Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, and science missions.
REQUESTING COMPUTING TIME AT NASA
If you are a NASA-sponsored scientist or engineer, computing time is available to you at the High-End Computing (HEC) Program's NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 06.06.13 – Tracking a Superstorm
- Running on the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) Discover supercomputer, NASA's GEOS-5 atmosphere model simulated the astonishing track and forceful winds of Hurricane Sandy.
- 05.24.13 – Galaxies Fed by Funnels of Fuel
- Supercomputers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine have helped reveal that galaxies bulk up in mass by feeding off cosmic swirly straws of gas.
- 05.17.13 - Quantum Computing Collaboration Announced
- A quantum computer is being installed at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility as a result of a collaboration among NASA, the Universities Space Research Association (USRA), and Google. They are partnering to assess the potential of quantum computers to perform calculations that are difficult or impossible using conventional supercomputers.
- 05.14.13 – Optimized BLENDER Code Speeds Up Kepler Planet Analyses
- Visualization experts in the NAS Division have improved the BLENDER software package used by the Kepler mission team to validate planet candidates, greatly shortening runtimes on the Pleiades supercomputer.
- 04.28.13 – NASA's Kepler Seeks to Answer: Is Anybody Out There?
- The question "Is anybody out there?" grows more tantalizing with the discovery of each new far-off planet. CBS News' Barry Petersen has been talking to scientists searching for clues.
