Subatomic Physics Alpha Computing Environment

bladerackA high performance computing farm known as Subatomic Physics Alpha Computing Environment (OpenSPACE), is funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), Saskatchewan Economic and Co-operative Development, Compaq Canada, Avnet Enterprise Solutions and the Faculty of Science. This computing farm is a series of computers linked together to perform large-scale analysis, simulations and theoretical calculations of experiments aimed at understanding the inner workings of the atomic nucleus. The $1-million four-year project will put the Department of Physics at the centre of international sub-atomics research.
