Simulating Hostile Mergers

Conceptual illustration of neutron stars merging.
In the wake of the first-ever detections of neutron star mergers, scientists computing at NERSC are working to construct more accurate, detailed 3D models. Simulating these cataclysmic events helps scientists probe lingering questions about the nature of space, time, and matter.
