WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2015: ULTRAFAST DATA TRANSFER SPEEDS UP SCIENCE

WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2015: ULTRAFAST DATA TRANSFER SPEEDS UP SCIENCE

ALL ABOARD THE FIBER-OPTIC EXPRESS

When the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) comes back online this spring, it will produce more data than ever before—40 petabytes per year. That surge reflects a trend in science: Increasingly precise instruments produce greater amounts of data.
It’s a nice problem to have, but it’s still a problem, particularly for scientists based an ocean away from devices like the LHC. Large files that rocket across ultrahigh-speed fiber-optic networks, like the Department of Energy’s 100 gigabit­-per-second (Gbps) ESnet, bottleneck in slow underwater lines. But by the end of January, ESnet’s transatlantic extension will provide 340 Gbps transfer speeds between U.S. and European labs, changing the pace of global collaboration.
“For the hardest problems—not just in physics but in climate science and genomics—there are massive teams working around the world,” says ESnet director Greg Bell. “Our job is to make geography irrelevant.”
Bandwidths, New Vs. Old

In two minutes, the Department of Energy’s new undersea cable network can carry 1.5 terabytes of scientific data (represented by the green circle) across the Atlantic. The old connection could handle just 150 gigabytes (the yellow circle).
This article is part of our annual "Year In Ideas" package, which looks forward to the most important science stories we can expect in the coming year. It was originally published in the January 2015 issue of Popular Science.

Explainer: The nico-teen brain

Explainer: The nico-teen brain The adolescent brain is especially vulnerable to the addictive effects of nicotine BY  TERESA SHIPLEY FELDHAUSEN 7:00AM, AUGUST 19, 2015 Nicotine (black triangle towards center left) tricks the nerve cell (neuron) into sending a message to release more dopamine (yellow dots). Those molecules enter the space (synapse) between one nerve cell and the next. When they get picked up by neighboring cells, this gives users a feel-good high. It also creates the risk of addiction and other health problems.  EMail Print Twitter Facebook Reddit Google+ NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE, ADAPTED BY J. HIRSHFELD Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco smoke and e-cigarette vapors. And doctors say the teenage brain is no place for it to end up. Nicotine can reach the brain within seven seconds of puffing on a cigar, hookah, cigarette or electronic cigarette.
The area of the brain responsible for emotions and controlling our wild impulses is known as the prefrontal c…
