Helping to ensure that happens is the non-trivial task of the U.S. Exscale Computing Project (ECP) whose mission is to foster development of the exascale-ready software ecosystem including science applications required. At today's announcement of plans to build the $600 million, 1.5 exaflops Frontier supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, organizers also presented a glimpse into some of the science Frontier may tackle..."
