Rao has developed an award-winning disease forecasting model.

When life-threatening weather events loom, forecasters warn citizens days, even weeks, beforehand so they can take action. It seems to work: We clear supermarket shelves, board up windows and even evacuate to higher ground ahead of the impending tempest to avoid danger.

Eighteen Ohio middle school girls are spending a week of their summer break investigating complex science problems while discovering career opportunities in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Molecular dynamics simulations at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) are helping scientists get closer to directly observing how and why water is essential to life as we know it. 

Sixteen Ohio high school students are spending two weeks of their summer break investigating complex science and engineering problems, while discovering career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

In February, NASA announced it would move forward with its Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) mission, which will study a broad set of scientific investigations. For the past five years, researchers from Ohio State, whose own research has been buoyed by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, have been on NASA’s Science Definition Team for the preliminary study of WFIRST, set to launch in the mid-2020s. Find out how OSC is supporting this historic research and what it could mean for the future of space exploration. 

Jesse Owens at 1936 Olympics

Having set collegiate athletics afire a year earlier with four world records set or tied in a single day, Jesse Owens sprinted to four gold medals and two Olympic records at the 1936 Berlin Games and refuted the Nazi notion of Aryan racial superiority.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center has been selected as an  Intel® Parallel Computing Center. As part of the the Intel® PCC program, the OSC research team will work toward modernizing a computer software package that leverages large-scale, 3-D modeling to research fatigue and fracture analyses, primarily in metals. 

Washington, D.C. (Feb. 18, 2016) – The AweSim program at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and EWI have been selected to develop one of 10 national industry projects under the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) program.

Every significant breakthrough – from a baby’s curiosity to a scientist etching his or her name in the history books – begins with one question, one syllable, one word: Why?

Leaders from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) met with five senior members of the Beijing Computing Center (BCC) and Comet Solutions, Inc. at the Ohio Technology Consortium facility Wednesday afternoon to discuss challenges, share history and look to the future of app development at a high-performance computing organization.
