Title: Science & Technology Review December 2005

Abstract

This month's issue has the following articles: (1) Helping NNSA Managers Chart the Future Stockpile--Commentary by Bruce T. Goodwin; (2) Modeling the Future--Livermore researchers have developed a computational tool that simulates the effects of changing demands on the nuclear weapons complex; (3) A Peculiar Burst of Stars--By combining computer simulations with optical and radio astronomical techniques, astrophysicists can better understand how stars form; (4) Exploring the Link between Diet and Cancer--Scientists combine experiments and simulations to demonstrate how food mutagens could promote hormone-sensitive cancers; and (5) When Lightning Strikes at Site 300--Electrical engineers are certifying that Livermore's Site 300 provides a safe work environment, even during a lightning storm.
