Our 5th annual Trick or Treat Trail is coming. Please bring your little ones for a great time!

Hotdogs and sausages will be provided by the Livermore Pleasanton Firefighters Foundation. Donations to the Foundation are used to sponsor community events.

Day 1 is in the books. We'll see you at the same time tomorrow and don't forget to check out the air races happening throughout the day! 🇺🇸 @RenoAirRaces


I'm proud to accept the @AirForceAssoc General Hoyt S. Vandenberg award for aerospace education. We were recognized for our youth aviation program. My thanks to our @CivilAirPatrol team for excellent performance!

The penultimate lesson on self-driving cars Wednesday at Squadron 156 in Livermore included training the cars on a racetrack that was created at Fire Station 17 in Dublin. Thank you @AlamedaCoFire for letting us visit and set up a racetrack in one of your bays!

How do we protect our planet from asteroid impacts? 🌎☄️ Meet the real-life scientists answering that question on the newest episode of “Inside the Lab”.

We’ve added a special section, NIF’s 10 Years of Dedication, tracing where we started, what we’ve accomplished, what’s next, and the people who are the driving force behind NIF. We’ll be adding more stories in the coming weeks #Lasers

50 years ago, American astronauts 👨‍🚀 took the first ever steps on the lunar surface. Today, we salute them and the countless men and women around the country who made it possible.

Researchers are harnessing the power of machine learning to make microcapsules with less labor. The bubble-like capsules are full of sodium bicarbonate (aka baking soda) and can absorb CO2 from the air. Learn more ➡ #microfluidics #carboncapture

Before walking the halls of NIF, Jeff Wisoff floated around the @Space_Station. He completed four space shuttle flights and conducted three spacewalks totaling almost 20 hours. Among his many duties, he was part of the test flight of an astronaut jet pack. 👨‍🚀🛰 #astronomymonth
