Perlmutter

NERSC's newest flagship supercomputer is an HPE Cray pre-exascale system. To highlight NERSC's commitment to advancing research, the new system will be named “Perlmutter” in honor of Saul Perlmutter, an astrophysicist at Berkeley Lab and a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley who shared the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to research showing that the expansion of the universe is accelerating.
