Great news for +Berkeley Lab!
 
We just cut the ribbon for #FLEXLab , the world’s most advanced #energyefficiency test bed. +Genentech is taking these energy efficiency technologies to the next level, using FLEXLab to test for user comfort and utility before breaking ground on its 250,000-square-foot building in South #SanFrancisco .

Billionaire #mathematician James Simons earned his PhD at 23, was cracking advanced codes for the +National Security Agency at 26, but was terrible at programming computers. http://nyti.ms/1lUdBAw

Great profile of the #MathforAmerica Chair & recently elected National Academy of Science member in +The New York Times | #STEM #Math

#ThrowbackThursday : In 1974, President Gerald Ford signed the Energy Reorganization Act, paving the way for the +U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) -- and +Berkeley Lab's @NERSC facility.

Working together for four decades, BES and NERSC have helped shed light on new solutions to our energy needs, from #materialsscience and #solarpower to #batterylife and #nanotechnology : http://1.usa.gov/1roVDxN

Looking sharp Chin! Great #tbt  
 
#throwbackthursday : In 2013, Chin Guok (3rd from left) accepts R&D 100 Award for +Energy Sciences Network (ESnet)'s OSCARS. This tool can automatically create end-to-end circuits, crossing multiple network domains. http://1.usa.gov/1iKan7w

#DidYouKnow : In 2010 (before OSCARS) ESnet engineers needed 10 hours of phone calls and about 100 emails over three months to do what one person can do in five minutes using OSCARS.

#ThrowbackThursday circa 1976: Any guesses what this is?

You can find the answer -- and lots of other great #HPC trivia -- on the +NERSC 40th anniversary webpage:

Women are grossly underrepresented in engineering & computer science careers, a fact that is attracting an increasing amount of attention & pledges to bridge the gender divide. But, how?

A great feature in Sunday's +San Francisco Chronicle suggests: "Don't Make Tech Pink." Details: http://bit.ly/1tgm4HV

Exciting news about the future of batteries from +NERSC  & +Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)http://1.usa.gov/1qaBCt1
 
Could cellphone and laptop #battery lifetimes be doubled, even tripled if researchers were able to tap into the power of certain multiply charged metal ions? Yes, according to a study out of +Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) that utilized #supercomputing‬ resources at +NERSC.

The key, they found, lies in using multiply charged metal ions that have a higher oxidation state than #lithium and figuring out how to keep them stable.

We go waaaayyyyy back: In 1981, +NERSC -- then known as the National Magnetic Fusion Energy Computer Center -- switched from phone lines to satellite for data transmission, doubling transmission capacity while cutting costs. First customer? +PrincetonPlasmaPhysicsLab

Why DMZs are good for scientific collaborations. Great story in +GCNtech! http://bit.ly/1iGnwyq

  #network #government #science #research  
 
"Because scientific data has the same security needs as any other government data, the question is how to provide the special conditions that scientists need to do their jobs, while at the same time making sure the data is sufficiently protected..." This is where #ScienceDMZ comes in. http://bit.ly/1iGnwyq - via +GCNtech

Introduction
Berkeley Lab's Computing Sciences organization researches, develops, and deploys new tools and technologies to advance research in such areas as global climate change, combustion, fusion energy, nanotechnology, biology, and astrophysics.

The Computing Sciences organization was created to advance computational science throughout the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science research programs. The organization includes:

The Computational Research Division (CRD)

CRD creates computational tools and techniques that enable scientific breakthroughs by conducting applied research and development in computer science, computational science, and applied mathematics. http://crd.lbl.gov/


The National Energy Research Scientific Research Computing (NERSC) Center

NERSC is home to some of the world’s most efficient supercomputers. This center is a leader in providing systems, services and expertise to advance computational science throughout the Department of Energy research community. http://www.nersc.gov/


The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet)

ESnet provides high-bandwidth, reliable connections to researchers at national laboratories, universities and other institutions, across the United States. These world-class connections provide the collaborative capabilities needed to address some of the world’s most important scientific challenges. http://www.es.net/
