Scientific evidence indicates that the laws of physics are the same in systems throughout the entire Universe – whether those systems be microscopic, or intergalactic. Thus, the same principles apply here on Earth as in distant galaxies. Our understanding of, for example, fluid dynamics or gravity can be applied across boundaries that otherwise make different systems seem unrelated. In this presentation, we demonstrate how the application of supercomputing makes these systems – spanning vast ranges in scale from blood flow to global weather and climate and all the way to galaxy formation – accessible to science. We also demonstrate how their seemingly endless complexity requires number-crunching power of modern supercomputers which has only become available within the past few decades.
