Summary

Six months of uncertainty at Brookhaven National Laboratory ended last week, when Department of Energy managers chose a new contractor to operate the troubled facility in Upton, New York. The winning team, which takes over in January, is made up of the State University of New York, Stony Brook, and Battelle Memorial Institute. It now faces the challenge of mending fences with the lab's neighbors and resolving the fate of a major research reactor that local groups and New York politicians want to shut down permanently.
