Super computers have simulate the effect of the trillion-ton nuclear bomb to destroy collision-Earth asteroids
The U.S. government's Los Alamos National Laboratory, scientists conducted a computer simulation. In the simulation, they launch a 1 trillion-ton bomb, bombardment of a flying giant asteroid of the Earth, with a powerful explosive power to destroy the asteroid, and thus save the planet.
Los Alamos National Laboratory is located in New Mexico, part of the U.S. Department of Energy. In this laboratory, the scientists used a super computer simulation of a nuclear bomb bombardment of asteroids, in order to understand the effectiveness of this approach. The simulated asteroid is 1650 feet long (about 500 meters), to use nuclear bombs to reach a trillion-ton is about 50 times that of the United States during World War II atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Japan.

China's first self-developed petaflop super computer launchs into applications
After three months of trial operation, all domestic CPU and system software to build China's first petaflop super computer, the three-meter-tall machines are actually part of a single working unit, the Sunway-Bluelight super computer, installed in the super computer center which indicates that China, following the United States, Japan,being the world's third country using self-CPU to build a petaflop super computer.

What Is a Super-Computer ?
Super-computer usually means buildup by hundreds and thousands or even more processors , and can calculate the large and complex computer issues the ordinary PC and the server can not complete.To help you better understand the computational speed of super-computers we compared the normal computer operation speed of the adults' walking speed, then the super-computer reached the rocket speed. In such a computing speed of the premise that people through the numerical simulation can predict and explain the natural phenomena previously inaccessible experiments. Read more
