Powering science

The MIT High Performance Computing Facility powers MIT research behind the scenes.

There’s only one place you find research on the Higgs boson and the quark-gluon plasma; ocean and climate modeling; ship hull design; molecular modeling of polymers; gravitational waves; and more — all in one 2,000 square-foot room. That place is MIT’s High Performance Research Computing Facility (HPRCF): the place where the numbers get run.
