  1. Supercomputer Simulation of Magnetic Field Loops on the SunRead the original story

    3 hrs ago | Space Ref

    Magnetic fields emerging from below the surface of the sun influence the solar winda stream of particles that blows continuously from the sun's atmosphere through the solar system. Researchers at NASA and its university partners are using high-fidelity computer simulations to learn how these magnetic fields emerge, heat the sun's outer atmosphere and produce sunspots and flares.

    Yesterday | EETimes

    Yes computing power is presented by this architecture but it really requires too many efforts to make the best out of it by making the power available to the operating systems by designing proper instruction set, which the parent company has left on the programmers. What I estimate is this will not remain open source but the companies who are modifying the instructions sets will demand the cost of modification, may be in terms of fees for support.
