This month on, we've been highlighting the incredible work being done with supercomputers at the Department's National Labs. Supercomputers are changing the way scientists study the origins of our universe, design new drugs for public health and forecast global weather patterns. The Energy Department's National Labs have some of the most significant high performance computing resources available, including 32 of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world.

In this infographic, we explain some of the complex terms associated with the speed, storage and processing on supercomputers; the game changing work being done with them; and the top 8 supercomputers that call the National Labs home. Learn more about the National Labs and their work in high performance computing.
