HPCwire Top Feature: HTC, Big Data and God Particle
Here is an excerpt
It is about time to give HTC (High Throughput Computing) the credit. Without this technology, the Higgs boson particle would have been relegated to an elegant theory. Sooner or later, technological advances in computer science ought to be successful to prove the God particle exists. It so happened that the first breakthrough technology to get there is HTC.Read more...
Great physicists are like great prophets. Professor Higgs and his colleagues are among them. They detect "the unrevealed", those whispers requiring great effort to comprehend . The WLCG (Worldwide Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid) delivered the proof of their thought experiments, while they are still alive. Never mind Nobel prize speculations, this by itself is a huge reward.
