QUOTE OF THE DAY

Using our Cholla astrophysics software on an exascale machine, we will be able to run a simulation where we can directly resolve what’s happening in small patches of the galaxy. So instead of having to make assumptions about how the stars are forming and how the supernovae are affecting the galaxy, we can actually just directly simulate that using the physics that we understand. There’s no other computer that’s big enough and has enough computing power to get the resolution that we require.

—Evan Schneider, University of Pittsburgh
