The National Center for Atmospheric Research and its managing organization, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research , celebrated the halfway mark in construction of the 70 million dollar Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne with a recent media tour.

The Cheyenne-based center will contain some of the world's most powerful supercomputers dedicated to improving scientific understanding of climate change, severe weather, air quality and other vital atmospheric science and geoscience topics.

Project Engineer Aaron Andersen says Wyoming’s cool, dry climate will aid NCAR’s research efforts.

The facility is being developed in partnership with the University of Wyoming, the state of Wyoming, Cheyenne LEADS, the Wyoming Business Council and Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power.
