This image of a Type Ia Supernova, created by Brad Gallagher using data from George Jordan and Donald Q. Lamb (University of Chicago), was based on research funded by INCITE. The blue surface approximates the surface of the star and the yellow surface shows the flame front, behind which there is ash from burning stellar material.
Argonne scientists awarded supercomputing time to enable scientific breakthroughs

Four researchers at Argonne National Laboratory lead projects that have been awarded a total of 65 million hours of computing time on Argonne’s energy-efficient Blue Gene/P (“Intrepid”) supercomputer. The researchers will conduct advanced simulation and analysis, performing virtual experiments that would be almost impossible and impractical in the natural world.
