maybe", "I do not know".

Seed Numbers Seed Numbers Name: Dan Status: student Grade: n/a Location: N/A Country: USA Date: Summer 2011 Question: Why do some seed plants produce numerous seeds, while others just one? Replies: Hi Dan, When a plant produces seed, the purpose is to carry on the species - to produce more plants. The strategy employed by the plant will vary depending on the environment in which the plant has developed, but in the main there are two main strategies which I categorize in my head as "Special Care" and "Safety in Numbers". "Safety In Numbers" is how the dandelion chooses to tackle the problem. It produces huge numbers of seeds, and does very little to help those seeds other than to make sure they get away from the parent plant (That's trhe job of the parachute) Other plants which use this strategy include most herbs such as mint, borage, dill where the seeds are very small, and are produced in huge numbers.

Melting Salt Versus Dissolving Salt Melting Salt Versus Dissolving Salt Name: Mark Status: student Grade: 9-12 Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: When we try to melt a certain amount of table salt, we have to raise the temperature significantly, but when we drop it into the water, its atoms are easily separated. Where does this energy comes from? Replies: You could consider it a chemical reaction (though easily reversible) between water and salt. When: the component ions of the salt are dispersed in the water and individually hydrated, the overall energy state is lower than when: the ions combine into a salt crystal and the water is someplace separate from it; so the reaction goes forward. You could think of it as potential energy, some energy that has long been stored up, just waiting to be given the kinetic occasion to act (by putting the salt crystal in contact with the water). The world is full of potential energies like that, and industrial civilization lives by finding and activating them.

Replies: Many plants naturally have abscisic acid within the seeds to prevent sprouting until the spring. http://plantphys.info/seedg/seed.html "Inhibitors Present: Many plant species invest chemicals in the developing seeds, and these chemicals inhibit the development of the embryos. They keep the embryos dormant. Obviously the seed must have some way to eliminate these chemicals before they can sprout." "Abscisic Acid: Many temperate zone species that use inhibitors use abscisic acid. This chemical induces dormancy in the embryo. The chemical is produced in abundance in the late summer and early fall. The seeds in the fruits become dormant so, even if they are dispersed in autumn, they cannot sprout. During the winter enzymes in the seeds degrade the abscisic acid. By spring the abscisic acid is gone and the seed can sprout."

One report said that cosmic ray flux decreased as the mass passed Earth late on Tuesday and Wednesday. Why? I thought it would increase due to all of the energetic particles. Perhaps the sun is NOT part of the source of cosmic rays? Please help me understand this non-intuitive event. Replies: Justin English is a difficult language and sometimes the reading of words do not result in the meaning the author intended. I think the author meant to say that as the solar storm passed by the Earth, the Cosmic Ray Flux decreased. Both of your assumptions are correct. The Cosmic Ray Flux would increase as the storm approached the Earth and peaked and the Sun is not the only source of Cosmic Ray Flux.

Sincere regards, Mike Stewart br> Annaliese, As you have already figured out, it is unreliable to use some sort of visual inspection for the melting of ice cream, or, for that matter, any real world substance. The problem is that during melting, there is an equilibrium between the solid and the liquid, that is, the solid is becoming liquid, while the liquid is becoming solid, in different parts of the mixture.

How can one tell the difference between them when no label is supplied. Are there solvents one can use to separate one from another in the group? I understand there differences in the stretch rate Polypropylene, polyester, stretch less than Nylon, Nylon stretching the most. Polyester is the most UV resistant. All are hydrophobic to various degrees polypropylene, polyester than nylon being the least. Polypropylene, polyester, or Nylon webbing. How can one tell the difference between them when no label is supplied. Replies: Hi Arye, The short answer to your question on how to tell these polymers from each other is "with considerable difficulty"! None of the three polymers you mention (polypropylene, nylon, and polyester) are soluble in any solvents, so detection by solvency is not possible. None of the rest of the properties you mention (stretch rate and hydrophobic properties) produce sufficiently clear cut results to be useful. One semi-reliable way to tell them apart is by the smell that results from heating a small sample. Polyolefins such as polypropylene (and polyethylene) smell like heated wax (since these polymers are in essence simply long chain waxes). Nylons also tend to have their own distinctive odor when heated.

Current Oil Formation Current Oil Formation Name: Jerry Status: n/a Grade: other Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: Is oil still being formed in an ongoing fashion by geologic and physical processes just as it was millions of years ago? Replies: Jerry, The process of converting organic detritus into oil only requires that the organic material (dead plants, animals, etc) undergo decomposition in an oxygen poor environment. Long chain hydrocarbons are formed in this way. So in places where there is a lot of organic material buried under rock or below the pinocline of some body of water (a depth and temperature of water where little roiling happens and hence oxygen does not appreciably mix in), then the conversion of organic material into oil should be happening. This might lead you to wonder why are we concerned that fossil fuel is being depleted - and this goes to how much oil is being extracted and used, versus how much oil is being produced by the natural process.

Asteroids, Charge, and Magnetic Fields Asteroids, Charge, and Magnetic Fields Name: Daniel Status: student Grade: 12 Location: MD Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: If a fragment from an asteroid falls to Earth and a static electric charge is built up in the fragment as it falls, does it generate a magnetic field? If so, why? Replies: Yes, it would. A moving electric charge creates a magnetic field. The "why" basically comes from relativity. When the charge moves, its electrical interaction with other charged objects changes because of the way spacetime distorts. That change manifests as a magnetic field. Richard E. Barrans Jr., Ph.D., M.Ed. Department of Physics and Astronomy University of Wyoming Daniel, Current is the motion of electric charge from one location to another. Current, as we usually think of it, is the movement of electrons within a wire, and this current will create a magnetic field surrounding the wire. Maxwell's equations define the strength of this field based on the value of this current (amount of charge flowing through the wire each second). Current is not confined to wires, however; electrons flowing in space will define a current (and associated magnetic field) as well. For a charged asteroid, you can define current associated with its charge moving through space and an associated magnetic field.

