Polymer Potential

Supercomputing time on the NICS-managed Darter system and others was critical to a research project at the Massachusetts Institute of technology aimed at understanding the molecular dynamics of polymers with promising characteristics.

NSF Extends the Kraken Project

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) $3 million to continue to provide advanced computing resources for researchers in science and engineering across the country through July 2016. This extension brings the total award for the Kraken project to more than $84.5 million since its inception in 2007.

Earth, Wind, & Fire

Unanticipated firestorms can take lives and destroy property, equipment, and other resources. With help from the eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), researchers are working to improve wildfire forecasts and give firefighting professionals a more powerful tool.
