Caption: Supersonic turbulence in the outer envelope of a red giant star. Using NCSA’s 64-processor prototype Itanium cluster, this 1-billion-cell turbulent flow simulation was created by Paul Woodward and his colleagues at the University of Minnesota’s Laboratory for Computational Science and Engineering.
