Superfluid for Two Decades - Congratulations to our own cryogenics group, who 20 years ago today cooled liquid helium with the Central Helium Liquefier down to a superfluid during CEBAF accelerator operations for the first time. Superfluid liquid helium flows with zero viscosity around the accelerator components in our CEBAF accelerator, providing cryogenic cooling without jarring the components. You can learn more about our supercool refrigerators at the link.

Argonne National Laboratory, one of the +U.S. Department of Energy's foremost research centers, is offering a rare a glimpse into how scientists are using incredibly powerful computers to harness and capitalize on big data.

From smarter climate modeling to more efficient engineering R&D, the applications of big data visualization are varied and valuable.

Broadcasting live from the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, some of the world's leading figures in high-performance computing will give you a tour that will include a look-in on Mira, the fifth-fastest supercomputer in the world.

Submit a question during the field trip and it might get answered live by one of our experts!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Argonne National Laboratory. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

"Tools, Techniques and Technology Connections of Particle Physics"

Particle physics shares with other basic sciences the need to innovate, invent and develop tools, techniques and technologies to carry out its mission to explore the nature of matter, energy, space and time. The story of invention in particle physics and the interplay between different fields of science and society will be illustrated in this colloquium. At the same time, particle physics, and curiosity driven fundamental research in general, that could advance scientific discovery and accelerate the pace of innovation in an effective manner will be presented.
