Listen carefully among the wild brush and you can hear the whirl of some of the world's most powerful computers and minds. It's a fascinating look at computers and a fun hands-on visit to see what these magical machines can do. The computers are working on research relating to tsunami early-warning systems, Arctic region climate research, and human-computer interface. But the most fun comes in the weekly tours, where you can soar like an eagle over Alaska's valleys, witness the devastating tsunami that followed the 1964 earthquake, or paint a digital picture in 3D.
