IBM Chips Used to look for "Origins of the Universe"

International Business Machines Corp. (traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol IBM) and a major astronomy organization, ASTRON, are working together to develop computer chips that will be used in antennas for a prototype telescope for the development of the world’s largest radio astronomy telescope, the Square Kilometer Array (SKA). According to the IBM news release, this telescope will look at black holes, developing galaxies, and "origins of the universe more than 13 billion years ago."
