ESnet is deploying four new high-speed transatlantic links, giving researchers at America’s national labs and universities ultra-fast access to scientific data from European research sites.


National Medal of Science

Alexandre Chorin, a mathematician in CRD was awarded the National Medal of Science, the nation’s highest honor for achievement and leadership in advancing the fields of science and technology.


An Unusual Death for Ancient Stars

Certain primordial stars—those between 55,000 and 56,000 solar masses—may have died unusually. In death, these objects would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind.


3D Map of Adolescent Universe

Berkeley Lab researchers are part of team that recently demonstrated a novel technique for high-resolution universe maps that mimics medical CT scans.


Tracking Carbon Capture

Berkeley Lab researchers are creating microscopic pore-scale simulations could help scientists evaluate ways to store carbon dioxide produced by power plants, keeping it from contributing to global climate change.
