By exploiting the full computational power of the Japanese supercomputer, K computer, researchers from the RIKEN HPCI Program for Computational Life Sciences, the Okinawa Institute of Technology Graduate University (OIST) in Japan and Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany have carried out the largest general neuronal network simulation to date.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have managed to perform record simulations using all 1,572,864 cores of Sequoia, the largest supercomputer in the world.
Black holes shape the growth and death of the stars around them via powerful gravitational pulses and explosive ejections of energy.
The data's in from the simulated Mars mission in which six trained astronauts were shut up for a year and a half. And it seems that long-term missions of this kind do indeed lead to problems for the crew.
German scientists say they've found a way to tell whether or not our universe is a giant computer simulation - and that there's evidence to suggest that it is.
The majority of planets form when a molecular cloud collapses into a young star.
Indeed, the leftover gas and dust form a disk around the star, with the particulates inside the disk colliding and coalescing.
After a year and a half locked up in a box, six 'astronauts' have finally finished their simulated trip to Mars.
Scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz have used a NASA supercomputer to create what they say is the most accurate and detailed simulation of the universe ever.
Astrophysicists have for the first time created a computer model of galaxy formation that results in a spiral galaxy like our own.
After 230 days in isolation, an international team is about to 'land' on Mars.
