How Texas Lost the World’s Largest Super Collider

Texas Monthly October 21, 2013 By Trevor Quirk The Higgs boson, a particle that has shaped the theories of modern particle physics, was discovered at a super collider in Geneva. It was a hugely significant moment for Big Science, one that received a Nobel Prize earlier this year—and it should have been discovered in Texas. … Read moreHow Texas Lost the World’s Largest Super Collider

Fusion Energy Production by Deuterium Particle Injection

This visualization was created using simulations run on the supercomputers at the National Center of Computational Sciences and shows the expected operation of the ITER fusion reactor. This reactor is currently being built by a global coalition in Cadarache, France and is expected to begin the first experiments in 2020. To produce fusion reactions, the … Read moreFusion Energy Production by Deuterium Particle Injection
