High-speed fire footage reveals key insights for power plant safety

Sandia National Laboratories

Fire protection and optical engineers at Sandia National Laboratories are using high-speed cameras and advanced algorithms, imaging and analytic methods to understand these dangerous arc faults between two conductors, such as the high-voltage bus bars in a switchgear at a power plant. Flames in an arc fault experiment contain useful information that can help keep power plants operating safely.

Newswise: How the Nation’s Hydrogen Bomb Secrets Disappeared

How the Nation’s Hydrogen Bomb Secrets Disappeared

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Given a choice of items to lose on a train, a top-secret document detailing the newly developed hydrogen bomb should be on the bottom of the list. In January 1953, amid the Red Scare and the Korean War, that’s exactly what physicist John Archibald Wheeler lost. In the December 2019 issue of Physics Today, science historian Alex Wellerstein details the creation of the document and Wheeler’s day leading up to its mysterious loss.

U.S. Public Views on Climate and Energy

Pew Research Center

Majorities of Americans say the federal government is doing too little for key aspects of the environment. And most believe the U.S. should focus on development of alternative sources of energy over expansion of fossil fuels, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

Story tips from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, November 2019

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

ORNL and NREL took demonstrated a miniaturized gyroscope. ORNL created and tested new wireless charging designs. If humankind reaches Mars this century, an ORNL-developed experiment testing advanced materials for spacecraft may play a key role. ORNL and Georgia Tech found that critical interactions between microbes and peat moss break down under warming temperatures. ORNL and industry demonstrated that an additively manufactured hot stamping die can withstand up to 25,000 usage cycles.
