Description: This 60th anniversary review of LANL features the Laboratory's three overarching thrusts: nuclear weapons stockpile stewardship--a decade-long effort to develop the scientific base to certify the US stockpile in the absence of nuclear testing; threat reduction--a historic mission that includes assuring nonproliferation of nuclear weapons, reducing the threat of biological and chemical attacks, and insuring homeland security; and finally, strategic investments in the science of the future--an ongoing program to foster new ideas and integrate them into practical solutions for national security, energy independence, and economic stability.
