When researchers need to compare complex new genomes; or map new regions of the Arctic in high-resolution detail; or detect signs of dark matter; or make sense of massive amounts of fMRI data, they turn to the high-performance computing and data analysis systems supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
How they pop depends on how inflated they are.
The challenges we face in the decades ahead are many (just think about inequality, or climate change or the fact that still around 800 million people go to bed hungry every day), there is every reason to be positive. Why?
