Thursday, June 09, 2005 - The Z Machine

The Z-Machine is in the category of technologies that just look so cool! If I could just get with the times, and post pictures on my blog you could see it here. But, you'll have to follow the link because I'm old fashioned. LiveScience is reporting an upgrade of the device, capable of simulating a nuclear bomb, will happen soon. So, what would an upgrade of the Z-machine entail, anyway?
"Housed at Sandia National Laboratories, the Z machine attracted a lot of attention eight years ago when its energy output more than quadrupled – raising hopes that the reactions in the Z could provide a new source of clean, abundant power. To help further progress towards this end, the machine is getting a $61.7 million upgrade, officials announced recently." - The Z Machine
