When Stars Collide: 3D Computer Simulation Captures Cosmic Event

Using supercomputing resources at NERSC, an international team has captured the collision of two neutron stars in a 3D computer model for the first time. Their research has led to a better understanding of the cosmic collision, showing how heavy elements like lead and gold are created and accounting for a phenomenon missing in other models. More>
