Who gets to keep what...

Miscellaneous opinions...

Lookhead Martin will lose Sandia but will get Los Alamos. Boeing and UTexas will get
Sandia. The plan will be to turn Los Alamos into a Sandia like laboratory and turn
Sandia into a science like laboratory. Bechtel keeps Livermore from now on. All this has essentially been decided. The rational is this: Lookhead Martin messed up with the congressional scandal, however Sandia runs well.

LANL is run very badly so we should put Lookhead Martin in charge. Boeing has wanted in for some time so lets give them a chance. Bechtel has run LLNL perfectly so they get to keep it for as long as it wants.

Lockheed did an extremely poor job running its one small nuclear facility at Sandia, the Annular Core Research Reactor (ACRR), which been plagued with problems, for many years. I'm very skeptical that an aircraft company will be capable of running or restarting LANL's multi- (e.g. PF-4, Area G, RANT, WCRRF, WETF, CMR, RULOB upgrades, etc.) major nuclear facilities, including the accelerators (e.g. LANSCE, DAHRT).

It is not about running or not running something it is about keeping Lockheed paid.
In 10 years time when it is another failure they will go back to managing Sandia.

Facts here? Or just opinions?

You expect facts from an anonymous blog?

NSTec inhabitants believe this is to be true, over the vigorous objections of management, who apparently are as deaf as Croesus's unnamed son, because they claim they have heard nothing at all.

Here comes Mr. Show Me Proof, he must be another anal LANL guy.

It's not about "proof." It's about statements that are supported by evidence that all can agree is plausible. At least, if you honestly believe your "opinions" are valid, provide some reason why, that other people can pass judgement on, otherwise you are just another bar-stool blatherer, who nobody really listens to, and nobody really cares about.

Bechtel hasn't done a thing to improve LLNL operations. If UC loses LANL, UC has no reason to partner with Bechtel for LLNL. Expect that UC will create an LLC to operated LLNL that solely owned by UC.
