The Trinity Test of July 16, 1945 was the first full-scale, real-world test of a nuclear weapon; with the new Trinity supercomputer Los Alamos National Laboratory's goal is to do this virtually, in 3D.

Trinity was the culmination of a fantastic effort of groundbreaking science and engineering by hundreds of men and women at Los Alamos and other Manhattan Project sites. It took them less than two years to change the world.

The Laboratory is marking the 70th anniversary of the Trinity Test because it not only ushered in the Nuclear Age, but with it the origin of today’s advanced supercomputing. We live in the Age of Supercomputers due in large part to nuclear weapons science here at Los Alamos.

National security science, and nuclear weapons science in particular, at Los Alamos National Laboratory have provided a key motivation for the evolution of large-scale scientific computing. Beginning with the Manhattan Project there has been a constant stream of increasingly significant, complex problems in nuclear weapons science whose timely solutions demand larger and faster computers. The relationship between national security science at Los Alamos and the evolution of computing is one of interdependence.

Today the United States and our P5+1 allies reached a historic deal with Iran that will block each of its four pathways to a nuclear weapon. 

Read the statement by Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, who was at the negotiating table to ensure the deal was based on hard science → http://1.usa.gov/1IXEyn5

Chris Deschene may be new to the Energy Department, but you could say he's been preparing for this job his whole life.

As the new director of the Office of Indian Energy, he brings decades of experience in politics, business, energy and tribal matters -- going all the way back to his childhood on a Navajo reservation in northern Arizona.

Read our Q&A with Chris to learn more about his backstory and the important work he's doing on energy development in tribal communities! http://1.usa.gov/1LUHYrz

This world record is a big deal. Check it out: 
 
Just setting a world record with our flagship accelerator, no big deal.
A key element in a particle-accelerator-based neutrino experiment is the power of the beam that gives birth to neutrinos: The more particles you can pack into that beam, the better your chance to see neutrinos interact in your detector. Today scientists announced that Fermilab has set a world ...

A new material design tested in experiments at SLAC could make low-cost solar panels far more efficient by greatly enhancing their ability to collect the sun’s energy and release it as electricity.
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science laboratory operated by Stanford University.

What is clean energy #manufacturing ? Think of it as taking manufacturing to the next level.

Some clean energy manufacturers use innovative technologies to improve products or processes by reducing #energy use and waste. Others use cutting-edge advanced manufacturing techniques like 3D printing to save time and energy or to build other clean energy technologies like wind turbines and solar panels.

Watch this video to learn more about clean energy manufacturing and how it's revolutionizing the way we build products and helping America #LeadonEnergy.

Small businesses are key to a healthy economy, and also to to developing the clean energy technologies needed to cut carbon pollution. But small businesses often lack the resources necessary to move their ideas out of the lab and into the marketplace. 

Today, the +U.S. Department of Energy announced a new public-private partnership which aims to bring next-generation clean energy technologies to the market faster than ever before. 

The partnership is called the Small Business Voucher Pilot, and it will connect clean energy innovators across the country with top-notch scientists, engineers, and world-class facilities at our national laboratories (like +Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Manufacturing Demonstration Facility featured in this photo).
