Results from the FIRE project have been covered in several news articles and press releases, including:
- Graduate Student Zachary Hafen Wins Award in the 2016 Northwestern Scientific Images Contest. Hafen’s One Galaxy, Multiple Perspectives image is based on a FIRE simulation and is displayed at several locations in the Chicago area, including in the rotunda of the widely-visited Museum of Science and Industry.
Hafen’s image received significant press coverage, including an interview of Science in Society’s Sara Grady on WTTW Chicago Tonight.
- Recreating Our Galaxy in a Supercomputer, a Caltech news article on the Latte simulation, with a video featuring FIRE team members Phil Hopkins and Andrew Wetzel:
