Franck Report: "I had joined a committee of scientists who advocated the use of the atomic bomb for demonstration purposes. We hoped the enemy would see the destructive power of this weapon and immediately surrender. In June, 1945, we attempted to deliver our plan, the Franck Report, to President Truman. I don't know if he ever saw our work..."

Seaborg IBM supercomputer

'In the late 1990s, supercomputers, like this IBM RS/600 SP, grew dramatically larger as they were designed around commodity processors and standard cabinets.

In 1999, the Department of Energy's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center began installing an IBM RS/6000 SP supercomputer-called Seaborg, in honor of Berkeley Lab Nobel Laureate Glenn Seaborg. Over the years, the system expanded to 6,656 processors. It performed about 10 trillion calculations per second (10 teraflops) at its peak. And by June 2003, Seaborg was the fourth fastest supercomputer in the world.

NERSC's Seaborg supercomputer-an IBM RS/6000 SP-retired in 2007, after 9 years of 24/7 service.
