Welcome to the website of the project for the National Cosmology Grid, based at the Cambridge eScience centre, within the Department of Applied Maths and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.

Since the beginning of 2002, the National Cosmology Grid has linked the COSMOS supercomputer (housed in DAMTP) with servers at consortium sites in the Institute of Astronomy, the Cavendish Laboratory and throughout the UK (Imperial College and the Universities of Manchester, Oxford, Portsmouth and Sussex). This project will demonstrate the capability of grid technology in the management and visualization of cosmological data sets over local and trans-national networks. A key goal is to implement and assist in the development of real-time remote and collaborative visualization tools with the US National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and our industrial partner, SGI.
