Brookhaven’s Beastly Supercomputer 
Brookhaven National Laboratory is arming its scientists and engineers with a cutting-edge tool to advance their research. Brookhaven’s Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) and the Chemistry Department will use this big boost in computing power, called Blue Gene/Q, to tease out new ways to put nanoscale materials to work. Blue Gene/Q will decode and map out the complex array of chemical reactions that can occur on a single nanoparticle with greater speed and precision than ever before.
This computer is so big it takes up an enormous room. You’d have to be extremely tall to touch the top of the cabinets holding the computer’s inner workings. Check out our Flickr for some more shots of Blue Gene/Q.
