A team of 12 Chinese researchers have won this year's Gordon Bell Prize, the world's top award in the field of supercomputing. This is the first time Chinese researchers have been awarded the prize.

They've been honored for developing a method for calculating atmospheric dynamics, which could help improve weather predictions. The method is based on the function of a Chinese supercomputer, named Sunway TaihuLight. It is currently the world's fastest supercomputer.

What the TaihuLight computes in 1 minute is equal to what everybody in the world calculates on a calculator in 32 years.
