The ultimate answer Europe's fastest supercomputer unveiled in Germany

The "Jugene," capable of 1,000,000,000,000,000 calculations per second, ranks behind the "Roadrunner" and "Jaguar" computers in the United States, said Kosta Schinarakis from the Juelich research centre, where the computer is located.

Jugene will be used for a wide variety of operations, including research on fuel cells for electric cars, weather forecasting and the origins of the universe, the centre said.

The machine is no ordinary PC, requiring 295,000 processors located in 72 lockers each the size of a telephone box.

Interesting how these supercomputers are popping up all over the place. I wonder how long it will be before these 'super' computers are put to their real use and that is to increase TPTB power and financial status. Whilst we the little people suffer, the yahoo headline enticed me to look at this article, it said that this computer will be used to search the origins of the universe? funny how all these searches seem to be taking place right now before 2012?