RNA as a Catalyst RNA as a Catalyst Name: Neeraja Status: other Grade: other Location: Outside U.S. Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: Why is RNA a better catalyst than DNA? Specifically what features of its structure make it better and why? Replies: Neeraja, It's a good question, and my short answer is that it's because nucleic acid enzymes must be single-stranded (ss), and there's a lot more ss-RNA around than ss-DNA. Also, ss-RNA is more flexible than ss-DNA. Adding the two together, you get two strong reasons why RNA is a better chemical for this purpose than DNA. For a little more detail, keep reading: First, let me start with a basic explanation of how catalysis works: A biological catalyst, whether protein or nucleic acid, is a three-dimensional molecule with a specific 3D shape and chemical surface properties. The way biological catalysts work is by having one or more areas on their surface where target molecule(s) can attach. The molecules attach because the catalyst surface has the right kind of chemistry and shape for them to "fit" (by "fit", I mean the system has lower energy when together than when separate). Then, while bound to the catalyst, multiple things can happen to cause a chemical reaction -- such as other molecules attaching, or the catalyst acting on the target molecule, etc.

Measuring Soot from Candle Measuring Soot from Candle Name: Cathy Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: MD Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: How can you measure the amount of soot coming from a candle? Is there some kind of mathematical equation that can be used to determine this? Replies: Cathy, I am not aware of any mathematical equation that can predict the amount of soot formed. The problem is that soot is the result of an incomplete combustion of the candle. A complete combustion would produce CO2, H2O (and maybe a few other types of gases) and so there would not be any soot. Soot is mostly solid carbon (with a few other types of atoms mixed in) produced when these carbon do not react with the oxygen present. This means that the amount of soot would be dynamically controlled by the burning temperature, the amount of oxygen available at the reaction sites, the amount of heat being produced, etc. etc. ... very complex. It might be better simply to try to correlate the amount of soot (collected by scraping and weighing) to whatever variable you are interested in while trying to hold all other variables constant.

She is doing a Science Experiment on the rate of evaporation of different liquids (water, salt water, alcohol, vinegar, and bleach). Can you have more liquid than what you originally started with? She discovered that droplets of liquid were "stuck" on the side of the flasks and when she measured the liquid, they were more than 50 ml. Process: She put 50 ml of liquid into flasks. Water was placed in both a flask and beaker...just as a side experiment about the container shape. She placed the liquids in a room with an ambient temperature that fluctuated between 68-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Unfortunately, we did not measure the humidity (in reading the archives, it has a huge effect on evaporation). She turned on a work lamp for one hour a day for 10 days. The temperature in the room would get up to 98 degrees Fahrenheit.

Gases Trapped in Filter Gases Trapped in Filter Name: Jay Status: student Grade: 9-12 Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: Would the toxic gases that are trapped in a charcoal filter gas mask be an example of a mixture, solution, or something else? Replies: It certainly would be a mixture. Generally, the gases are considered to be "adsorbed:" the molecules cling to the outsides of the charcoal particles. Richard E. Barrans Jr., Ph.D., M.Ed. Department of Physics and Astronomy University of Wyoming That is an example of adsorbtion, (with a "D") which is a fairly common mode for mixtures of solid and gas. Adsorbtion can have bond strengths ranging from weak like of physical condensation (solids and liquids vs gasses) to almost as strong as a chemical bond within a molecule. It depends on the particular pair of adsorbing and adsorbed species. Because the solid's structure remains unchanged, the gas doesn't fully penetrate the solid, it just sticks on the surface. The mixture remains pretty heterogeneous on the microscopic scale: solid here, gas there. That is one reason why it is not considered a solution, even though the bonding energy there can be greater than that of most solutions.

Carbon-14 Nitrogen-14 Binding Energies Carbon-14 Nitrogen-14 Binding Energies Name: Abby Status: educator Grade: 9-12 Location: WI Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: Carbon-14 decays into nitrogen-14 by beta emission. I have/had the understanding that when a nuclei decays the binding energy of the daughter is greater than the binding energy of the parent. From my research this does not seem to be true for carbon-14 into nitrogen-14. The binding energy per nucleon for carbon-14 is 7.520319 MeV and the binding energy per nucleon for nitrogen-14 is 7.475614 MeV. I understand that carbon-14 had too many neutrons and that it decays by beta because of this. I understand that nitrogen-14 is more stable than carbon-14 but if it is more stable than why isn't the binding energy of nitrogen-14 greater than that of carbon-14. Hope this all makes sense.

Earth Historic Rotation Rates Earth Historic Rotation Rates Name: Nikki Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: AZ Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: Did Earth ever spin faster than it does now? Did Earth ever have 18 hour days instead of 24 hours? Replies: Nikki, Earth rotates on its axis and continues to slow down because of tidal braking. Yes, it is the tides that result in the ever-slowing rotation of Earth. The main cause of the tides is the moon. That is, the ocean is constantly being pulled toward the moon while Earth rotates under this bulge of water. In order for the sun to be overhead at noon we add one second to the clock about every eighteen months. Yes, that is true, Earth's rotation slows by aboutone second every eighteen months. About 600,000,000 years ago, there were 420 days in one year! About 300,000,000 years ago there were 395 days in one year. Today, there are about 365.25 days per year.

