Caption: The Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation we call it NEES is a 21st century model of collaboration literally, a laboratory without walls or clocks. Researchers from across the United States will be able to operate equipment and observe experiments from anywhere on the net. They will study how building design, advanced materials and other measures can minimize earthquake damage and loss of life.
