The new carbon structure, fullerene is a very interesting molecule,
and it is expected to be a superior potentially new material.
This work addresses a classical Molecular Dynamics simulation
for making clear the formation process of fullerene.
Especially, we are paying our attention to
carbon clusters' growth in a dilute gas-phase.
In order to execute large-scale simulations, we parallelized
the carbon MD simulation.
We also represent parallelization results of MD program
for gas-phase with very low density.
