SuperViz '94 Showcases Excellent Science -- Area HS Students Featured in Supercomputing Video

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announces that five science video animations produced at the center were among the 34 selected for the International Supercomputing '94 Conference showcase video, SuperViz '94, as excellent examples of scientific research. With the assistance of OSC staff Tim Rozmajzl, Leslie Southern, and Rob Berry, two of the projects were created by high school students who participated in OSC's 1994 Summer Institute program.

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).
