DOE's Energy Sciences Network, or ESnet, is deploying four new high-speed transatlantic links, giving researchers at America's national laboratories and universities ultra-fast access to scientific data.
Scientists across the U.S. will soon have access to new, ultra high-speed network links spanning the Atlantic Ocean, thanks to a project currently underway to extend ESnet (the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Sciences Network) to London, Amsterdam and Geneva.
With the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants squaring off for the 2014 World Series, professional photographers at the games will rely on cameras that weigh about 3.5 pounds and can shoot up to 14 photos per second. When high-energy protons face off for head-on collisions at the Large Hadron Collider, physicists from Brookhaven Lab and 177 other institutions rely on the ATLAS detector, a "camera" weighing more than 15.4 million pounds that can snap 40 million "pictures" per second.
Scientists running the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful “atom smasher,” report the first evidence of a process that can be used to test the mechanism by which the recently discovered Higgs particle imparts mass to other fundamental particles.
In addition to serving as the U.S. host laboratory for the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, Brookhaven National Laboratory plays multiple roles in this massive international undertaking, ranging from construction and project management to data storage and distribution.