Magnetic Reversal and Magnetic Strips Magnetic Reversal and Magnetic Strips Name: Mary Ellen Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: NE Country: USA Date: N/A Question: My earth science teacher has been telling us about continental drift and magnetic striping in ocean rocks due to magnetic reversals. She said that by the pattern, this is due to happen again, soon. Will the strip on my bus card still work? Will magnets that now attract, repel (and the other way around? Replies: Mary Ellen, Magnetic reversals are not predictable. There is no pattern to the reversals. There is no evidence that this will occur any time soon. The last magnetic reversal occurred 730,000 years ago, so for the last 730,000 years the north end of the magnetic needle on your compass always pointed north. It takes about 1000 years for a reversal to occur, so, if you took a Rumpelstiltskin sleep, when you woke up, the north end of your compass needle would point south.

Meteor Soft Landing Meteor Soft Landing Name: Les Status: other Grade: 12+ Location: WA Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: Given the surface speed of the earth (daily rotation, yearly orbit, etc.) in relation to everything, is it possible for a meteor or asteroid at just the right path and speed to make a "soft" landing on the surface? Replies: Les I guess it is possible that a meteor or asteroid would have just the right course and speed to make a soft landing on Earth, but it is highly unlikely. Most meteors and asteroids travel and really high speeds. You see them burn in the atmosphere nightly and very brief streaks of light. Sincere regards, Mike Stewart Les, It would not be possible without risking burning up in the atmosphere. To make a soft landing, the meteor would also have to be able to make a soft launch. Barring energy loss to the atmosphere, energy conservation requires that such a landing work the same in both directions. Such a landing could be no slower than the speed needed to launch the meteor back to where it came from. With energy loss due to the atmosphere, slowing from this necessary speed to a soft landing would probably burn the meteor up. An Apollo spaceship landing without open parachutes is better than a meteor could do.

Hydrogen Versus Deuterium Bonds Hydrogen Versus Deuterium Bonds Name: A. K. Status: student Grade: 9-12 Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: If you have a compound, say HCl, why does the bond length decrease when you substitute the hydrogen atom with a deuterium atom? Replies: Hi A. K. Think of the bond in a diatomic molecule (H2 versus D2) as a spring between two spheres (the atoms). Let's say the available energy to make the spring vibrate is constant (you supply a specific amount of energy). The H2 spring will vibrate more because the masses being held by the spring is lighter than that of the D2 spring (remember that D is twice the mass of H). In effect the H2 system can extend farther away from the center than the D2 system. Since the closest approach of the H2 and D2 systems are the same (the same sized spheres touching each other) and the H2 system can get farther out than the D2, we can see that the average distance between the two H's is larger than that of the two D's.

Cow Eye Restoration Cow Eye Restoration Name: Kendall Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: TX Country: USA Date: Fall 2011 Question: I'm working on a science fair experiment. I need help with my science fair question. My question is" Can you restore a cows eyes lens after it has been removed from the eye for a few days?" What i was trying to ask in my question is 'is there a type of material of chemical that can clear the lens even after it has become cloudy. Replies: Kendall, That is an interesting question. A lens can be removed from the eye, but typically a lens cannot be cleared. The changes to the internal structure of the lens are permanent, thus making it cloudy. A new, artificial lens could be put in if there was one the right size for a cow eye, just like in human cataract surgery. There are other conditions that can cause cloudiness of the eye, but that usually involves the fluid in the front of the lens. These conditions can sometimes be treated medically.

Reptile Hibernation Reptile Hibernation Name: Sammy Status: student Grade: K-3 Location: VA Country: USA Date: Fall 2011 Question: When reptiles hibernate do they feel dead? Replies: Sammy: Do you mean does the animal itself feel like it is dead? Or do you mean does it feel dead to us when we touch it? The answer to both is, no. If you were to pick up a hibernating snake, for instance, it would feel cold, but it would not be stiff as it would be if dead, and if you handled it it would begin to stir. We really can't say how the animal itself feels, they are enough different from us that we can't know exactly how their brains sense their environment, especially in hibernation which is not like anything humans experience. J. Elliott I can't imagine what it would be like to "feel dead." More likely, they are unconscious or drowsy, possibly like a deep sleep.

I ask this because I've witnessed an instance that I found most interesting... it was a father, who before he ever conceived his child lost his pinkie on his left hand, and years later he has a child and crazy as it is the child on its left hand was born with an extra finger an extra pinkie.. it has had me contemplating whether this machination has any validity in genes altering during our life perhaps because of our life choices or environmental factors ect ect. Replies: The example you describe is pure coincidence -- not genetic. The environment does impact our genes, and those genes can be passed on to our children. However, the changed gene has to be in the gamete (sperm or egg) -- these cells alone contain the genetic material that is passed along. A change to a finger (that has not also occurred in the gamete) would not be passed on.

Sound Pitch and Distance Travelled Sound Pitch and Distance Travelled Name: Chris Status: educator Grade: 4-5 Location: MI Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: Do high pitched sounds travel farther than low pitched sounds? Replies: Sorry Chris, it is the other way around. If you are near lightening you hear a crack or bang which is a high frequency sound. But far away from the lightening you hear thunder as a low pitch, rolling, boom. The high frequency sound from the crack you hear close up does not made it very far from the lightening (which is the cause of the noise). Hope this helps. R. W. "Mr. A." Avakian Quite the opposite. Low pitched sounds attenuate more slowly with distance. Fog-horns are an evolutionary example of the point. Of course, they are meant to operate in elevated humidity, which adds another loss factor. I will try to tell you more later. On the other hand, it is quite possible for high-pitched sounds to be _more_noticeable_ to a given being in a given noise background.

