The Living Earth Simulator (LES) is being developed to simulate everything that is happening on Earth.
The ambitious project will be powered by a series of supercomputers and hopes to simulate all manner of things from the spread of diseases to weather patterns in order to help scientists better understand what is happening on the planet.
"An international group of scientists are aiming to create a simulator that can replicate everything happening on Earth - from global weather patterns and the spread of diseases to international financial transactions or congestion on Milton Keynes' roads."
