Over at NERSC, Linda Vu writes that Berkeley Lab computational researchers were major contributors to two of the “Breakthroughs of the Year” cited in the most recent issue of Science Magazine. The breakthroughs included the discovery of the Higgs-Boson and the Neutrino Mixing Angle within stars.

Thanks to the computing expertise at Berkeley Lab, we were able to see antineutrinos with NuWa in the first filled detectors within 24 hours,” said Craig Tull head of Berkeley Lab’s Science Software Systems Group. “We were able to see an anti-neutrino deficit in the far hall within days.”
