Obama Chooses New DOE Head
President-elect Obama selected Steven Chu, the current director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, as his new administration's secretary of energy.
Chu shared the Nobel prize for physics in 1997 for figuring out how to trap and manipulate an atom. (The recipe: Chill the atom to near absolute zero. This slows it down enough to allow a laser light to grab it.)
