NCSA Grants $2.6M in Blue Waters Awards to Illinois ResearchersThe National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has awarded 3,697,000 node hours (NH) of time on the Blue Waters supercomputer to Illinois researchers from Spring 2017 proposal submissions.The combined value of these awards is over $2.6 million dollars, and through the life of the Blue Waters program, NCSA has awarded over 43 million node hours to UI researchers—a value of nearly $27 million. Some of the time allocated for Blue Waters will go to projects that focus on HIV research, Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) simulations, genomics and global warming research..
Discovery confirms Einstein prediction; NCSA played roleA billion light years from Earth, two dense objects known as black holes collide at enormous speed, sending giant ripples through the fabric of space-time.Albert Einstein predicted such an event a century ago as part of his theory of relativity, and scientists have been searching for those ripples, known as gravitational waves, ever since.The announcement of their discovery sent waves of excitement around the globe Thursday, including at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications in Urbana, created 30 years ago to help scientists solve enormous computational puzzles like this one..
