Extraordinary Photos of Everyday Life in Oak Ridge, the Secret City

Here's a collection of rare historical photos from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, a town established by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1942 on an isolated farm. It was a secret location that became one of the most significant sites of the Manhattan Project.

The Titan supercomputer at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory is on track for completion by autumn, and will deliver between 10 petaflops (10,000 trillion operations per second) and 20 petaflops of peak performance, the ORNL said Wednesday. The initial phase of its development has just been completed, the lab said.

Here's where you can find user manuals for almost any gadget, plus a website that lets you compare camera sizes before you buy.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory's new director said Wednesday the lab is considering testing in Chattanooga related to autonomous driving and long-haul trucking.

Titan is a supercomputer built by Cray at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for use in a variety of science projects.

Titan Supercomputer, aimed to knock the IBM Sequoia off the top spot at the fastest Supercomputer in the world. Boasts a peak performance of Petaflops with almost Opteron cores in compute nodes, 710 Terabytes of memory inside sqft of floor space.

Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) was established at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2004 with the mission of accelerating scientific discovery and engineering progress by providing outstanding computing and data management resources to high-priority research and development projects.

Titan, Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s supercomputer, is going to have a more-powerful sibling in a few years.
