3 Computer Simulations that Changed The World (And 2 That Are on the…

Computer simulations have already massively transformed our ability to study complicated situations and events. We can study the effects of disasters without having to suffer through the real thing, and we can test out solutions. Running simulated events on powerful computers, based on real-life factors, lets… » 7/06/12 12:15pm 7/06/12 12:15pm

Living Earth Simulator aims to predict everything that's happening on…
