The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory in suburban Chicago recently held a ceremony to commission its new supercomputer, known as MIRA, which is currently the world's fifth-most powerful supercomputer. But as the Voice of America reports, lawmakers are concerned that the United States is losing ground in international supercomputing, a field the U.S. has dominated for decades. This video from VOA provides a closer look at MIRA, and explores its position on supercomputing's evolving frontier. This video runs about 2 minutes, 30 seconds.
