NASA’s Advanced Supercomputing Division showed our tour group the hyperwall-2 with its quarter-billion pixel display measuring 23 x 10 feet. It’s the world’s highest-resolution scientific visualization environment.

It’s connected to 2.9 petaflops of compute via 65 miles of cabling (the world’s largest InfiniBand network).

Here’s a video I took of it in action. I used a 16mm lens on the Mark II to take the wide-angle perspective.

Here you see surface current speeds from a 3D ocean state model, with lateral storm waves and fluttering pockets of surface gravity waves.
