OSC Demonstrates Shared Virtual Environments at Spring I2 Member Meeting

Columbus, Ohio -- April 10, 1998 -- Why does a second Internet need to be created? Ask 10 researchers and policymakers across the nation and you may receive 10 different answers. One important answer lies in the health and well-being of Americans.

Many advances in medicine depend on advances in technology, including virtual reality, computer simulations, and a faster Internet. Researchers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus will demonstrate their recent work at the Spring Internet 2 (I2) Member meeting in Washington, DC, April 14-18.

LHC research program launched with 7 TeV collisions

Geneva, Switzerland (March 30, 2010) At 1:06 p.m. Central European Summer Time (CEST) today, the first protons collided at 7 TeV in the Large Hadron Collider. These first collisions, recorded by the LHC experiments, mark the start of the LHC’s research program. Animation of the first reconstructed 7 TeV events seen by ALICE can be found on YouTube. For more information about this milestone event and American participation – including involvement by staff members of the Ohio Supercomputer Center, read the press releases below.

X-ray researchers turn focus from black holes to cancer

Two Ohio State University astronomy researchers have established an international reputation for using X-rays and supercomputers to search the vast depths of space to identify elusive black holes. Now, they and their interdisciplinary colleagues are repositioning their scientific methodology to peer into the human body to enhance cancer therapy and diagnostics (theranostics).
