Data from the collapsed Arecibo radio telescope are being safely moved and preserved to the Texas Advanced Computing Center of UT Austin. A multi-institutional partnership formed to safely transfer over three petabytes of data from 50 years of Arecibo sky scans. The data have helped scientists make Nobel-prize-winning discoveries about […]

ANIMATION Particle physicists use lattice quantum chromodynamics and supercomputers to search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Peer deeper into the heart of the atom than any microscope allows and scientists hypothesize that you will find a rich world of particles popping in and out of the vacuum, decaying into other particles, […]

A computer-created graphic of a river meandering and associated sediment deposits. The lighter blue represents the river’s current flow. The darker blue represents old areas of flow that have been cut off due to the river’s meandering. The striped regions along the flow paths represent sediment deposits in the form […]

Researchers believe they have closed the case of what killed the dinosaurs, definitively linking their extinction with an asteroid that slammed into Earth 66 million years ago by finding a key piece of evidence: asteroid dust inside the impact crater. Death by asteroid rather than by a series of volcanic […]

Faster, smaller, smarter and more energy-efficient chips for everything from consumer electronics to big data to brain-inspired computing could soon be on the way after engineers at The University of Texas at Austin created the smallest memory device yet.
