National Exascale Day - October 18

 

National Exascale Day on October 18th celebrates the scientists and researchers who make breakthrough discoveries in medicine, materials sciences, energy and beyond with the help of some of the fastest supercomputers in the world,

National Exascale Day honors the people who ask big questions and use big computers and advanced technology to find the answers. 

 

Exascale is defined as "a quintillion computations per second." To put it into personal perspective, if all 7.7 billion people on earth each completed one calculation per second, it would take over 4 years. An exascale computer can complete a quintillion computations in 1 second.

 
 
 
When science discovers and innovates in less time, it realizes good outcomes sooner. For example, it can mean more people survive cancer, deplete fewer natural resources and enjoy more healthy food. 
 
Here are some Fun Facts About Exascale. 
  • Exascale computing means a computing system that can perform at least one exaflops ― or one quintillion (a billion billion) calculations per second. 
  • It would take 40,000 years for one quintillion gallons of water to spill over Niagara Falls.
  • The Milky Way galaxy is 1 quintillion kilometers wide.
  • The human brain contains 100 billion neurons – to reach one quintillion would require 10,000 people!
  • Exascale computers will be roughly a million times more powerful than the average laptop we use every day.
