The new Department of Energy Undersecretary for Nuclear Security and NNSA Administrator Lisa E. Gordon-Hagerty visited Los Alamos National Laboratory today to tour Laboratory facilities and address employees.
“The work that’s done at Los Alamos is critical to the nation’s nuclear security and central to our stockpile stewardship mission,” she said to a standing-room-only audience of employees. “Los Alamos was established to develop a scientific solution to win World War II, and it has remained a truly extraordinary place where cutting-edge science and engineering are deployed in service to the nation.”
Gordon-Hagerty was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in February. This was her first visit to the Laboratory as NNSA administrator.
