Come to the National Petascale Computing Facility for a first-hand look at Blue Waters, one of the fastest supercomputers in the world!  With a peak speed of more than 13 petaflops, Blue Waters is capable of performing quadrillions of calculations every second.

In addition to viewing Blue Waters, you can also see the infrastructure required for this powerful machine.

This is a self-guided tour.  Come any time between 9a and 3p and stay as little or as long as you’d like. NCSA staff will be available throughout the building to answer questions.

Location: NPCF is west of State Farm Center, at the corner of Oak St. and St Mary’s Road
