Hubble's 15 years of celestial discovery Jennifer Miller, Managing Editor Curiosity is simple human nature. It's a deep-seated compulsion, an instinct if you will, to step out of the ordinary and explore, study and discover our surroundings. Can you imagine a world without the not-so-simple theories and findings of Galileo, Columbus, Einstein or Newton? Neither can I
Obtaining realistic measurements of high performance computing systems Nathan Wichmann Here's a hypothetical: Imagine you have to buy a new car, sight unseen. Would you base your decision solely on horsepower? Of course not. You'd want to compare several other factors, such as performance, ride handling, safety rating and fuel system. Even more critical would be choosing the right car
New York University chemists have employed a computer simulation whose results have enhanced scientific understanding of the packaging of DNA in the cell with applications to DNA transcription. Previous research has indicated that chromatin…
