NNSA News:

Road improvements to several stretches of highways to and from Los Alamos National Laboratory will begin in about a month, following a $7 million contract award to Albuquerque Asphalt, Inc.

The road project is part of a $34.5 million settlement agreement between the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) and the U.S. Department of Energy following the February 2014 drum breach at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.

The Supplemental Environmental Projects agreement requires DOE to perform several safety and environmental improvements to support LANL operations.

LANL’s chief spokesman said Wednesday that overall, this year’s annual RCRA inspection by the State shows improvement in Lab performance from past years, as evidenced by fewer non-compliances.

  • ‘Spindoctors’ note that topological order, associated with quantum mechanics, also applies to classical material called artificial spin ice

Physicists have identified a new state of matter whose structural order operates by rules more aligned with quantum mechanics than standard thermodynamic theory. In a classical material called artificial spin ice, which in certain phases appears disordered, the material is actually ordered, but in a “topological” form.

“Our research shows for the first time that
