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).
- 11.15.23 - Modeling Turbofan Engines to Understand Aircraft Noise
- Airplane engines are loud—just ask anyone who lives near an airport. Using the Pleiades supercomputer at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility at the agency’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley, researchers have developed software that can model different engine configurations in a more timely and economic manner.
- 11.14.23 - Rocket Exhaust on the Moon: NASA Supercomputers Reveal Surface Effects
- Through Artemis, NASA plans to explore more of the Moon than ever before with human and robotic missions on the lunar surface. Researchers at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center ran simulations on high-end computing systems at the NAS facility to help mission planners better understand how future spacecraft engine plumes will interact with the Moon’s surface.
- 11.13.23 - Five Ways NASA Supercomputing Takes Missions from Concept to Reality
- NASA high-end computing plays a key role in taking many agency missions from concept to application in the real world. From increasing accuracy of global weather forecasts, to designs for future air taxis, to parachute design tests for landing spacecraft, our supercomputing resources and experts are driving science and engineering advances for the benefit of humanity.
- 11.09.23 - NASA Science and Engineering Showcased at SC23
- Check out the NASA@SC23 website to see eye-catching images and videos, and learn about the exciting science and engineering achievements being highlighted this year at the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis, November 13–17 in Denver—all made possible by NASA high-end computing!
- 11.01.23 - NASA Flights Link Methane Plumes to Tundra Fires in Western Alaska
- In a new NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) study, researchers found that methane hot spots were roughly 29% more likely to occur in tundra that had been scorched by wildfire in the past 50 years compared to unburned areas. The study leveraged high-end computing resources at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 10.23.23 - New Study Shows Surprising Effects of Fire in North America’s Boreal Forests
- Using a first-of-its-kind approach to analyze satellite imagery from boreal forests over the last three decades, Northern Arizona University (NAU) and Woodwell Climate Research Center scientists found that fire may be changing the face of the region in a way researchers did not previously anticipate. The study leveraged the Google Earth Engine cloud computing platform, the NCCS ABoVE Science Cloud, and NAU’s high-performance computing cluster Monsoon.
