The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre would like to congratulate the scientists across the world whose efforts have led to the observational of gravitational waves. The recent announcement of observed waves by Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors represents the results of decades of hard work and cutting edge research. The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is proud to be a part of its efforts through support provided to WA scientists who have been major contributors to this research, with Pawsey users from The University of Western Australia (UWA) being part of the international project team. We would like to acknowledge the work of UWA’s Professor David Blair and team members Professor Linqing Wen, Professor David Coward, Professor Li Ju, Associate Professor Chunnong Zhao and Dr Eric Howell. An example of the work conducted using Pawsey resources can be found in this case study..
