Simulate this 
- No, but it can assist in the US' goal of world domination. Anonymous101

- To begin with, it will simulate the aging of a nuclear weapon, so that they can figure out how many and when will become a "duds" -- but as in horeshoes and handgrenades (and atom bombs), a miss is as good as a mile WurmWoode (talk) 19:30, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Is this really the best use? 
Surely this computer could have been used to find a way to end poverty or something, instead of finding a way to kill people. Anonymous101

Future purpose 
Once the technology is proven, and AMD implements the "poor" man's version, or before then, is there any indication from Los Alamos or IBM as to purposing it to Global Warming analysis -- surely it can do a better job than Al Gore? Or timeshares with other supercomputer university/commercial projects?WurmWoode (talk) 19:36, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
So in the past 50 years we've gone from 2 rectangles bouncing a little square from one side to the other, to being able to talk directly to a lifelike-quality digitalized version of someone that's sitting on the other end of the world (think... Mass Multiple Online Role Playing Games) while blasting monsters with realistically-looking high-tech rocket launchers.
And yet when it comes to fighting poverty, what have we accomplished? When it comes to third world development, what good have we done? When it comes to protecting our natural environment, have we done ANY good at all?
