World's Most Beautiful Supercomputer

This amazing piece of technology is installed in a former chapel at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center.

It's called "MareNostrum" and it is currently the largest supercomputer in Europe and the 9th largest in the world.

Mare Nostrum is indeed "our sea", and it was the name given to the Mediterranean sea during the roman and bizantine periods. Therefore, it was considered appropriate for a supercomputer in a city on the Mediterranean coast.

Reminds me much of the "computing center" at my alma mater:

It had formerly been a large stone chapel when that part of the campus was part of an adjacent seminary. It always struck me a bit ironic that the geeks at a technical school now "pay worship" to the computer housed therein.
