Blue Waters is one of the largest supercomputers in the world—it would take a human being millions of years to do the quadrillions of calculations that Blue Waters completes in a single second! Scientists and engineers across the country use this University of Illinois supercomputer to learn about Alzheimer’s disease, tornadoes, earthquakes, and colliding galaxies. Tours (45 min.) are FREE, scheduled by request Mon-Fri, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
