"If, somehow, they could paint part of the moon whiter, it would get dirty over time" Robock said
...said Dr JohnJohn Feo, director of the Center for Adaptive Supercomputer Software and Data Intensive Scientific Computing group lead at PNNL. "In addition to providing a natural and obvious pathway for application development, we identified communications and optimization issues that could be addressed with added clarity before the computation steps were even implemented."
