Cosmos and Computers: Gary Ferland discusses infrastructure upgrades for studying space.

The University of Kentucky recently announced big upgrades to its supercomputing infrastructure. This means more power for researchers across the campus working on some of the questions that have puzzled us the longest. 

One such researcher is Professor Gary Ferland of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Since the late 1970s, he’s been using computer modeling software to carry out experiments that would otherwise be impossible. With his widely used program Cloudy which simulates clouds of interstellar matter out in space and UK’s high-tech supercomputing infrastructure, Ferland and his students have been able to help answer some of the biggest questions facing astronomers as well as society.

Go Small White! Rat Basketball in Psychology 450

When people think of UK basketball, they tend to think of Wildcats, not lab rats... except for students in Fall 2012's Psychology 450: Learning. In the class, students used clickers and treats to train rats to pick up and 'dunk' a small ball to demonstrate how learning occurs. In this podcast, we interviewed some students from the class and watched some rat basketball from the sidelines with Kristina Pattison, the instructor.
