Blue Waters Supercomputer running 30 projects


Urbana – The world's fastest supercomputer is now up and running at the U of I.


The people behind the 300 million Blue Waters Supercomputer project in Champaign were celebrating the achievement this afternoon. In 2011 it looked like the project might never be finished. Now it is running about 30 projects.


The supercomputer is exploring everything from earthquakes to space satellites.
