Future Tours in the Works
Sea Ray Boats (all tours currently suspended due to Covid-19))
Coordination in progress to set date and time.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (on hold pending transportation issue)
This promises to be a special tour with the new supercomputer included. This is our first tour at ORNL since tours there were suspended last year.
ORNL Everest Upgrade (on hold pending transportation issue)
For nearly ten years, researchers have seen their large datasets as images on the screens in the EVEREST room. With the new upgrade, scientists will be better able to visualize their data to make discoveries. The renovations include a 37 mega pixel stereoscopic wall made up of 18 individual display monitors. Stereoscopy creates depth in an image for a 3D effect. While the old system could show movies, high-resolution images, and some live applications, the new system’s 3D capabilities will allow for greater detail in data visualization. Read more…Here.
