Fort Campbell, KY – With the objective before them and the enemy coming from all directions, they rush to the nearest firing position – killing three hostiles along the way and losing a teammate to an airstrike.

Video games such as this have become the modern day battlefield for many soldiers seeking solace from life in the military here in the Fort Campbell community.

Video games offer a chance for soldiers to retreat from everyday life and provide a chance for them to relax while engaging with artificial intelligence or with other players. (Photo by Sgt. Richard Daniels Jr.)

Los Alamos instrument to shine light on Mars habitability

 

LANL ChemCam will help unravel mysteries of Red Planet’s composition

Los Alamos National LaboratoryLos Alamos, NM – With the successful launch of the Mars Science Laboratory on Saturday, Los Alamos National Laboratory researchers and scientists from the French space institute IRAP are poised to begin focusing the energy of a million light bulbs on the surface of the Red Planet to help determine whether Mars was or is habitable.

The international team of space explorers that launched the Mars Science Laboratory last week is relying in part on an instrument originally developed at Los Alamos called ChemCam, which will use blasts of laser energy to remotely probe Mars’s surface. The robust ChemCam system is one of 10 instruments mounted on the mission’s rover vehicle, named Curiosity.

This artist concept features NASA's Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover, a mobile robot for investigating Mars' past or present ability to sustain microbial life.
