>SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The National Science Foundation said it will
>spend $53 million to build a massive computing grid that will be the most
>powerful of its kind ever completed and could lead to ground-breaking
>research that would have otherwise taken years, if not decades, to complete.
>
>Called the Distributed Terascale Facility, or DTF, it will be used by four
>U.S. research centers for research in areas including molecular modeling
>for detecting diseases, cures and drug discovery, research on alternative
>energy sources, climate and atmospheric simulations, among others.
