Nanos Hands In Los Alamos Resignation

The now-former director of the nuclear laboratory departs after two years on the job and will be replaced on an interim basis.

Robert Kuckuck takes over as interim manager, a title he should carry until September of this year.

G. Peter Nanos took the job in January of 2003. At the time the lab was plagued with instances of equipment theft, poor fiscal oversight, and other problems.

The worst incident came last summer. Two hard disks containing reams of classified material vanished from the lab.

All classified work came to a halt while an investigation attempted to find the missing disks. After seven months and a loss of potentially over $360 million USD, it was found the disks weren't missing. Instead, they never existed in the first place.

Mr. Nanos's departure doesn't seem to be having a negative impact on some lab staffers. As one posted anonymously to a blog about working life at the lab, "The corks are a poppin' tonight!"

The Los Alamos National Laboratory, located in northern New Mexico, was established in 1943. The University of California operates the lab under contract with the US Department of Energy.

Its primary focus has been on nuclear deterrence, originating from World War II and the development of the atom bombs that helped end the war in the pacific.
