History section

I am going to try writing a history section for this article. Milton Beychok 17:19, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

I added a new section about funding, some wiki links, some references and some minor copy edits. I still plan to write a History section in the near future. Milton Beychok 04:36, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Finally got around to writing a History section. Milton Beychok 03:39, 2 March 2010 (UTC)


News story US revamps science, technology standard-setting efforts. Sandy Harris 06:05, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps there are indeed some changes needed in this article. I will look into it when I get some time. Thanks.Milton Beychok 15:57, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Updates on programs and labs

I've used the NIST website to update the program and lab descriptions. I've added brief descriptions of both, much edited versions of the NIST descriptions that seem to me to give the general idea without a ton of gobbledygook. John R. Brews 16:37, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, John. Milton Beychok 19:18, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
