Description:

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California is a government organization that produces the monthly Science & Technology Review in print and online. Its aim is to convey to the public its "scientific and technological accomplishments in support of national security and other national needs." Recent issues have featured articles such as "Narrow Uncertainties" about climate modeling and the importance of understanding the margin of error and "Return to Rongelap", an article about the Laboratory's efforts to minimize radiological exposure to natives returning to the island of Rongelap. The "Archives" go back to 1995, and are available for free on the website. Also in the "Archives" is a "Special Series" on "Albert Einstein", in commemoration of the 2005 World Year of Physics. The whole issue is devoted to articles about Einstein and his theories. U.S. residents interested in reading the Review eight times per year can subscribe to the print version of it, via the "Subscribe" link, and residents of any country can be alerted every time a new issue of the Review is posted to the web, via the same link.
