Creating a federation of global computers for science and research

Cybera’s Rapid Access Cloud is a small contributor to a global chain of compute nodes, brought together by the Open Science Grid to support science projects. A computer cluster is when several “tightly connected” computers are made to work on a project together, essentially creating a single system. These clusters are a great means of …

Alberta group models CO2 injection system off the coast of Canada

The dangers of a warming Earth caused by climate change are well documented. Scientists around the world agree: if we are to maintain the health (and even survival) of millions of plants and animal species around the world, we need to cap our carbon emissions now. While reducing overall carbon emissions is the ultimate goal …

Alberta-led project seeks to detect powerful neutrinos off the coast of BC

“They’re messengers of the most interesting things that happen in the Universe.” This is how Dr. Carsten B. Krauss, Director of the Centre for Particle Physics at the University of Alberta, describes high-energy neutrinos. “Neutrinos come from the explosions of stars, and possibly from other sources, like the environment around black holes,” says Krauss. “What’s …
