From the case on your phone to rovers on Mars to vaccines -- supercomputers have played a role in just about everything around us.  And many of those projects have rolled through one of the biggest supercomputing centers in the world -- the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).  In this episode, we talk to undercover superhero Dan Stanzione, executive director of TACC, about the many discoveries and innovations his supercomputers have had a role in, and what it’s like to oversee it all.  Whether it be Rommie Amaro’s recent COVID-19 breakthroughs or assisting emergency responders after a hurricane, Dan and the TACC are making a real difference behind the scenes of society.
