University of Maryland Establishes Orbital Debris Research Center
May 21 14
The University of Maryland announced the establishment of the Center for Orbital Debris Education and Research (CODER) to address critical issues in orbiting space debris and serve as a hub for academic, industry, and government research collaboration. The increasing volume of orbiting space debris could significantly hinder future economy and national security as the world's reliance on satellites for communications, research, and defense grows. Orbiting debris can travel faster than three times the speed of a bullet and poses a threat to space-based communications, weather forecasting, commerce, scientific exploration, Earth observation, and future space activities.
University of Maryland Launches New Supercomputer to Expand High-Performance Computing for Research
May 14 14
The University of Maryland unveiled Deepthought2, to support advanced research activities ranging from studying the formation of the first galaxies to simulating fire and combustion for fire protection advancements. Developed with high-performance computing solutions from Dell, Deepthought2 has a processing speed of about 300 teraflops. Deepthought2 is a significant asset of the new Cyberinfrastructure Center - a 9,000-square-foot data facility located in the Rivertech Building in the university's M Square Research Park. Several university divisions and colleges and researchers from a variety of disciplines worked together to obtain this new central computing resource and to bring online the new Cyberinfrastructure Center - a facility specifically designed to provide the needed space, energy efficient climate control, and backup power for the supercomputer. Deepthought2 replaces the original Deepthought, installed in 2006. The new supercomputer, which is 10 times faster than its predecessor, can complete between 250 trillion and 300 trillion operations per second. It has a petabyte (1 million gigabytes) of storage and is connected by an InfiniBand network, a very high-speed internal network. Put another way, Deepthought2 is the equivalent of 10,000 laptops working together, it has 2,000 times the storage of an average laptop, and its internal network is 50 times faster than broadband.
