With Big Red ll researchers see inside exotic dead stars
“Neutron stars for breakfast? If you could slice open a dense stellar corpse and zoom in, its internal structure might look like a pile of waffles.” So begins the story of IU Professor of Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics Chuck Horowitz and his simulation of neutron star material. Don Berry of IU Research Technologies worked on the code.
Karst supercomputer will attract more federal grants, sparking discovery and jobs
IU’s new Karst supercomputer is open to IU faculty, undergrad and grad students, and departments, and an “important addition to IU’s scholarly cyberinfrastructure because it provides an effective solution for researchers who need their own cluster," says Associate Dean of Research Technologies Craig Stewart.
In Wired magazine, IU Research Technology Manager of High Performance Systems Dave Hancock says supercomputing is no longer a niche technology, but key to the research university and to economic competitiveness.
