Terascale Simulation Facility logo

November 2002 brought the first rain of the season. With the completion of the steel frame, construction on the Terascale Simulation Facility (TSF) moved indoors for the pouring of concrete floors in the office section. Back outside, construction progress included roofing of the computer section and installation of electrical equipment in the mechanical room and electrical yard.
