DOE Awards Announced

The DOE has moved more into funding academic-type work, and has announced some new, big awards in astrophysics, lattice QCD, turbulence, and petascale, distributed computing.

An unrelated postscript is that it looks like the plot for the season opener of The Simpson's is out (apparently airing in just a couple days). For some funny moments as remembered by physicists see the comments of this post.
Update: CNN has a piece up on Groening's desire to keep making the show because it's fun and which mentions the movie due out next summer.
