Blue Waters researcher looking to take the salt out of seawater
Illinois professor Narayana Aluru led a team that found that tiny pores in thin sheets of the material molybdenum disulfide could be very good at removing salt from seawater to yield drinkable water.
Faculty mentors and undergrads sought for Blue Waters internship program
To help prepare the next generation of supercomputing researchers, the Blue Waters project offers paid internships to undergraduate students across the country.
For bacteria that swim, determining whether to stay the course or head in a new direction is vital to survival. A new study offers atomic-level details of the molecular machinery that allows swimming bacteria to sense their environment and change direction when needed.
Graduate Fellowship applications are due Feb. 3
Applications are due Feb. 3, 2016, for the Blue Waters Graduate Fellowship program for 2016-2017, which provides grad students from across the country the opportunity to immerse themselves in a year of focused HPC research.
Blue Waters user finds astronomical missing link
The results of hypernova simulation, published online Nov. 30 in advance of publication in the journal Nature, demonstrate that as a rotating star collapses, the star and its attached magnetic field spin faster and faster, forming a dynamo that revs the magnetic field to a million billion times the magnetic field of Earth.
