Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology 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).
- 09.18.20 - NASA Hydrological Forecast System Supports Food and Water Security in Africa and Middle East
- The new NASA Hydrological Forecast and Analysis System (NHyFAS) joins the U.S. Agency for International Development's Famine Early Warning System Network to help Africa and the Middle East better prepare for droughts and related disasters. NHyFAS runs monthly at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 09.16.20 - NASA Missions Spy First Possible ‘Survivor’ Planet Hugging White Dwarf Star
- An international team of astronomers using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and retired Spitzer Space Telescope has reported what may be the first intact planet found closely orbiting a white dwarf star. The NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division processed the TESS data products employed in the study, published in Nature.
- 08.28.20 - NASA Scientists Explore Venus Habitable Climate Scenarios at NCCS
- NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) scientists leveraged NCCS supercomputing resources for several months to model a hypothetical climate history for Venus over the past 4.2 billion years.
- 08.19.20 – NASA Is Developing an All-Electric X-57 X-Plane: A Cleaner Way to Fly
- NASA researchers are using the NAS Facility's Pleiades supercomputer to understand and predict the aerodynamic forces around the X-57 "Maxwell" electric aircraft, as well as create an accurate model for flight simulation training.
- 08.10.20 - NCCS GPU Cluster Now Live for NASA-Funded Scientists!
- The NCCS announces a new resource for NASA-funded scientists: a graphics processing unit (GPU) cluster running on the ADAPT Science Cloud and specifically built for accelerating artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) workloads using GPUs.
- 08.07.20 - NCCS Spatial Analytics Platform Helps the GFED Project Speed Up Global and Local Fire Analysis
- NASA scientists are using the NCCS Spatial Analytics Platform and its Esri ArcGIS Server resources to provide a new, publicly shared data visualization analysis resource, the Global Fire Emissions Database (GFED).
