Scientists in Japan say they have created the world's second fastest supercomputer. It is the "K" computer, and it comes in just behind IBM's Sequoia computer, currently the world's fastest.

The Sequoia, which is used by the U.S. Department of Energy, is about 1.5 times faster than the K supercomputer. The K is capable of carrying out 10 quadrillion computing operations per second. It cost around $1.5 billion dollars to develop.
