Very Fast and Very Small

As the +U.S. Department of Energy page and Energy.gov explore the science of the very fast and very small at the national laboratories, here is an image of the PHENIX Experiment at +Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Follow along ➣ This month on Energy.gov, we'll be exploring the science of the very fast and very small. From particle accelerators used to study the physical world to innovations in #nanotechnology  that could revolutionize industries, we'll examine the contributions of the Energy Department's National Labs to these important frontiers of #science .

Those colours can't be real, can they!?  The experimentalists would be over stimulated :)

Getting ready to collide gold ions at almost the speed of light

A technician at +Brookhaven National Laboratory adjusts kicker magnets which are part of the "stochastic cooling" process to greatly increase collision rates at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider.

To motivate people, managers should de-emphasize money and instead help their team find meaning in the work itself. Professor Jeffrey Pfeffer explores the addictive nature of money and why leaders should look for other ways to reward employee performance: http://stnfd.biz/st2oh

This assessment is wrong on so many levels.

#Edison  electrifies scientific supercomputing as the new DOE flagship supercomputer at +NERSC at +Berkeley Lab. Early results from acceptance tests explore the fate of sequestered CO2....
 
1 day 'til Thomas Edison's bday! 

Here's a look at how +Berkeley Lab researchers are using  #Edison at +NERSC  to model the effects of burying CO2 deep underground. This info will help us understand how much we can rely on geologic sequestration as a means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, which cause #climatechange.

Installation of the STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker

The new Heavy Flavor Tracker for the STAR Experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider measures particle tracks with very high resolution very close to the collision point, including those from decays of particles with either a charm or bottom quark.

An attempt at a QCD observation. Nice.

Beautiful fly-over and touchdown at +Stanford University.
 
Last weekend I took +Vic Gundotra's quadcopter to Stanford to try it out, here's a short video with the results...including a glorious "lawn mover" landing :-)
