The nonbaryonic matter generally assumed to dominate large aggregates of stars and gas almost always shares a common center of mass with the ordinary matter we can see. But a titanic collision can force them apart.

More than a year after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans campuses are faced with smaller enrollments, reduced faculty sizes, pinched budgets–and disgruntlement about how they’re handling the recovery.

Physics Today 59 (11), 30 (2006); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.2435637

With New Orleans and the Gulf Coast still suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the NSB wants to reduce vulnerability to future storms through increased research.
