XSEDE IMPACT OCTOBER 2017
XSEDE Applauds Nobel Prize Winners for Discovery of Gravitational Waves
XSEDE congratulates Rainer Weiss of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Barry Barish, and Kip Thorne, both at the California Institute of Technology, who were honored for "decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves" with the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics. XSEDE has been a collaborator in this research since 2013, and is looking forward to future collaborations with the LIGO project. Read more >>
Tools of the 21st Century: HPC, Analytical Ultracentrifugation, and a New Detector
Using an XSEDE community allocation, the UltraScan Analysis Software project relies on supercomputers such as Stampede2 and Jetstream at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, and Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center to allow users to make brilliant discoveries. For example, these users were life scientists and chemists who made a discovery about how the West Nile virus uses cell proteins to facilitate its replication. The XSEDE community allocation offers the use of a network of software tools that were developed as a science gateway. This enables entire communities of users associated with a common scientific goal to use national resources through a common interface. Read more >>
