This web page relates the history of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and is part of the LLNL's official website. The page explains how the lab was started and its mission: the physicists Edward Teller and Ernest Lawrence decided after the Soviet Union developed its first atomic bomb that the United States needed another laboratory for nuclear research. The website follows the events at Livermore starting in 1949 and outlines the key people and events in its formation as well as many of the projects that were worked on at the lab. It also contains a number of photographs associated with the lab and its work. The history described in the website runs from 1949 to 1998. It was originally published in the September 1998 issue of the laboratory's journal, Science and Technology Review.
