09.22.16 - Galactic Fireworks Illuminate Monster Hydrogen Blob
An international team of researchers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array and other telescopes has discovered the power source illuminating a so-called Lyman-alpha Blob—a rare, brightly glowing, and enormous concentration of gas in the distant universe. Simulations were run on the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility's Pleiades supercomputer.

2.22.16 - Low-Carbon Policies Could Save US Lives
Reducing U.S. climate emissions enough to avoid a 2-degree Celsius increase in global warming could prevent up to 175,000 deaths by 2030, according to a new analysis by Duke University and NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies researchers. The study includes climate projections run at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
