Welcome to the sancta sanctorumof science! The University of California, Berkeley is not only a campus rich of laboratories and halls, is a heaven-like park in which you can breathe the healthy air of knowledge! Some of the most important steps in computer sciences and physics have been made here. And it's possible to feel them even today! As usual, more inside!

By the way, the visual computing of Xefirotharch Design Studio has been the most attractive theme to me. More if you go on reading...
