Supercomputer outreach video now released

This video features Aegi. Aegi is a little emperor penguin from Antartica who embarks on a journey to learn more about climate change and its impacts on the Southern Hemisphere. In this short road movie, we see Aegi travel on the Korean ice-breaker Araon and visit the Cray factory in Wisconsin, where supercomputers for climate research are being built. She then follows the transport of one of these impressive machines to the city of Daejeon in South Korea. The Cray XC50 supercomputer will be installed at the headquarter of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) and will serve climate experts of the IBS Center for Climate Physics in their research. Along with her adventurous journey, Aegi meets climate scientists, supercomputer engineers and IT experts from South Korea and she experiences the well-known Korean hospitality. More adventures to come …. stay tuned.
