About Los Alamos
The Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) was founded during World War II as a facility to coordinate nuclear weapons. During this time, thousands of employees worked at LANL, including Nobel Prize winning scientists. After World War II, LANL continued as an important nuclear weapons research and development facility. After the Cold War, many studies at LANL shifted towards the humanities. Some examples include AIDS Vaccines, more accurate breast cancer tests, and cheaper bio-fuels. Even at this time, non-nuclear national security advancements are still under development at LANL. To this day, the laboratory is one of two US laboratories that study nuclear weapons.
