Title: A Long History of Supercomputing

As part of its national security science mission, Los Alamos National Laboratory and HPC have a long, entwined history dating back to the earliest days of computing. From bringing the first problem to the nation’s first computer to building the first machine to break the petaflop barrier, Los Alamos holds many “firsts” in HPC breakthroughs. Today, supercomputers are integral to stockpile stewardship and the Laboratory continues to work with vendors in developing the future of HPC.
