The State Game and Fish Department has resumed its stockings of bigger-than-average rainbow trout throughout Northern New Mexico. These fish will average more than 15 inches in size and provide anglers with a chance to catch a big trout they would not otherwise have.

LANL: Levitation Yields Better Neutron-lifetime Measurement … At Last, Potential Corrections Are Not Larger Than Uncertainties
Trapping ultracold neutrons and measuring their lifespans has been a successful project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory accelerator center, LANSCE. Here, part of the magnet array is shown, with the vacuum vessel end cap removed for magnetic field mapping, performed by Tennessee Technological University physics student Keegan Hoffman.

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Los Alamos Field Office is proposing upgrades to the Technical Area (TA) 72 Outdoor Live Fire Range at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), which will ensure that the Protective Force has the tactical training functionalities required to maintain proficient security and response capabilities.
This project is at LANL in the bottom of Sandia Canyon in TA-72. The proposed project will result in vegetation removal, added ground disturbance, and soil stabilization within the 100-year floodplain.

A partnership involving the University of Nebraska and Los Alamos National Laboratory will boost educational opportunities for students seeking careers in the biodefense field.
“You can develop solutions through partnerships. You can accomplish much more as a whole than by working alone,” said Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist and partnership coordinator Harshini Mukundan, Ph.D.
