"Five employees have been forced out of their jobs at the University of California-run Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico following months of scandals involving missing computer disks and unsafe lab practices," the San Francisco Chronicle (and others) report.Lab officials are still looking for two computer disks that may contain nuclear-weapons data. They noticed the disks' absence July 7.Since then, officials from Los Alamos, UC, the U.S. Energy Department and the FBI have turned the nuclear weapons lab upside down trying to find the disks. The search has been so frustrating that at one point they speculated that perhaps the disks never existed in the first place.
