A team of researcher at Goethe University Frankfurt, as part of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration, used high-performance computing resources at the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) to create high-resolution models of the black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
The pandemic inspired an interest in how resilient our nation’s production and distribution systems are, against similar large-scale social disruptions as well as climate-related impacts. An INL research team interested in addressing these challenges identified food and agriculture as one sector to better understand. From there, they searched for an appropriate commodity to serve as their first official case study. For an Idaho-based team, the three most obvious options were milk, wheat and potatoes.
Knowing variants of concern can spike rates of illness and death around the globe, scientists using the APS are concentrating efforts on mutations of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Creating a machine learning agent to ease interactions between participants in virtual and augmented reality environments —such as the metaverse— in order to help them achieve their goals and address conflict situations. This is the main objective of GuestXR, the European project under the coordination of professor Mel Slater, from the Faculty of Phycology and the Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona (UBNeuro).
There's a huge urgency worldwide to find new therapies that help patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), that's why Deepti Lall, PhD, a project scientist in the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute is looking beyond neurons to find possible new treatments for the deadly disease.
Through her research of Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale play, Kyung Jae Lee, an assistant professor of petroleum engineering at the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering found that highly concentrated lithium was found in the produced water (water produced as a byproduct during the extraction of oil and natural gas) along with produced natural gas and oil.
