An analysis that would have taken more than a thousand years on a single computer has found within one year more than a dozen new rapidly rotating neutron stars in data from the Fermi gamma-ray space telescope. With computing ...
A mathematical model that predicts how water condenses around tiny particles could help to improve chemical industrial processes, including the production of drug tablets, fertilizers and catalysts.
Could flashing the "peace" sign in photos lead to fingerprint data being stolen?
In an increasingly digital world, we don't always consider where on earth the information we find online comes from.