River Rocks, Color, and Rings River Rocks, Color, and Rings Name: Sean Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: WA Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: I was walking a beach on the Deschutes River in Olympia Washington with a friend last night. We were picking up rocks and checking them out and we came across a few that were black with white, crystal-like rings around them. We also found a few that were other primary colors with secondary colored rings around them. What is the most likely cause of the white and black rings around the rocks? They are beautiful and I would like to know more about them. Replies: Melissa, Sean: It depends upon what you mean by rings. Some of the river rock may be coated with deposits of lime from the waters or soils in which they rested for a while. The black color would be from minerals included in the lime crusts. These coatings should fizz slightly if you drop some vinegar on them and you would also be able to scratch them with a knife blade or pair of scissors.

Lift, Friction of 18-Wheelers Lift, Friction of 18-Wheelers Name: Kurt Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: FL Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: I am a 9th grade student working on a science fair project. In my project, my idea is to design airfoils that can be fitted to the top of 18 wheelers to create lift on the vehicle and thus reduce rolling friction and hopefully give 18 wheelers a higher miles per gallon ratio. I have been testing my designs in a small scale wind tunnel that I have created and I am unsure how to scale my results to a full sized 18 wheeler with a full scale airfoil. For example, if a 36 square inch surface gives me 0.4 ounce lift at 12 miles per hour wind speed, what life could I expect for a full sized 480 sqare foot surface at 70 miles per hour (where the attack angle is the same in both cases)? Thank you for your time. I hope that my work can result in more energy efficient transportation of goods.

I do have a grasp of the concept of expansion. What I do not understand is and it bothers me: It is said that the outer galaxies of our observable universe are expanding between them faster than closer ones. First I am correct in saying that? Second, if I interpreted what I read correctly, would an observer at the edge of our observable universe, looking towards our galaxy see the opposing situation: an observable universe that is reducing in expansion, with that other observer's outer galaxies progressively expanding less (as this would be the galaxies closer to us)? Replies: Hi Ivan -- If you were in that far-away galaxy, you would make the same observation about galaxies near the milky way: that the farther-away galaxies are moving away from you faster than galaxies closer to you.

Energy in a System Energy in a System Name: Michael Status: educator Grade: 9-12 Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: I am a high school chemistry teacher with a quick question about entropy, which may be only one of semantics - I am hoping you might be able to help. . I think the problem boils down to if we consider all the energy in a system (E=mc2), can all that be turned into work? The details are this: In discussing entropy, the isothermal, free expansion of a gas into a vacuum is an often used example (q=0,w=0). After the gas has expanded numerous texts and web sites (an MIT web site in this case) explains that " some ability to do work has been lost" and that "the property that is used to measure the change in ability to get work out of a system (delta)T is the entropy."

Crystalline Metal Versus Metallic Glass and Conduction Crystalline Metal Versus Metallic Glass and Conduction Name: Marilyn Status: student Grade: 12 Country: USA Date: Fall 2011 Question: Which will have a better electrical conductivity, a crystalline metal or a metallic glass. Replies: Hi Marilyn, I was unable to find any direct data on electrical conductivity of amorphous metals, however there is data that appears to suggest the conductivity of amorphous metal is slightly worse than that of the same metal in crystalline form. It is known that amorphous metals have lower thermal conductivity than their crystalline forms, and in most cases decreased thermal conductivity is accompanied by decreased electrical conductivity. It is also known that as a metal's crystal structure becomes finer and more disorganized, electrical conductivity decreases somewhat. An example of this is the case of copper. Annealed copper, which has fewer, larger crystals, has slightly better electrical conductivity than work-hardened copper. Work-hardening copper breaks up the large crystals into much smaller, and more disorganized ones, resulting in its electrical conductivity being slightly reduced. Carrying this to it's logical end, an infinitely small and highly disordered crystal structure would appear much like a metallic glass. From this, therefore, one can surmise that a true amorphous metal will indeed have slightly poorer electrical conductivity than normal crystalline metal of the same type.

Photon Mass and Gravitation Photon Mass and Gravitation Name: James Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: MD Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: A sun has mass. This mass causes it to collapse on itself, forming heavier and heavier elements. Eventually the sun will collapse and cause a black hole to form. The Earth also has a mass and gravity also tries to make the Earth collapse like the sun. The Earth however does not collapse like the sun. This occurs because of the quantum mechanical phenomenon known as Pauli's exclusion principle. The Pauli exclusion principle says that two electrons with the same spin state cannot occupy the same quantum orbital state. This prevents the earth from collapsing on itself. A photon has energy using Plank's E=hf equation. Using Einstein's E=mc^2 equation a photon has a relative mass. This relative mass will produce a force known as gravity. This force is explained through Einstein's Theory of General Relativity. Now why does a photon not collapse like the earth? Is there a principle similar to Pauli's exclusion principle that keeps a photon from collapsing? My question is what force combats the gravity of a photon, so that the photon does not collapse on itself and from a black hole like the sun.

Mica, Gypsum, and Hardness Mica, Gypsum, and Hardness Name: Melissa Status: educator Grade: 4 Location: NC Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: I have a question regarding the hardness of mica and gypsum. Gypsum is a 2 on Moh's hardness scale and mica is somewhere between a 2 and 3. However, mica breaks and scratches very easily by a penny, paper clip, and fingernail and gypsum does not. What is a good way to explain to my students how gypsum is still "softer" on the scale? Obviously, mica breaks apart very easily. Replies: Melissa, Mineral hardness and mineral cleavage are separate issues. Mineral hardness is a measure of a mineral's ability to resist being scratched. Mineral cleavage is the ability for a mineral to split along weakly-bonded atomic planes. The micas have one good mineral cleavage. That is, mica splits nicely in along one plane. Halite (table salt), on the other hand, splits equally well in three orthogonal directions (that is, along three planes, each of which is at 90 degrees to the others). Shake out some table salt on an overhead projector and have the students walk up to the screen. They will see that all salt has cubic mineral cleavage. I don't know how much snow you get in North Carolina, but if you get some salt that is used to melt ice you will note that it too has cubic cleavage. When you break up the large salt crystals you will observe that they break into smaller cubes. When you break the mica, it will break into smaller sheets.

