A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday for the National Center for Atmospheric Research Supercomputing Center to be built in Cheyenne. The Center will provide advanced computing services to scientists around the nation and world. Governor Dave Freudenthal says that persistence paid off in the end.

University of Wyoming is one of the partners in the center, and President Tom Buchanan says the facility will push the boundaries of science and engineering.

The Supercomputing Center is expected to be up and running in spring of 2012, and it will cost approximately $70 million to construct.
