Meet Mira, the Supercomputer That Makes Universes

Found this really interesting article and interview about this new supercomputer that is supposed to go beyond what we have discovered. 

In October, the world’s third fastest supercomputer, Mira, is scheduled to run the largest, most complex universe simulation ever attempted. The simulation will cram more than 12 billion years worth of cosmic evolution into just two weeks, tracking trillions of particles as they slowly coalesce into the web-like structure that defines our universe on a large scale.
