Recently NSF has provided over $200 million funding for NCAR’s “Yellowstone“, NCSA’s “Blue Waters” and TACC’s “Stampede” supercomputers. Each computer adds value to the other and will provide the nation’s research communities expansive computational capabilities to test scientific hypothesis and produce simulations impacting the science discovery and progress. Read details of real-time applications and usage of each of these supercomputers. Scientific visualizations using NCAR’s Yellowstone supercomputer are freely available.
