Super Computers

Super computer is an extremely powerful computer capable of manipulating huge amounts of data in a relatively short time. It has huge storage capacity and very fast input/output capability. It has multiple processors, often functioning in parallel (simultaneously). The speed of a supercomputer is generally measured in "FLOPS" (Floating Point Operations Per Second). Supercomputer is used to design automobiles, aircrafts and spacecraft's; to forecast the weather and global climate; to design new drugs and chemical compounds; and to make calculations that help scientists understand the properties of particles that make up atoms as well as the behavior and evolution of stars and galaxies. Supercomputer is also used extensively by the military for weapons and defense systems research, and for encrypting and decoding sensitive intelligence information.
