I would say that it's because it crosses almost every industry. It's touched everybody in the world; whether you're doing DNA sequencing, whether you're doing oil exploration, whether we're doing deep, NASA-type exploration within our universe. All of these things are directly related to supercomputing, high-performance computing. And it could be as simple as weather modeling. That's one of the most complex models that we have on the planet, and we're still not very good at it.
