Being fast with the world's fastest computer

These are numbers. "In the world of computers, it promises to be the biggest, fastest, and most mindboggling, of them all. Officials in Japan yesterday announced that they intend to build a supercomputer that will operate 73 times faster than the current top computer. Number one at the moment is IBM's Blue Gene computer, in California, capable of handling 136.8 trillion mathematical calculations a second, or 136.8 teraflops. The Japanese machine, which could cost up to US$900m, would leave it standing."

Pretty fast, I would say. And think of the effects on research, new health and pharmaceutical developments, nanotechnology, and so on. Amazing possibilities.
