Stephen Hawking support for Research Computing Strategy

Searchlighter wants to note that Professor Stephen Hawking sent a letter to David Willetts in support of investment in High Performance Computing.

This was sent in line with the initiative coming from the e-Science Forum for a Strategic Plan for the UK Research Computing Ecosystem.

While it is natural that Stephen Hawking would wish to support the initiative, surely one cannot over-estimate the value of this in taking the time to state his support.

As mentioned previously in ‘Insight‘, Peter Coveney met with David Willetts on this very subject on Wednesday 13 July.
