  Lonestar6 Supercomputer Expands Texas Leadership in Critical Technology

The new Lonestar6 system will support Texas researchers and students through the University of Texas Research Cyberinfrastructure (UTRC) initiative. Over the past five years, the initiative has assisted more than 7,000 researchers and students on more than 2,300 projects.

 
 

Lonestar6 Supercomputer Expands Texas Leadership in Critical Technology

TACC this month announced the launch of Lonestar6, the latest system built to power discoveries by Texas researchers and students. The system is supported by UT System, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and the University of North Texas System, and is powered by Dell servers and AMD chips. Lonestar6 maintains Texas' leadership in supercomputing and helps attract top faculty across science and engineering fields.

TACC Mourns Passing of Peter J. O'Donnell Jr.

Educational philanthropist Peter J. O'Donnell Jr. passed away in October at the age of 97. O'Donnell was a driving force behind many initiatives at UT Austin, including the establishment and ongoing support of TACC. O'Donnell contributed to the advancement of data-driven science by supporting the acquisition of high-performance data analysis and storage systems at the center. His foundation also contributed to the construction of the Advanced Computing Building that houses the majority of TACC's staff. He will be sorely missed.

What Happens When a Meteor Hits the Atmosphere?

Scientists from Johns Hopkins University developed simulations using TACC's Stampede2 supercomputer to model the physics of what happens when a meteor hits the atmosphere. The research will help scientists understand the Earth's atmospheric chemistry and characterize the space environment of our solar system.
