Rockets Shake And Rattle, So SpaceX Rolls Homegrown CFD

Getting a small group of human beings to Mars and back is no easy task, we learned at the recent GPU Technology Conference in San Jose hosted graphics chip and accelerator maker Nvidia.

A Quantum Leap in Computing, Maybe

Quantum Computing has been a concept since the 1980’s that has remained outside the domain of real-world high performance computing. Through the era of Moore’s Law and exponential progress in feature size, clock rates, and resulting performance, the need for alternative paradigms and technologies has attracted little attention or interest. But there has remained a curiosity among a limited community.
