Introducing our new #Solar #Energy #Research Center, housing laboratories and offices devoted to photovoltaic and electro-chemical solar energy systems, designed to improve upon what plants already do and create new transportation fuels. 

+U.S. Department of Energy 
The Solar Energy Research Center (SERC), renamed to Chu Hall, opened today at Berkeley Lab. It will house laboratories and offices devoted to photovoltaic and electro-chemical solar energy systems designed to improve on what plants do and make transportation fuels. The building houses the lab’s programs in the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) and the Kavli Energy NanoSciences Institute . The three-story, nearly 40,000 square-foo...

Three questions with scientist Alex Kim. 

Question 1:
What is your role and what division do you work in?
I currently work as a staff scientist in the Physics Division. 

Question 2:
I was attempting to choose between philosophy and physics for my college major and was taking a class in each.  Philosophy was frustrating because there were no right answers, so I picked physics. Only later did I realize that physics too has no right answers.

Question 3:
I am currently working in cosmology using data from large surveys. I chose to work in cosmology because it addresses quantitatively and scientifically fundamental questions that were probably asked by the cavemen: what is the nature of the world around us?

This is perhaps the most daunting challenge facing climate and computer science experts — creating a supercomputer that can accurately model the future of the planet in a set of equations and how the forces of climate change will affect it. 
 
“Inexact computing works well for mobile applications where the consequence of choosing incorrectly is low. For consequential problems, where inexact results could cause a bridge to be misdesigned, or erroneous conclusions about the mechanics of climate, the inexactness is problematic,” - John Shalf, +Berkeley Lab via +The New York Times

The idea is simple, to solve the problem at a higher level, I mean the Sun systems modeling and then the model of the earth will be solved naturally.

Our researchers are in the hunt... Type la #supernovae  beware!
 
Using +NERSC supercomputers, astronomers confirm 1 of 2 competing theories about the birth of Type Ia supernovae. This could one day help researchers better understand dark energy. Details: http://ow.ly/NctgS

Ever wonder what an #aurora looks like from #space? Here's a little Monday inspiration for you, compliments of #NASA #Astronaut Terry Virts. "I wish I’d been two minutes quicker with the camera. We were right above this and surrounded by green!" Follow him on Twitter at @AstroTerry.
