"The Energy Department is announcing plans Wednesday to build the world's fastest civilian computer at a research laboratory in Tennessee with the help of three private computer companies.
The supercomputer to be built at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory will have federal grants totaling $50 million over the initial two years. If successful, it will surpass in sustained computing power a machine unveiled in Japan two years ago."
