The Supercomputing Issue: look what’s inside the current issue of National Security Science magazine

In this issue:

  • The Tip of the Iceberg: Say, what is “under the floor” of a supercomputer?—That floor is the size of a football field. What’s even more amazing is what’s under it.

  • Killing Killer Asteroids—Asteroids have caused mass extinctions and widespread destruction. Can a nuclear explosive destroy the next one before it strikes the Earth?
  • Strategic Deterrence in the 21st Century—The U.S. nuclear weapons capability is second to none, but is it in danger of becoming second to one?
