A supercomputer is a computer that represents the limit of existing processing capacity. Supercomputers are used for calculation-intensive tasks for applications such as quantum physics, weather forecasting, climate research, molecular modeling and physical simulations, from modeling airplanes in wind tunnels to the detonation of nuclear weapons and nuclear fusion.
Renewable energy will win out. That's where the next wave of economic growth lies. By creating market incentives for it, we can get our share. Or we can let politics continue destroying our...
