The Earth has a shield which can protect it from damaging solar particles. However, this shield can be infiltrated and the result can be a disruption of power grids and communications networks, and radiation on Earth. Researchers using supercomputers at the National Institute for Computational Sciences are creating a topological map of Earth’s magnetosphere, allowing them to closely study how space weather affects our magnetosphere.
An article in The Times of India features China’s Tianhe-2 supercomputer, aka Milkyway-2, which recently measured at speeds of nearly
Using supercomputing resources provided by the National Institute for Computational Sciences, a research team has made discoveries using computer modeling and simulations that have overturned longstanding, widely held beliefs about black holes.
