Earlier this month, an international team of researchers used the Nova Petawatt’s successor, the National Ignition Facility's (NIF) petawatt-class Advanced Radiographic Capability (ARC), to begin developing an experimental platform that promises to turn Nova’s surprise discovery into a powerful new source of protons to study the extreme conditions deep inside the planets and the stars, enhance targeted tumor therapy and advance the frontiers of high energy density (HED) science.

The first-of-its-kind challenge educated students from Cal Poly's Multicultural Engineering Program on drone projects at the Lab and to consider drones as a possible career focus.

Cal Poly MEP is a retention program designed to graduate engineering students from the school’s underserved population, including first-generation and minority students, those from low-income backgrounds and transfer students.

Which is better for the environment: delivery trucks or drones?

Lawrence Livermore researchers flew test campaigns with two commercial drones and developed an estimate of the energy needed to deliver a package in various scenarios. They also considered how battery technology and drone design will improve over time.
