Description:

For those users interested in the history of a wide variety of notable inventions and discoveries, the US Department of Engery's (DOE) Research and Development Accomplishments Web site should provide unique insight into topics like the video game, CAT/ MRI scans, and the Human Genome, among others. The site's primary focus is its accomplishments database, which contains "searchable full-text and bibliographic citations of documents reporting accomplishments from DOE and DOE contractor facilities." For example, a search on the keyword "Einstein" renders a long list of Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) documents that cover topics ranging from the Manhattan Project to magnetic fusion energy research to transuranium elements. In addition to the database, the site offers two other substantial sections -- Featured Topics and Snapshots -- both which should provide most readers with much relevant information to browse.
