Recent Measurement Testing Fundamental Symmetry

A short video explaining a new measurement from the +ALICE Experiment  just published in +Nature Physics .

"Our direct measurement of the mass-over-charge differences confirms CPT invariance to an unprecedented precision in the sector of light nuclei."

The +ALICE Experiment ​ makes a precise comparison of light nuclei and antinuclei

The result, published today in Nature Physics, confirms a fundamental symmetry of nature to an unprecedented precision for light nuclei

Janet Echelman is an artist who builds some of the most beautiful and permanent outdoor installations seen around the world. When she was first approached to create a permanent structure in Madrid, Spain, she was challenged to create very large structural forms (think skyscraper) using her preferred medium, soft fabric.  In order to tackle the twin challenges of precise shape and gentle movement,  she turned to HPC. Her team created a software that would allow her to extrude the complex net forms of her art and model them with gravity and movement before creating the actual piece.

How to Make Quark Soup

The Quark Gluon Plasma is the hottest matter yet observed (250,000x hotter than the center of the sun) and the most ideally flowing fluid yet observed.

SC14 understands why HPC matters

A beautiful promo explains in simple terms just why HPC matters.
"High performance computing is solving some of the hardest problems in the world. But it's also at your local supermarket, under the hood of your car, and steering your investments....  It's finding signals in the noise."

Waterfall at the ORNL Visitor Center

This artificial waterfall provides aeration needed to support the ecosystem of the pond next to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Visitor Center. In the background and surrounding the pond are a variety of native plants.
