Teraflops computing will allow us to construct predictive models of the formation and evolution of structure in the Universe, including galaxies and clusters of galaxies.

The big question is what kind of universe do we live in? An open universe that will expand forever? Or a closed universe that will come to a turning point and then fall back on itself, and end in a Big Crunch? These kinds of models are our best hope of an swering that question.
