More Supercomputer Time for Simulation Research

Wired Science reports that starting in 2010, the Department of Energy will make available to the science community at large additional processor time on two of its supercomputers. A total of 1.3 billion processor hours will be set aside on Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Cray XT "Jaguar" and Argonne National Laboratory's IBM Blue Gene/P "Intrepid." These two supercomputers are among the most powerful in the world and are dedicated to open scientific research. The additional research hours will allow astrophysicists, biologists, and other scientists to perform complex simulations involving multiple simultaneous physical phenomena.
