Event Description

Supercomputer reliability and High-Speed Data Collection demonstrations.

Come watch Barry Warthen explode eggs inside his traveling “Explodatorium!” A Lab researcher with the DARHT Experiments and Diagnostics Group, Barry will demonstrate how we can use flash photography and flash radiography to learn about dynamic experiments. 

Nathan Debardeleben, with the Lab’s High Performance Computing Design group, started designing, programming, and tinkering at an early age. At the Lab, Nathan uses his knowledge to help build the latest supercomputers and keep them running in tip-top shape—no matter what the environment throws at them. Join Nathan at the Museum to learn more about the evolution of the Lab’s supercomputers and the challenges facing those responsible for them.
