Plans proceed for Cheyenne supercomputer

We are all very excited about the new supercomputer that's planned for a site outside Cheyenne.

Last week, The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) announced the selection of an architectural design team for "a supercomputing center dedicated to advancing scientists' understanding of climate, weather, and other Earth and atmospheric processes."

NCAR sent along this digital version of the proposed design:

Here's sneak peek at some of the equipment that will be used at this super-high-tech facility:

"We are pleased to be moving forward on this world-class, collaborative endeavor," says NCAR Director Eric Barron. "We are advancing an era of scientific progress and discovery through a partnership that will deliver top-notch resources to the world's research community."

We live in exciting times.
