The blazing fast processing speed of the Blue Waters supercomputer yielded frigid results and a hot honor for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign chemistry professor So Hirata. Selected by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications last year as a Blue Waters Professor, Hirata was able to take advantage of the computing time set aside for these distinguished researchers to explore a very cold topic: ice. And a resulting article was tapped as an “editor’s pick” by the Journal of Chemical Physics and featured on the journal’s website the week of May 30th.
