Titan helps researchers explore explosive star scenarios
A team led by Michael Zingale of Stony Brook University used the Titan supercomputer to complete a three-dimensional, high-resolution investigation of the thermonuclear burning a double-detonation white dwarf undergoes before explosion. The study expands upon the team's initial 3-D simulation of this supernova scenario, which was carried out in 2013.

Industry growth forum fosters cleantech companies
A buzz builds in the corridors of a downtown Denver hotel, the sounds of casual conversations and earnest entrepreneurs. If synapses firing made a noise, it might sound like this, the click of connections being made. Over the course of two days, 30 cleantech entrepreneurs will make their case for funding at this year's Industry Growth Forum (IGF) put on by the Energy Department's National Renewable Laboratory (NREL).

NREL estimates economically viable US renewable generation
Analysts at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are providing, for the first time, a method for measuring the economic potential of renewable energy across the United States. A study applying this new method found that renewable energy generation is economically viable in many parts of the United States largely due to rapidly declining technology costs.

Managing the data deluge for national security analysts
National security analysts often find that available data is growing much faster than their ability to observe and process it. Sometimes they can't make key connections and often they are overwhelmed struggling to use data for predictions and forensics. Sandia National Laboratories' Pattern Analytics to Support High-Performance Exploitation and Reasoning team has developed solutions that will enable analysts to work smarter, faster and more effectively when looking at complex data in real-time, stressful environments.