Free Falling Elevator and Floating Free Falling Elevator and Floating Name: Kevin B. Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: CA Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: I had a debate with my uncle about what would happen to a person in a free falling elevator. I asked him if the person would float. My uncle said no. He pointed out that a ball would not float if put on the floor of the elevator and the cable was cut, so why would a person? To see what would happen to a ball in a free falling elevator, I put a ball on a folder (the folder representing the floor of an elevator), and I dropped the folder with the ball. The ball stayed on top of the folder as they both fell to the ground. This indicated that what my uncle said about a ball staying on the floor of a free falling elevator was likely correct. However, when I researched the subject on the Internet, I came across many articles that said that a person would float in a free falling elevator. So I am a bit confused. Why would a person float but a ball would not? So my question is: 1) Would a person stand on the floor of a free falling elevator or would he float above the floor in a free falling elevator? 2) If the person would stand on the floor of a free falling elevator, please explain why. If the person would float above the floor, please explain why.

Heat Shield and 120 000 Foot Fall Heat Shield and 120 000 Foot Fall Name: John Status: educator Grade: 9-12 Location: OK Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: My classes and I have been looking at the Red Bull/Stratos home page and discussing Felix Baumgartner's future attempt to free fall from 120,000 feet. Why is the build up of heat upon reentry not an issue, if he is expected to reach 700 plus miles per hour? Replies: It might be, but I am sure that has been taken into account. Here are some procedures that might be keep him from turning into a crisp. At high altitude the density of air is low so there would little resistance to avoid heating. I presume he will be outfitted with a heat resistant suit of some sort and a number of sensors to monitor temperature, pressure, and descent speed. As atmospheric pressure increases, his "jump" gear is probably fitted with devices to slow the rate of descent. I would guess the devices would be more complicated than a simple parachute, at least at high rates of fall, but some sort of "parachute" nonetheless to control his descent rate. In addition, I would guess he also has some sort of controllers to keep him from tumbling. At the high speed tumbling could be a worse issue than just speed. With some sort of foils (wings??) he could possibly move around in circles and glide at the same altitude. This would give him time to dissipate the heat. Basically, he would be a glider, dropping in a controlled spiral. He could control the "pitch" of the screw trajectory. Of course, some sort of breathing apparatus would have to be part of his apparatus.

January 25, 2013 In this 1939 photo, Eric and Margaret Lawrence are sitting inside the tank of something called the 60-inch cyclotron -- a machine invented by their father, Ernest Lawrence. The cyclotron is a unique circular particle accelerator, which Lawrence himself referred to as a "proton merry-go-round." In reality, the cyclotron specialized in smashing atoms. Fun facts: this cyclotron contains a magnet that weighs 220 tons, and experiments conducted on this very machine led to the discovery of plutonium and Nobel Prizes for researchers Glenn Seaborg and Melvin Calvin. Ernest Lawrence passed away in 1958 -- just 23 days later, the Regents of the University of California voted to rename two of the university's nuclear research sites: Lawrence Livermore and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories. | Photo courtesy of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

NEWTON, Ask a Scientist at Argonne National Labs

Stellar Motion Reference Point Stellar Motion Reference Point Name: Dylan Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: CA Country: USA Date: Spring 2012 Question: How can scientists conclude that the Sun and other Stars move? I know it seems pretty simple, but what would they use as a reference point? Replies: There are sophisticated methods but a simple one that works for the Sun, Moon and Planets is to observe their motion against the background of stars that do not appear to move at all. High resolution observation of the reference background of stars show that they too move with respect to other stars, but that is a much smaller motion. Vince Calder Dylan, You are right in thinking that this is not as straight-forward as it sounds. If you are in a car traveling at 55 miles per hour and alongside you is another car traveling at 55 - it would appear that both of you are not moving - unless you can reference the sidewalk or electrical poles by the side of the road. ... and that is the key here, if you compare an object to yourself - say you and a friend are both on skateboards - and you observe your friend as moving, you can only say that your friend is moving relative to your position. In reality, you could be moving and your friend is not, you are stationary and your friend is moving, or both of you are moving at different speeds. What Einstein said about this is that it does not matter which of these conditions you accept, the math and the conclusions about motions and positions will still come out the same. So one way to answer your question is to say, we can just use Earth as the reference point (say that it is not moving) and any observed motion of other objects are a function of their motion relative to Earth - whatever conclusions we derive would still be the same as if the other objects were not moving and only Earth was moving.

