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.
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.
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.
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?
In a very significant way, Rodney Richardson has found a key that is unlocking some powerful insight into how we can help sustain the lives of our planet’s pollinators.
In 2014, the Ohio State University graduate student adapted his previous experience using Ohio Supercomputer Center resources for bioinformatics studies to his current research on honey bee foraging and the result could throw open the doors for this particular area of study.
Research on topics such as virtual welding simulation, evolutionary modeling and water absorption – just to name a few – were on full display during the Flash Talk and Poster competitions of the SUG meeting.
Research projects featuring a wide range of scientific interests, such as electron microscopy, pesticides and polymers, were featured at the first-ever poster session and flash talk competition at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) June 4.
Phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties, according to a landmark study supported by Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) services and recently published by a researcher group from The Ohio State University.
