Grid helps to filter LIGO’s data


Tiny ripples in the fabric of space-time may provide scientists with a way to study cosmic processes that are invisible to optical telescopes, such as the collision of two black holes.

In his theory of general relativity, Einstein predicted that such ripples, called gravitational waves, would be created when a mass accelerates. However, gravitational waves are so small – about one thousand times smaller than a proton – that even the relatively large ones generated by massive astrophysical events are very difficult to detect.

Opinion

Since the microprocessor’s advent over 30 years ago, the vast majority of software applications have been built and executed on single processor computer systems. We have lived through an age of easy programmability where large numbers of software developers have learned to program in a variety of languages which can easily be compiled into machine code for the latest, greatest microprocessor.

 Recovery Act funds speed up high-speed ethernet

Modern science generates massive amounts of data, and bandwidth-hungry international collaborations are increasingly common. With that combination comes the need for speed — ethernet speed. A prototype network that's ten times as fast as current day ethernet technology may be just what the doctor ordered.
