The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) hosted the 28th annual student summer STEM institute, during which the students worked on cutting-edge science projects with mentors at ORNL. The student projects this summer dealt with Supercomputers, Thermochromic Windows, Biochemical Pathways, Robotics Systems, Engineering Development and High-Altitude Ballooning.
The eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) and NICS have helped researchers discover what's behind the difference between two types of black hole jets.
XSEDE now offers multi-factor authentication for another layer of security.
Computational scientists from NICS and JICS are collaborating with medical researchers to enhance image processing.
Laser research on materials in the tiny realm of nanotechnology can lead to very big benefits to society. Resources from National Science Foundation's eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) are providing key support to this type of work.
Learn about the work of astronomer Wladimir Lyra, recipient of the prestigious Sagan Fellowship.
Astronomer Wladimir Lyra of California State University at Northridge says resources from the eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) are instrumental in his exploration of how Earth came to be. Listen to the podcast and read the Question and Answer with Lyra.
