Soooo many great young minds competing today! These future #STEM professionals work hard and are great sports. We all win! Science Bowl
What metric prefix is equivalent to one trillion?? Frank C. Whiteley nails it! Competition is heating up! https://t.co/UE1valbTI6
The University of Chicago works closely with #Argonne, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and many others to install a new camera 4X heavier with 10X as many superconducting detectors as the camera it will replace in order to see light from the cosmic microwave background (CMB) - http://bit.ly/1QhNT8r
Scientists at the University of Chicago are hoping a new, highly sensitive camera they're developing for the South Pole Telescope will reveal new information about the early universe. The camera measures something that's nearly 14 billion years old: radiation left over from the Big Bang.
Happy Birthday to us! This week marks ten years since the founding of the ALCF. Thanks to our staff and users for being part of the journey.
Ultra sensitive camera at the heart of The University of Chicago, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and #argonne collaboration to uncover the physics of the early universe. - http://bit.ly/1WRSe7F
Drive a car 400 miles w/out a charge? How? Join the director of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) to find out how we will power the future during a reddit AMA at 1:00 Central today. Login now to ask him anything! - http://bit.ly/1nCW4G3

In this study, researchers highlight the importance of accurate representation of aerosol extinction and absorption profiles in regional climate simulations. ARM Climate Research Facility
1980. #Argonne and private industry partner to design the STARFIRE fusion power plant. Representing the latest thinking in commercially feasible #fusion power, STARFIRE designs featured a doughnut-shaped vacuum chamber seven meters (23 feet) in radius which would yield about 1,200,000 kilowatts of electric power, about the same power output as conventional nuclear fission and fossil power plants at the time. #TBT
Using Argonne Leadership Computing Facility's #Mira supercomputer, physicists from Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory uncovered a new understanding about electron behavior in edge plasma that could enhance predictions of and, ultimately, increase fusion power efficiency.
Transportation is changing, and #Argonne is leading
the way via fundamental and applied R&D. The new issue of Transforum takes on smart mobility... Driver assist? or Self driving? http://1.usa.gov/1O3sfDy

Linda Young, Director of Argonne's X-Ray Science Division, discusses upgrades to the lab's Advanced Photon Source.
Chemist Xiaoping Wang measures the stability of a platinum cathode electrocatalyst.
Nuclear engineer Laural Briggs reviews pressure distribution results from a 217-pin fuel assembly simulation. The simulation was computed by Argonne's Nek5000 large eddy simulation tool on the IBM Blue Gene/P Intrepid supercomputer.
Margaret Butler helps assemble the ORACLE computer with Oak Ridge National Laboratory engineer Rudolph Klein. In 1953, ORACLE was the worldâs fastest computer. Designed at Argonne, it was constructed at Oak Ridge. Butler was a pioneering scientist who spent her career at the forefront of computer science and nuclear energy. Her spirit, drive, and analytical talents led to a lifetime of scientific contributions during an era when women were a rarity in a major scientific setting.
Argonne's Lynn Trahey prepares lithium-oxygen batteries for controlled environment testing.
Argonne nanoscientist Elena Rozhkova is studying ways to enlist nanoparticles to treat brain cancer. This nano-bio technology may eventually provide an alternative form of therapy that targets only cancer cells and does not affect normal living tissue.