We want to establish the Physical, Chemical and Nano Sciences Center and Sandia National Laboratories as major players in developing the interdisciplinary science of complex, far-from-equilibrium, self-assembling systems. These are systems that self-assemble highly organized states dynamically, across multiple length scales, through the constant flow-through and consumption of energy and material. Such driven systems, in contrast to equilibrated systems, can, in special cases, develop the key capability of representing, maintaining and modifying information. Such systems also typically bridge multiple length scales by developing

NATIONAL GEODATABASE OF TIDAL STREAM POWER RESOURCE IN USA  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A geodatabase of tidal constituents is developed to present the regional assessment of tidal stream power resource in the USA. Tidal currents are numerically modeled with the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) and calibrated with the available measurements of tidal current speeds and water level surfaces. The performance of the numerical model in predicting the tidal currents and water levels is assessed by an independent validation. The geodatabase is published on a public domain via a spatial database engine with interactive tools to select, query and download the data. Regions with the maximum average kinetic power density exceeding 500 W/m2 (corresponding to a current speed of ~1 m/s), total surface area larger than 0.5 km2 and depth greater than 5 m are defined as hotspots and documented. The regional assessment indicates that the state of Alaska (AK) has the largest number of locations with considerably high kinetic power density, followed by, Maine (ME), Washington (WA), Oregon (OR), California (CA), New Hampshire (NH), Massachusetts (MA), New York (NY), New Jersey (NJ), North and South Carolina (NC, SC), Georgia (GA), and Florida (FL).

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This project placed an experienced technology entrepreneur at Oak Ridge National Lab, one of DOEâ??s premier laboratories undertaking cutting edge research in a variety of fields, including energy technologies. With the goal of accelerating the commercialization of advanced energy technologies, the task was to review available technologies at the lab and identify those that qualify for licensing and commercialization by a private startup company, backed by private venture capital. During the project, more than 1,500 inventions filed at the lab were reviewed over a 1 year period; a successively smaller number was selected for more detailed review, ultimately resulting in five, and then 1 technology, being reviewed for immediate commercialization. The chosen technology, consisting in computational chemistry based approached to optimization of enzymes, was tested in lab experiments, paid for by funds raised by ORNL for the purpose of proving out the effectiveness of the technology and readiness for commercialization. The experiments proved out that the technology worked however itâ??s performance proved not yet mature enough to qualify for private venture capital funded commercialization in a high tech startup. As a consequence, the project did not result in a new startup company being formed, as originally intended.

for Studying the Chemical Transformations of for Studying the Chemical Transformations of Organic Particles Kevin Wilson Chemical Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA Molecular weight growth and decomposition chemistries play important roles in the transformation of particles from soot formation to atmospheric aerosol oxidation. Understanding these complex reaction pathways requires novel methods of analyzing particle phase hydrocarbons. We are developing a suite of synchrotron-based tools to provide better insights into the molecular composition, isomer distribution, and elemental composition of complex hydrocarbon mixtures, aimed at developing simple yet realistic descriptions of molecular weight growth and decomposition that occur during a heterogeneous reaction.

A Survey of LTR Program Industry Partner Satisfaction at Oak Ridge National Lab  

SciTech Connect

As a US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science (SC) National Laboratory, the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) participates in the Laboratory Technology Research (LTR) Program. The mission of the LTR Program is to advance science and technology, in support of DOE missions, toward innovative applications through cost-shared partnerships with the private sector. The benefits to industry participants include gaining access to world-class researchers and facilities, while the benefits to the ORNL researchers includes leveraging the declining government-provided funds. Thus, the importance placed upon industry partner satisfaction is large, especially if the LTR Program is to be sustained during episodes of government budget constraints. Realizing the critical nature of partner satisfaction, in 1998 the DOE-SC National Laboratories surveyed industrial partners to assess their satisfaction with the cooperative research projects in which they were involved. This paper will describe the survey methodology including development of the questionnaire and a summary of the responses (particularly those which are germane to the ORNL.) The results of the survey will be categorized as follows: (1) Desire to partner again with ORNL; (2) Benefits obtained by the company from the partnership; and (3) LTR Program ratings assigned in 11 key areas (i.e., quality of work, expertise, protection of intellectual property, value, facilities, understanding company needs, reliability of funding, schedule responsiveness, project management, contract negotiation, and contract administration.) More information about the LTR Program can be found at http://www.er.doe.gov/production/octr/aentr/aeptrnr.html.

In Defense of the National Labs and Big-Budget Science  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The purpose of this paper is to present the unofficial and unsanctioned opinions of a Visiting Scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on the values of LLNL and the other National Labs. The basic founding value and goal of the National Labs is big-budget scientific research, along with smaller-budget scientific research that cannot easily be done elsewhere. The most important example in the latter category is classified defense-related research. The historical guiding light here is the Manhattan Project. This endeavor was unique in human history, and might remain so. The scientific expertise and wealth of an entire nation was tapped in a project that was huge beyond reckoning, with no advance guarantee of success. It was in many respects a clash of scientific titans, with a large supporting cast, collaborating toward a single well-defined goal. Never had scientists received so much respect, so much money, and so much intellectual freedom to pursue scientific progress. And never was the gap between theory and implementation so rapidly narrowed, with results that changed the world, completely. Enormous resources are spent at the national or international level on large-scale scientific projects. LLNL has the most powerful computer in the world, Blue Gene/L. (Oops, Los Alamos just seized the title with Roadrunner; such titles regularly change hands.) LLNL also has the largest laser in the world, the National Ignition Facility (NIF). Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) has the most powerful microscope in the world. Not only is it beyond the resources of most large corporations to make such expenditures, but the risk exceeds the possible rewards for those corporations that could. Nor can most small countries afford to finance large scientific projects, and not even the richest can afford largess, especially if Congress is under major budget pressure. Some big-budget research efforts are funded by international consortiums, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, and the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor (ITER) in Cadarache, France, a magnetic-confinement fusion research project. The postWWII histories of particle and fusion physics contain remarkable examples of both international competition, with an emphasis on secrecy, and international cooperation, with an emphasis on shared knowledge and resources. Initiatives to share sometimes came from surprising directions. Most large-scale scientific projects have potential defense applications. NIF certainly does; it is primarily designed to create small-scale fusion explosions. Blue Gene/L operates in part in service to NIF, and in part to various defense projects. The most important defense projects include stewardship of the national nuclear weapons stockpile, and the proposed redesign and replacement of those weapons with fewer, safer, more reliable, longer-lived, and less apocalyptic warheads. Many well-meaning people will consider the optimal lifetime of a nuclear weapon to be zero, but most thoughtful people, when asked how much longer they think this nation will require them, will ask for some time to think. NIF is also designed to create exothermic small-scale fusion explosions. The malapropos 'exothermic' here is a convenience to cover a profusion of complexities, but the basic idea is that the explosions will create more recoverable energy than was used to create them. One can hope that the primary future benefits of success for NIF will be in cost-effective generation of electrical power through controlled small-scale fusion reactions, rather than in improved large-scale fusion explosions. Blue Gene/L also services climate research, genomic research, materials research, and a myriad of other computational problems that become more feasible, reliable, and precise the larger the number of computational nodes employed. Blue Gene/L has to be sited within a security complex for obvious reasons, but its value extends to the nation and the world. There is a duality here between large-scale scientific research machines and the supercomputers used

