Meet the Frontier Fields: Abell 2744

Abell 2744, also known as Pandora’s Cluster, is a giant pile-up of four smaller galaxy clusters. Abell 2744, and its neighboring parallel field, are among the first targets of the Frontier Fields program. The Abell catalogue of galaxy clusters was first compiled by astronomer George O. Abell in 1958, with over 2,700 galaxy clusters observable […]

​One million cores: A breakthrough in CFD simulation

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations can easily generate 100+ terabytes of data. Scientists and engineers depend on supercomputers with hundreds of thousands of computing cores to solve the complex equations involved. Read about successful simulations breaking the million-core barrier. When Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California, US, began offering outside researchers compute time on […]
