Continuing Arecibo's Legacy

Data from the collapsed Arecibo radio telescope has found a new home at TACC. Thanks to a multi-institutional partnership, 50 years of Arecibo sky scans are being safely moved and preserved. This data has helped scientists make Nobel-prize-winning discoveries.

New Discoveries in the Making for 2021-2022

The National Science Foundation has approved allocations of supercomputing time on TACC's Frontera supercomputer for 58 science projects for 2021-2022. The projects, led by researchers at 41 universities across 23 states, range from efforts to engineer new nanomaterials to studies mapping pan-Arctic permafrost thaw.

Getting to the Core of HIV Replication

Scientists discovered a new mechanism for how the HIV-1 virus imports nucleotides into its core that fuel DNA synthesis. Supercomputer simulations using TACC's Stampede2 and Bridges at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center helped test translocation and free energy within the virus. The research will help find new drug targets and improve anti-retroviral drugs.

Searching for Hints of New Physics in the Subatomic World

Two leading contemporary scholars of quantum chromodynamics are using the Frontera supercomputer at TACC to explore hints of new physics in discrepancies between theoretical results and particle physics experiments. Their work addresses the magnetic moment of the muon, which was recently found to not match the predictions of the Standard Model, prompting worldwide excitement.

NSF Opinion: "We need to strengthen and accelerate U.S. science and technology progress"

The time has come to unleash the full power of U.S. innovation or risk diminished relevance. Thanks to strong support from Congress, the National Science Foundation will forge a path for American leadership in R&D.

  Freshwater from Beaufort Sea Could Alter Global Climate Patterns

Freshwater from Beaufort Sea Could Alter Global Climate Patterns

Researchers from the University of Washington have discovered that Arctic water with slow overturning circulation could have dire consequences for European weather systems and deliver intense coastal flooding to the U.S. eastern seaboard.
