'Impact: Earth!' simulator shows effects of asteroid hit
Purdue University has unveiled ''Impact: Earth!'' a new website that allows anyone to calculate the potential damage a comet or asteroid would cause if it hit the Earth. The interactive website is scientifically accurate enough to be used by homeland security and NASA, but user-friendly and visual enough for elementary school students, said Jay Melosh, the distinguished professor of earth and atmospheric sciences and physics at Purdue who led the creation of the impact effects calculator. http:/

An Introduction to Computational Multiphysics: Motivations for Triple-M Modeling
Modern science is increasingly faced with problems of ever greater complexity, straddling across the traditional disciplinary boundaries between physics, chemistry, material science and biology. Computational science is responding to this challenge with a steadfast development of innovative modeling techniques, designed in such a way as to offer an optimal handling of the information transfer procedures connecting the different scales/levels involved in the quantitative description of the aforem

Reflections on an MIT Education
In a neat series of time capsules tagged to his MIT experience, Neil Pappalardo shares his story with MIT graduates in the hope that it will give them “an idea of the possibilities that lie ahead.”

His story begins in 1964, when as a senior majoring in Physics, he decided to pursue a thesis on a

The digital architecture of tomorrow
This paper presents an ongoing research project about the development of the materials and fabrication techniques for a fundamentally new class of architectural composite. This type of composite, which is a representative example of an even broader class of smart architectural material, has the potential to change the design and function of an architectural structure or living environment. As of today, this kind of composite does not exist. Once completed, this will be the first technology on i

Algeria and its Southern Neighbours: Turbulence in the Sahara [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Yvan Guichaoua, Imad Mesdoua | Editor's note: We apologise for the poor quality of this podcast. The South of Algeria belongs to the widely integrated Saharan political economy also composed of large chunks of the Malian and Nigerian territories. As such, Algeria plays a key role in the livelihoods (through licit or illicit means), and geographical social and political mobility of Sahelian communities, using borders as resources and connected to each other through transnational ne

Eve?s Four Faces-Interactive surface configurations
Eve?s Four Faces consists of a series of digitally animated and interactive surfaces. Their content and structure are derived from a collection of sources outside the conventional boundaries of architectural research, namely psychology and the broader spectrum of arts and culture. The investigation stems from a psychological study documenting the attributes and social relationships of four distinct personality prototypes; the ?Individuated?, the ?Traditional?, the ?Conflicted? and the ?Assured?.

Intuitive and Effective Design of Periodic Symmetric Tiles
This paper presents a new approach for intuitive and effective design of periodic symmetric tiles. We observe that planar graphs can effectively represent symmetric tiles and graph drawing provides an intuitive paradigm for designing symmetric tiles. Moreover, based on our theoretical work to represent hexagonal symmetry by rectangular symmetry, we are able to present all symmetric tiles as graphs embedded on a torus and based on simple modulo operations. This approach enables us to develop a si

Reinterpretation or replacement? The effects of the information and communication technologies on ur
The timid question ?Virtual spaces or real places?? forms the core of many debates within the spatial sciences addressing theconsequences of the rapid development of information and communication technologies1 on existing spatial structures. So far several opinions rival each other for the interpretation of current and the prediction of future spatial developments. The spacelessness ofcomputer networks and the possibility to transmit data in real-time have lead visionaries to predict a far-reach
