NERSC’s name and logos have changed over the decades, reflecting the center’s increasingly broad scientific mission. Founded in 1974 at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as the Controlled Thermonuclear Research Computer Center, NERSC has evolved from its early days supporting magnetic fusion research at LLNL to providing supercomputing resources across a spectrum of scientific applications, including energy, astrophysics, biology and environmental sciences.
