H1N1 Virus Simulated

Our  understanding of the universe is expanding in all directions, expanding outwards as we see more and more of the cosmos and inwardly as we learn more about the nano world. In the nano world the tools for capturing the action shots are improving but there are still a number of destinations we are unable to explore. Organic organisms – for example, influenza virus – are too delicate for the standard tools of nano exploration :: Read the full article »»»»


The 3 Most Powerful Supercomputers in the Galaxy

The pinnacle of computer technology is the supercomputer.  Never mind gaming rigs like the Alienware Area 51, if one of these babies were ever used for gaming, they’d blow all competition out of their  water cooled existence. These systems are powerful enough that they have their own unit of measurement for their processing speed – the petaFLOPS – FLoating point OPerations per Second – odd name, but you can’t deny the power it represents – trillions to quadrillions of operations every nanosecond.

[Just so we don’t get in trouble with the noids that know, a FLOPS is not an actual measured unit. an expression like {}_{1\,\mathrm{flops}} is actually interpreted as {}_{f_{flop} = 1\,\mathrm{s}^{-1}\,\Leftrightarrow\, n_{flops} = 1}]

These 3 supercomputers stand out above all others as the best of the best, fastest of the uberfast. Curiously, all of these systems run Linux, wink, wink  :: Read the full article »»»»
