Fast and innovative: Jülich supercomputer is a new development from Europe

( Forschungszentrum Juelich) When it comes to developing innovative supercomputer architectures, Europe is about to take the lead. A striking example of this is the new supercomputer that is due to start user operation at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) in the next few days. JUWELS is a milestone on the road to a new generation of ultraflexible modular supercomputers targeting a broader range of tasks -- from big data applications right up to compute-intensive simulations.

NASA's IMERG examines flooding in southern Texas from tropical disturbance

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) While Tropical Storm Bud was lashing parts of western Mexico and causing flooding that extended into the American Southwest, a tropical disturbance was spinning over the Gulf of Mexico and straddling southeastern Texas. This system sat in place for almost a week bringing extremely heavy rainfall and causing a flash flood emergency. More than 15 inches (381 mm) of rain fell in Hidalgo County, Texas between June 18 and 22.

'Stealth' material hides hot objects from infrared eyes

( University of Wisconsin-Madison) Infrared cameras are the heat-sensing eyes that help drones find their targets even in the dead of night or through heavy fog. Hiding from such detectors could become much easier, thanks to a new cloaking material that renders objects -- and people -- practically invisible.
