Supercomputers, XSEDE Resources Help Reduce Jet Engine Noise

A researcher at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is reducing sound from jet engines for his NASA- and Navy-funded research. He’s using resources provided through an organization based partly at NCSA: Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). The National Science Foundation-funded project links supercomputers and code experts to academics who need them. Daniel...

How to See Living Machines

It sounds like something out of the Borg in Star Trek. Nano-sized robots self-assemble to form biological machines that do the work that keeps one alive. And yet something like this really does go on. Every cell in our body - be they flesh and blood, brain and everything in between - has identical DNA, the twisted staircase of nucleic acids uniquely coded to each organism. Complex...

NCSA Collaboration Helps Discover New Dwarf Planet

While cataloguing dark energy in space, scientists made a startling discovery with help from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) supercomputer Blue Waters. The discovery: A new dwarf planet, temporarily named DeeDee. The Chilean telescope at the center of the Dark Energy Survey (DES) discovered the icy planet over the summer. Previous telescopes didn't detect the...
