What the Messier 87 black hole would look like? UA Department of Astronomy researchers Dimitrios Psaltis, Feryal Ozel, Chi-kwan Chan, and Lia Medeiros used the El Gato system in the Computer Center's Research Data Center to model it before processing of the Event Horizon Telescope data was completed. From the UA News article:
Lo Que Pasa recently published an article about UA research projects across disciplinary boundaries and efforts to expand data science education. Two new institutes have put the UA on track to become a data science powerhouse at the national level and leader in promoting data science literacy and transdisciplinary research.
UA researchers and students are able to use campus computing resources to advance their work.
