Author: JT Smith

Wired.com reports on the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana's announcement Tuesday NCSA will install two IBM Linux clusters, creating the the fourth fastest supercomputer in the world.

"NCSA's new clusters will have 2 teraflops of computing power and will be used by researchers to study some
of the most fundamental questions of science, such as the nature of gravitational waves first predicted by
Albert Einstein in his Theory of Relativity."
