NPCF Open House welcomes 1,000

More than 1,000 people visited the University of Illinois’ National Petascale Computing Facility, touring the state-of-the-art building and learning more about the supercomputers it will house. The building is home to Blue Waters, a supercomputer capable of performing 10 quadrillion calculations every second. Scientists will use Blue Waters to better understand a wide range of phenomena, from the formation of tornadoes to the complex workings of cells in our body.
