Shaheen XC40, a Cray system in Saudi Arabia, is now ranked as the world&rsquo;s seventh fastest supercomputer, and is the first supercomputer from the Middle East to crack the top 10.</p> 41458 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 08:27:37 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Supercomputers listen for extraterrestrial life http://www.isgtw.org/feature/supercomputers-listen-extraterrestrial-life <p> The search for intelligent life in the universe continues. Astronomers are using DiRAC and Piz Daint supercomputers to learn how stellar winds change radio signals emitted from exoplanets so radio telescopes know how to listen.</p> 41619 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 08:27:37 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Dark matter running out of places to hide http://www.isgtw.org/spotlight/dark-matter-running-out-places-hide <p> Knowing how much matter the universe contains calls for the most precise cosmological cartography. Using maps garnered from DECam imagery and Argonne National Laboratory data processing, astrophysicists are confirming galaxy distribution follows dark matter distribution.&nbsp;</p> 41620 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 08:27:37 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed The first 3D atomic-scale nanoparticle images http://www.isgtw.org/visualization/first-3d-atomic-scale-nanoparticle-images 41618 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 08:27:37 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed
