A new Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) animation created from a mathematical model shows a black hole moving supersonically through an interstellar gas cloud. This phenomenon often occurs in multiple star systems, where a companion star provides the gas cloud. The gravity of the black hole pulls the gas inward. Early on in the process, a [...]

A web-based work environment developed at the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) will give users of the National Science Foundation’s TeraGrid easy access to a wide range of bioinformatics and biomedical applications and databases and will allow the national biology research community to access computing, data, and other resources offered through the TeraGrid.
Partners in the National Science Foundation’s TeraGrid project held their quarterly meeting in Chapel Hill, NC, March 13 – 15, where they discussed the impact of TeraGrid resources and infrastructure on scientific discovery and strategized on ways to involve the broader research community in the TeraGrid. Built and implemented over the last four years, the [...]
