Colliding black holes
Thanks to a new simulation from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the Blue Waters supercomputer at NCSA, we now have a pretty good idea what it looks like when two black holes collide.
Illinois allocations submissions
Illinois faculty and researchers will have one final opportunity for allocations on Blue Waters, which is planned to end service in December 2019. Proposals for general allocations are due October 26.
