At Russia’s International Forum for the 50th anniversary of Sputnik I, October 1-5, 2007, guests attending a special demonstration at the Russian
Academy of Sciences’ Space Research Institute (IKI) in Moscow saw high-resolution animations streamed from the US and the Netherlands to Russia over TransLight/
StarLight and GLORIAD networks using the NSF-funded Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment (SAGE) software.
On October 1, 2007, NCSA simulations of the Milky Way galaxy and a supercell tornado were streamed at 1Gbps from data stores at EVL (Chicago) and SARA (Amsterdam)
to a tiled display wall at the IKI.
IKI arranged the demonstration to show off the new 10Gbps network between MoscowLight and NetherLight. Over the course of two days, the demonstration was viewed by
the Vice Presidents of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Speaker of the Russian Duma, and many academicians.
