The National Science Foundation has renewed a $4 million grant to researchers at 13 institutions working on the Jetscape collaboration, a computer simulation project designed to help scientists better understand high-energy nuclear collisions that form a Quark-Gluon Plasma. Lead investigator and Wayne State University professor Abhijit Majumder says the grant "will allow the Jetscape tool to broaden and evolve into a much more elaborate simulator ... which could be applied to a variety of future experiments, such as at FAIR in Germany and the Electron-Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Lab."
