 Linux cluster goes Orbital

"Orbital Sciences senior engineer Heather Holst and her colleagues are smart. That's to be expected, since they work for a company that designs and tests rockets. This highly intelligent group of people created makeshift clusters in order to perform a demanding simulation technique called Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). There was only one problem.... CFD looks at fluid flow, which happens continuously all around us as we breathe, drink, move, and work; and it happens as machines and systems function as they were created to do. If a machine's design is faulty, fluid flow can negatively affect its performance."
