World in a box: Exploring Jupiter-like atmospheres with supercomputers
Giant planets have a lot to teach us about how other solar systems work, how chemistry functions under extreme conditions, and how weather happens. Unfortunately, you can't send people or rovers to them, and many are just too far away to study in great detail. So we turn to another laboratory: supercomputer simulations. Come learn about how we wrangle computers to learn about what's going on on worlds we'll never see or touch.
