Supercomputers Simulate Stars, Cars, Hurricanes, and Blood

From the American Physical Society, May 2009: "Recreating existing complex clouds is exactly what Fuqing Zhang of Penn State University is doing. He has been taking Doppler radar information on the paths of hurricanes crossing the Gulf of Mexico in hopes of predicting where they’ll hit the coast. This approach to forecasting relies primarily on probabilities derived from estimated cloud turbulence models."
