While the director was in Washington talking about some new directions at the nuclear weapons labs Wednesday, Los Alamos National Laboratory managers were engaged in a plenary workshop developing an institutional strategy on energy security.
Coincidentally timed, the two events were nevertheless related. Both represented steps into a future that is becoming increasingly defined by smaller budgets for nuclear weapons.
LANL Director Michael Anastasio participated in a press conference in Washington, D.C., led by Thomas D’Agostino, administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration.
Also in the group were Thomas Hunter of Sandia National Laboratories, George H. Miller at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Stephen Younger, president and general manager of the company that operates the Nevada Test Site.
The group availability reintroduced NNSA’s “future vision” initiative signed with the commitment last month of Energy Secretary Samuel W. Bodman. The idea is to compensate for the anticipated reductions in the core nuclear weapons missions that have predominated at the four facilities, pivoting somewhat toward other sponsors to cover a broader spectrum of national security missions.
