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.
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.
