The Argonne-led "Array of Things" project is a network of interactive, modular sensor boxes around Chicago collecting real-time data on the city’s environment, infrastructure, and activity for research and public use. It has been nominated for a design award — which is voted on by the public — by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Check out the entries and vote! http://tinyurl.com/n6qd3x3

"They are the foundries of our future technologies, occupying an experimental niche that universities and the profit-driven private sector simply cannot match. National Lab facilities support research on everything from novel materials for lighter transportation vehicles to genomic tools that improve drought resistant crops, from studying the Ebola virus to finding cures for cancer, and much more." tinyurl.com/m4qpchx #NatLabDay
"Since its creation at the dawn of America's scientific preeminence, the National Lab System has not focused on making headlines but on making discoveries that serve the nation." tinyurl.com/m4qpchx #NatLabDay

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.
