NCSA’s National Petascale Computing Facility is a state-of-the-art 88,000 square-foot facility housing supercomputers used by scientific researchers and one third of Fortune 50 Industries. NCSA’s Blue Waters Supercomputer is one of the largest 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 in Illinois and from around the world use this University of Illinois supercomputer to learn about Alzheimer’s disease, tornadoes, earthquakes, colliding galaxies, and other areas of scientific research. Tours (45 min.) are FREE and are scheduled by request at ncsa.illinois.edu/about/facilities/tour and also check out their 3D Scientific Visualizations!
