SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is opening a new facility in Springfield that will add 30 high-tech jobs over the next two years. The center will help anchor a new research park and act as a catalyst for building a technology corridor between the Springfield-Dayton area and Central Ohio.

Ohio will soon have some high-tech bragging rights when the Third Frontier Network (TFN) is lit this summer. After nearly two years of development, nearly 100 institutions of higher education and thousands of primary and secondary schools throughout the state will have access to the nation’s most advanced statewide education and research network.

Ohio is positioned to become a national leader in networking and computing technologies with the deployment of the country’s first statewide fiber optic network for education and research. Called the Third Frontier Network, this new technology initiative of the Ohio Board of Regents is operated by OARnet, the Internet services division of the Ohio Supercomputer Center.

Chemists at The Ohio State University and their colleagues may have settled a 70-year-old scientific debate on the fundamental nature of ice.

A new statistical analysis mechanical theory has confirmed what some scientists only suspected before: that under the right conditions, molecules of water can freeze together in just the right way to form a perfect crystal. And once frozen, that ice can be manipulated by electric fields in the same way that magnets respond to magnetic fields.
