  1. I did some reading up on this new supercomputer and I think the rest of the world has much to benenfit from it. The Earth Simulator has out American scientists at a 10-100 fold disadvantage in weather studies. Not only can the Earth Simulator track global sea temp. and earth’s crustal movements but it can predict for example earthquake epicenters and map their damage to figure out what structures would need reinforcement (dams, buildings, highways etc.). It can also plot the course of things like AIDS in a given region and speed up the recovery of new drugs by simulating the reaction between a chemical and the human body. Already in the wake of the Japanese Earth Simulator project the IBM Corp. is involved in a 290 million dollar contract with the US Govt. to build two new supercomputers by the year 2004 that would be nearly three times faster than the Earth Simulator. It will be very interesting to see where this amazing computation of variables will take us.
