Supercomputing Treaties

Today’s random thought: the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty was the most important development in the history of supercomputing. It has forced the continuous development of ever-more powerful supercomputers to simulate the decay of weapons that can no longer be actually tested.

Of course, these computers might just be a welfare program for high-performance chip designers. YMMV.
