News & EventsSTEAM project on CARC lights up the night on Route 66
The iconic Route 66, also known locally as Central Avenue, is famous for the neon lights that have been luring tourists and locals alike to diners, motels, and shops along the Mother Road for more than 50 years. The University of New Mexico Social Media Workgroup and the UNM Center for Advanced Research Computing are keeping the history of eye-catching light displays on the historic strip alive with a contemporary, more sustainable twist.
A new computing system donated to the Center for Advanced Research Computing (CARC) from Los Alamos Laboratory (LANL) will be the largest system at University of New Mexico. In keeping with its size and its northern New Mexico provenance, the powerful new computing system will be called Wheeler, named after the state’s largest mountain peak.
