'Jeopardy' puts Lab's science in the spotlight

'Jeopardy' puts Lab's science in the spotlight
LLNL Newsline - 03/04/2015

The clue: This institution is where you will discover the "Science of Security."

The answer: What is Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory?

The Laboratory will be featured in an entire category of clues on the TV game show "Jeopardy," Monday, March 9. The show airs at 7 p.m. on the ABC network.

Called the "Science of Security," the category features basic science questions that tie into Laboratory facilities and programs, among them laser science and the National Ignition Facility, high performance computing and Sequoia, astrophysics and the GeMINI planet imager, bioscience and the Microbial Detection Array and satellite technology and the Lab's work to track them for traffic control.

Each clue will be read during a video clip featuring various locations about the Lab. A film crew from "Jeopardy" came to the Lab last June to shoot clips for the category.

A video clip will be posted in a future edition of Newsline and in the Daily Clips.

Why should LLNL guards respond to an active shooter when they don't have a safety package for $1000.

If they aren't stealing classified information or SNM, the guards are not required by DOE/NNSA to respond. They will call police.

BTW, do we get residuals? - we can use the money.

I heard Terry Wallace and Team are sending samples of Kiddy Litter to NIF for testing? It's fusion baby!

Kitty Litter and the high-foot drive are an unbeatable combination. I smell a Nobel here.

the lab is and always will be a top-down organization. as such, blame rests with management.

So I guess that for organizations that are "top-down," i.e., all of them, workers are never to blame for anything. How convenient for them.
