White Dwarf Research Corporation was originally incorporated in Texas in 1999, but officially moved to Colorado in 2009. The business office is presently located in Boulder. For a map of the area, click here.

64 Node Metacomputer

For theoretical work we use Darwin, a 64-node Linux cluster that was specially designed to calculate white dwarf pulsation models. This innovative commodity- hardware parallel computer was originally built in 1998 for a tiny fraction of the cost of a supercomputer. We are currently developing a new metacomputer called Dawkins.

Telescope Sites

For observational work, White Dwarf Research Corporation uses data from the Whole Earth Telescope, an informal collaboration of astronomers at observatories around the globe who cooperate to produce nearly continuous time-series photometry of white dwarfs and similar targets for up to 14 days at a time. This instrument has been operating since 1988, and is now run from headquarters in Delaware.
