Trivia Tuesday: Cray X-MP supercomputers powered a theme park full of dinosaurs in the 1990 Michael Crichton novel "Jurassic Park." How many times more floating-point operations per second is the Blue Gene/Q supercomputer at Argonne capable of than the Cray XM-P?
We are pleased to announce that Niala Boodhoo, host of WBEZ Radio Chicago's The Afternoon Shift, will serve as guest emcee for Argonne's first-ever "Energy Slam" on April 3. Reserve your spot today for this free event: http://1.usa.gov/InVwer

A peek behind the scenes in labs across the country searching for the chemistry of the next big battery:
Chemists are reinventing rechargeable cells to drive down costs and boost capacity.
It’s alive! Scientists combine bacteria with liquid crystals to create "living liquid crystals" (check out the videos!)
Argonne scientists have grown bacteria in a liquid crystal medium and observed unique patterns of bacterial motion.
What will Chicago's new Digital Manufacturing Lab look like? The Sun-Times looks at the national lab system as a possible model.
The best way to get a hint of what to expect in Chicago when tens of thousands of square feet on Goose Island transform into the Digital Lab is to look at the dozens of national labs already around the country.
You may know her as a cast member of CBS' "Survivor: Cagayan," but on April 3, Argonne nuclear engineer J'Tia Taylor will compete in a different type of competition. Register to attend: http://1.usa.gov/InVwer

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.
