Mira is a superstar or, more precisely, a supercomputer that will be arriving at Argonne National Laboratory. The new technology may help build safer cars, develop new medical therapies, advance airplane design and create better climate models, according to Michael Papka, deputy associate laboratory director for Computing, Environment and Life Sciences at Argonne. Researchers from around the world, including those at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, can apply to use Mira’s mighty processing power for their research.
