Plug-and-Play Macroscopes

submitted by: cfrend
DECISION MAKING IN science, industry, and politics, as well as in daily life, requires that we make sense of data sets representing the structure and dynamics of complex systems. Analysis, navigation, and management of these continuously evolving data sets require a new kind of data-analysis and visualization tool we call a macroscope (from the Greek macros, or “great,” and skopein, or “to observe”) inspired by deRosnay’s futurist science writings. Just as the microscope made it...

Giver of light, supporter of life, energy, climate and season device. The sun is a star, we're glad it is here, as our life support, for 5 billion years. This star is among the brightest in space, though close, many questions about it remain. With violet ,orange, and reddish of hues, our home solar...

Modeling Early Galaxies Using Radiation Hydrodynamics

submitted by: btolo
This simulation uses a flux-limited diffusion solver to explore the radiation hydrodynamics of early galaxies, in particular, the ionizing radiation created by Population III stars. At the time of this rendering, the simulation has evolved to a redshift of 3.5. The simulation volume is 11.2 comoving megaparsecs, and has a uniform grid of 1024^3 cells, with over 1 billion dark matter and star particles. The simulation was computed on resources of the National Institute for Computational...
