HPC in the Hayden Planetarium show

VizWorld reported yesterday about the HPC simulations behind the graphics in the Hayden Planetarium show, which includes a numerical simulation and visualization of a sunspot

The researchers then used TACC’s Ranger supercomputer to solve complex solar equations for each of 268 million points spaced 20- to 30- miles apart within the virtual domain. This involved processing approximately a terabyte of data and took several days to run on 512 processors.
