environment. Some of them are even cute, like Lauren in the middle. :)
NSC is the Navier-Stokes Supercomputer, a rather ingenious vector
supercomputer that was specifically designed to crunch the Navier-Stokes
equations, which are more-or-less the cornerstone of fluid dynamics. It was
designed for NASA via a grant, at the Moody Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at
Princeton University. The project was started in (if I recall correctly) 1985.