USA National Phenology Network: Plant and Animal Life-Cycle Data Related to Climate Change  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

Phenology refers to recurring plant and animal life cycle stages, such as leafing and flowering, maturation of agricultural plants, emergence of insects, and migration of birds. It is also the study of these recurring plant and animal life cycle stages, especially their timing and relationships with weather and climate. Phenology affects nearly all aspects of the environment, including the abundance and diversity of organisms, their interactions with one another, their functions in food webs, and their seasonable behavior, and global-scale cycles of water, carbon, and other chemical elements. Phenology records can help us understand plant and animal responses to climate change; it is a key indicator. The USA-NPN brings together citizen scientists, government agencies, non-profit groups, educators, and students of all ages to monitor the impacts of climate change on plants and animals in the United States. The network harnesses the power of people and the Internet to collect and share information, providing researchers with far more data than they could collect alone.[Extracts copied from the USA-NPN home page and from http://www.usanpn.org/about].

US Department of Energy National Lab Activities in Marine Hydrokinetics: Machine Performance Testing  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) technology performance testing in the laboratory and field supports the US Department of Energy s MHK program goals to advance the technology readiness levels of MHK machines, to ensure environmentally responsible designs, to identify key cost drivers, and to reduce the cost of energy of MHK technologies. Laboratory testing results from scaled model machine testing at the University of Minnesota s St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) main channel flume are presented, including simultaneous machine power and inflow measurements for a 1:10 scale three-bladed axial flow turbine used to assess machine performance in turbulent flows, and detailed measurements of inflow and wake flow velocity and turbulence, including the assessment of the effects of large energetic organized vortex shedding on machine performance and wake turbulence downstream. Scaled laboratory testing provides accurate data sets for near- and far-field hydrodynamic models, and useful information on technology and environmental readiness levels before full-scale testing and demonstration in open water. This study validated turbine performance for a technology in order to advance its technology readiness level. Synchronized ADV measurements to calculate spatio-temporal characteristics of turbulence supported model development of the inflow turbulence model, Hydro-TurbSim, developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to evaluate unsteady loading on MHK machines. Wake flow measurements supported model development of the far-field model, SNL-EFDC, developed by Sandia National Laboratory (SNL) to optimize spacing for MHK machine arrays.

Remediation of the Melton Valley Watershed at Oak Ridge National Lab: An Accelerated Closure Success Story  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Melton Valley (MV) Watershed at the U. S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) encompasses approximately 430 hectares (1062 acres). Historic operations at ORNL produced a diverse legacy of contaminated facilities and waste disposal areas in the valley. In addition, from 1955 to 1963, ORNL served as a major disposal site for wastes from over 50 off-site government-sponsored installations, research institutions, and other isotope users. Contaminated areas in the watershed included burial grounds, landfills, underground tanks, surface impoundments, liquid disposal pits/trenches, hydro-fracture wells, leak and spill sites, inactive surface structures, and contaminated soil and sediment. Remediation of the watershed in accordance with the requirements specified in the Melton Valley Record of Decision (ROD) for Interim Actions in Melton Valley, which estimated that remedial actions specified in the ROD would occur over a period of 14 years, with completion by FY 2014. Under the terms of the Accelerated Closure Contract between DOE and its contractor, Bechtel Jacobs Company, LLC, the work was subdivided into 14 separate sub-projects which were completed between August 2001 and September 2006, 8 years ahead of the original schedule.

Building on and spinning off: Sandia National Labs` creation of sensors for Vietnam  

SciTech Connect

This paper discusses Sandia National Laboratories` development of new technologies for use in the Vietnam War - specifically the seismic sensors deployed to detect troop and vehicle movement - first along the Ho Chi Minh Trail and later in perimeter defense for American military encampments in South Vietnam. Although the sensor story is a small one, it is interesting because it dovetails nicely with our understanding of the war in Vietnam and its frustrations; of the creation of new technologies for war and American enthusiasm for that technology; and of a technological military and the organizational research and a m am development structure created to support it. Within the defense establishment, the sensors were proposed within the context of a larger concept - that of a barrier to prevent the infiltration of troops and supplies from North Vietnam to the South. All of the discussion of the best way to fight in Vietnam is couched in the perception that this was a different kind of war than America was used to fighting. The emphasis was on countering the problems posed by guerrilla/revolutionary warfare and eventually by the apparent constraints of being involved in a military action, not an outright war. The American response was to find the right technology to do the job - to control the war by applying a technological tincture to its wounds and to make the war familiar and fightable on American terms. And, when doubts were raised about the effectiveness of applying existing technologies (namely, the bombing of North Vietnam and Laos), the doubters turned to new technologies. The sensors that were developed for use in Vietnam were a direct product of this sort of thinking - on the part of the engineers at Sandia who created the sensors, the civilian scientific advisors who recommended them, and, ultimately, the soldiers in the field who had to use them.

