Did you grow up wanting to be an anthropologist? Archaeologist? Wonder how humans "became human?" The Institute of Human Origins opens its doors for you to see and touch skulls and bones (casts) from different phases of human evolution and learn about how humans developed over "deep time"—the last six million years! Including the “founding fossil” Lucy, the 3.2 million-year-old Australopithecus afarensis discovered by Don Johanson in 1974, called “queen of hominin skeletons.” So, put on your best Indiana Jones hat and come explore anthropology!
Stop by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Visitors Center in the Interdisciplinary A (INTDSA) building and watch the staff target images of the Moon in the Science Operation Center.

You can also see the latest high-resolution LROC images on display in the hallway and lobby.

Researchers use computers in their work every day, but often the problems they are trying to solve are so big that one computer simply cannot handle the task. By harnessing the power of thousands of computers that are communicating with each other simultaneously, a big problem can be divided and conquered. Sounds simple enough, but coordinating all of these computers requires specialized expertise.
