 United States Department of Energy National Laboratories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The system of centralized national laboratories grew out of the massive scientific endeavors of World War II, in which new technologies such as radar, the computer, the proximity fuze, and the atomic bomb proved decisive for the Allied victory.
After the war and its scientific successes, the newly created Atomic Energy Commission took over the future of the wartime laboratories, extending their lives indefinitely (they were originally thought of as temporary creations).
The national laboratory system, administered first by the Atomic Energy Commission, then the Energy Research and Development Administration, and currently the Department of Energy, is one of the largest (if not the largest) scientific research systems in the world.

The Department of Energy (DOE) is charged with evaluating a site at Yucca Mountain in Nevada, and if the site is found suitable for such a repository and approved in accordance with the statutory procedures, obtaining a license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and then constructing and operating the facility.
The court concluded, however, that "DOE's current approach toward contractual remedies"-i.e., the Department's preliminary determination that the expected delay in its acceptance of SNF would be "[u]navoidable" within the meaning of Article IX-was inconsistent with the Indiana Michigan mandate.
The state petitioners argued that the court of appeals had erred in refusing to direct DOE to commence accepting SNF for disposal.