Successful remediation of four uranium calibration pits at Technical Area II, Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The first remediation of an Environmental Restoration (ER) Project site at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) was successfully conducted in May and June 1994 at Technical Area II. The removal action involved four Uranium Calibration Pits (UCPs) filled with radioactive or hazardous materials. The concrete culvert pits were used to test and calibrate borehole radiometric logging tools for uranium exploration. The removal action consisted of excavating and containerizing the pit contents and contaminated soil beneath the culverts, removing the four culverts, and backfilling the excavation. Each UCP removal had unique complexities. Sixty 208-L drums of solid radioactive waste and eight 208-L drums of liquid hazardous waste were generated during the VCM. Two of the concrete culverts will be disposed as radioactive waste and two as solid waste. Uranium-238 was detected in UCP-2 ore material at 746 pci/g, and at 59 pci/g in UCP-1 silica sand. UCP-4 was empty; sludge from UCP-3 contained 122 mg/L (ppm) chromium.

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) in Newport News, Virginia, USA, is one of ten national laboratories under the aegis of the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). It is managed and operated by Jefferson Science Associates, LLC. The primary facility at Jefferson Lab is the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) as shown in an aerial photograph in Figure 1. Jefferson Lab was created in 1984 as CEBAF and started operations for physics in 1995. The accelerator uses superconducting radio-frequency (srf) techniques to generate high-quality beams of electrons with high-intensity, well-controlled polarization. The technology has enabled ancillary facilities to be created. The CEBAF facility is used by an international user community of more than 1200 physicists for a program of exploration and study of nuclear, hadronic matter, the strong interaction and quantum chromodynamics. Additionally, the exceptional quality of the beams facilitates studies of the fundamental symmetries of nature, which complement those of atomic physics on the one hand and of high-energy particle physics on the other. The facility is in the midst of a project to double the energy of the facility and to enhance and expand its experimental facilities. Studies are also pursued with a Free-Electron Laser produced by an energy-recovering linear accelerator.

National electrical code changes for 1996 and USA participation in International Energy Agency activities related to photovoltaics safety and grid interconnection  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

As photovoltaic (PV) systems gain more acceptance in utility-interactive applications throughout the world, many organizations are placing increasingly higher priorities on writing guidelines, codes and standards. These guidelines and codes are being written to improve safety, installation, acceptance, listing or certification of the PV components or systems. Sandia National Laboratories` PV System Applications Department is working closely with the PV industry to address issues that are associated with fire and personnel safety and with National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements. Additionally, the United States has agreed to participate in two of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Annexes (topical tasks) of the Implementing Agreement for a Cooperative Programme on Photovoltaic Power Systems. This paper describes events and activities associated with the NEC and the IEA that are being led by Sandia National Laboratories with broad participation by the US PV industry.

Twelve Months of Air Quality Monitoring at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, Southwestern Rural Nevada, U.S.A (EMSI April 2007)  

SciTech Connect

The one year of air quality monitoring data collected at the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) was the final part of the air quality "Scoping Studies" for the Environmental Monitoring Systems Initiative (EMSI) in southern and central Nevada. The objective of monitoring at Ash Meadows was to examine aerosol and meteorological data, seasonal trends in aerosol and meteorological parameters as well as to examine evidence for long distance transport of some constituents. The 9,307 hectare refuge supports more than 50 springs and 24 endemic species, including the only population of the federally listed endangered Devils Hole pupfish (Cyprinodon diabolis) (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 1990). Ash Meadows NWR is located in a Class II air quality area, and the aerosol measurements collected with this study are compared to those of Interagency Monitoring of Protected Visual Environments (IMPROVE) sites. Measurements taken at Ash Meadows NWR over a period of 12 months provide new baseline air quality and meteorological information for rural southwestern Nevada, specifically Nye County and the Amargosa Valley.

Sept. 21, 2012 Sept. 21, 2012 Sandia's Explosives Technology Group discovers key detonation behavior in common explosive NOT SO BIG BANG - Alex Tappan (left) and Rob Knepper (both 2554) watch the detonation of a Sandia critical thickness experiment. The experiment typically uses less explosive material than the size of one-tenth of an aspirin tablet to determine small-scale detonation properties. The bench-top experiment is so small, researchers can stand next to the firing chamber with eye and ear protection. (Photo by Randy Montoya) by Sue Major Holmes The explosive PETN (pentaerythritol tetranitrate) has been around for a century and is used by everyone from miners to the military, but it took new research by Sandia to begin to discover key mechanisms behind what causes it to fail at very small scales.

November 29, 2013 November 29, 2013 Smaller asteroids, bigger problems The asteroid that fell to earth near Chelyabinsk, Russia, gave scientists new insights into the risks of smaller asteroid impacts. (Simulation by Mark Boslough; rendering by Brad Carvey) by Jim Danneskiold and Stephanie Holinka Once in a lifetime, a physicist may get a chance to test his theories and simulations in a real-life event that changes the course of his scientific life. But rarely does that opportunity literally fall from the sky. That's the impact of the Feb. 15 asteroid that burst over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk on Sandia physicist Mark Boslough (1442), subject of a TV documentary that aired this month and co-author of a recent cover story in Nature about the asteroid fireball that injured about 1,500 people and
