Sandian Mark Boslough Featured on NOVA Episode about Chelyabinsk Meteor

On February 15th, a 7,000 ton asteroid crashed into the Earth’s atmosphere, exploded, and fell to the ground in the Ural Mountains near Chelyabinsk, Russia. According to NASA, the meteor exploded with the power of 30 Hiroshima bombs and was the largest object to burst in the atmosphere since the Tunguska event of 1908—another Siberian [...]

Molecular Simulations Guide Nanowire Research

Simulation plays a critical role in design—even in very, very, very, small structures. Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are performing simulations at microscopic levels (with help from CEI’s EnSight software) in order to predict the performance of nanowires. Nanowire performance is affected by deformities in the wires. Researcher Jonathan Zimmerman and others at [...]
