Strange things happen at ultracold temperatures, when thermal energy is removed from a system and what remains is only the intrinsic energy of the particles in it. So-called quantum systems are the subject of intense curiosity, because of the interesting materials they have yielded.

Georgia Tech has developed a new way of mining data from climate data sets that is more self-contained than traditional tools. The methodology brings out commonalities of data sets without as much expertise from the user, allowing scientists to trust the data and get more robust — and transparent — results.

Space mission designers from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and mathematicians from Georgia Tech and Yeshiva University are gathering for a four-day workshop. The participants will work together in using mathematical tools to lower the fuel consumption of spacecraft through trajectory design.
Blue crab and mud crabs - horizontal

Mud crabs hide for their lives if blue crabs, which prey upon them, pee anywhere near them. Pinpointing urine compounds for the first time that warn the mud crabs of predatory peril initiates a new level of understanding of how chemicals invisibly regulate undersea wildlife and ecosystems.
2018 MLK Sunday Supper
January 8, 2018
For the sixth year in a row, the Georgia Tech community will partake of a community meal to discuss the life and legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. The meal is called Sunday Supper, even though it takes place during the workweek. The gathering evokes Sunday dinners of yore, when two or more generations of family and friends shared a comforting meal. It was a time to exchange stories, learn family histories, and discuss current events or concerns.
