NEES FEATURED IN 'NSF SENSATIONAL 60': The past 60 years have seen incredible developments in science and engineering. NSF has played a role in that progress. As the National Science Foundation (NSF) celebrates its 60th anniversary and 60 years of discovery, it points with quiet pride to immeasurable ways work supported by NSF has served our society in practical, beneficial ways.
During the past 60 years, we have seen incredible developments in science and engineering. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has played a role in that progress. As NSF celebrates its 60th anniversary, it points with quiet pride to immeasurable ways the work it has supported has served our society in practical, beneficial ways. NSF has produced a document that features 60 discoveries or advances that NSF believes have had a large impact or influence on every American's life. Just as the path to discovery is seldom a straight line, so too is the process of selecting such a list. As in scientific research, the selection process involved trial and error and strong doses of patience and vision. They call this list the 'Sensational 60', in honor of the National Science Foundation 60th anniversary. We at NEES are pleased to share with the community that the list includes mention of the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) and features highlights from Colorado State University and Oregon State University among the sampling of research all 14 sites are undertaking. Enjoy reading NSF Sensational 60. NEES is listed as #59. As NSF notes, all items in the Sensational 60 are listed alphabetically, and the listing does not imply any ranking of one itemÂ’s importance over another. NSF invites you to learn more about its leadership in scientific discoveries and the development of new technologies as it looks forward to the next 60 years of discoveries and advances.
