UT Arlington researchers use computer code to better understand exploding stars
Two University of Texas at Arlington researchers want to bridge the gap between what is known about exploding stars and the remnants left behind thousands of years later. So they're trying something new -- using SNSPH, a complex computer code developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Science Daily, Science Newsline, Science Codex, eScience News and Phys.org reported. Carola Ellinger, a post-doctoral researcher at UT Arlington, and Sangwook Park, an assistant professor in the College of Science's physics department, were scheduled to present their research this week on "3D Simulations of Supernovae into the Young Remnant Phase" at the national meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Long Beach, Calif.
Art lecturer honored with Moss/Chumley Artist Award
Stephen Lapthisophon, a UT Arlington senior lecturer in art & art history, won the 2012 Moss/Chumley Artist Award, the Meadows Museum announced. The award is given annually to an outstanding North Texas artist who has exhibited professionally for at least 10 years and has a proven track record as a community advocate for the visual arts. Lapthisophon is a multimedia artist whose work addresses questions of language, history and cultural memory. Many of his projects are site-specific installations that address the sensory world.
