A supercomputer is a computer with a high-level computational capacity. Performance of a supercomputer is measured in floating point operations per second (FLOPS). As of 2015, there are supercomputers which can perform up to quadrillions of FLOPS. Supercomputer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org › wiki › Super...

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
After a year of consultations and over 4 million public comments, President Obama's Clean Power Plan will be finalised early next week.

In honor of tonight's 'Blue Moon,' astronaut Scott Kelly aboard the International Space Station posted this image and wrote, "TGIF Here's a preview of tonight's rare celestial surprise. #BlueMoon on the rise. #YearInSpace."
'Once in a Blue Moon' typically means rare or absurd. This year, it means tonight! According to modern folklore, the second full moon in a month is a "Blue Moon." But of course that doesn't mean it's necessarily blue. Step outside at sunset, look east and see what color presents itself.

Sixty European science and engineering students from 19 of ESA’s 22 Member States recently attended the 2015 Alpbach Summer School, held in the beautiful Austrian Tyrol. This year’s meeting, held from 14 to 23 July, focused on quantum and fundamental physics in space.
During their stay at Alpbach students attended lectures and participated in workshops. They were divided into four teams and asked to design their own innovative mission to study how satellite missions could help develop and enrich quantum physics research, and see how future satellite missions could benefit from quantum physics in general.
The space missions designed by the students looked at how to make discoveries in gravitational wave astrophysics, as well as how to verify the fundamental principle of equivalence in Einstein’s theory of General Relativity. On the last day of this 10-day learning experience, each team presented their mission design to an expert review panel chaired by Dr. Roger Bonnet, as well as their fellow students, tutors, and lecturers.
Dr. Bonnet was very impressed by the quality of the space mission designs the students presented: 'The jury was very impressed and had the feeling that a new scientific community had risen above the horizon - a community that will increase the number of space users and that will benefit from the high potential of applications in this new field, both in industry and in science. Once again the Alpbach Summer School has created a miracle - all of the teams have made a strong impression on the jury because of their ability to get acquainted with a topic in just a few days.
The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities. The resolution (A/RES/65/275) places particular emphasis on involving young people, as future leaders, in community activities that include different cultures and promote international understanding and respect for diversity. The Day is also intended to support the goals and objectives of the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace and the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010). To mark the International Day of Friendship the UN encourages governments, international organizations and civil society groups to hold events, activities and initiatives that contribute to the efforts of the international community towards promoting a dialogue among civilizations, solidarity, mutual understanding and reconciliation.
Air safety investigators have a “high degree of confidence” that the photo of aircraft debris washed up on a remote Indian Ocean island is from a wing component unique to the Boeing 777, a U.S. official told the Associated Press late Wednesday. The disclosure fueled speculation it could be from Malaysian Air Flight MH370, which vanished in March 2014.
