Can a nuke save us from a deadly asteroid? Scientists have created simulations that show what would happen if a nuclear bomb were to detonate a space rock orbiting Earth.

The model shows the bomb landing on the asteroid, exploding and sending a burst of energy shooting through the cosmic matter.

The team used an AI-powered simulation to see if a nuke would intercept an asteroid The team found that energy spreads through the rock in space READ MORE: How NASA’s …

Supercomputer provides new suite of Lyman-Forest simulations for illustrating the large-scale structure of the universe

TACC’s Frontera supercomputer helped astronomers develop PRIYA, the largest suite of hydrodynamic simulations yet performed on large-scale structures in the universe. Example Lyman-forest spectra from quasar light and corresponding gas …
