High-End Computing Program

Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology missions.


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).

11.25.22 - 2022 Road Trip: NASA Ames Takes Off
In this interview with HPCwire contributing editor Dan Olds, NAS Division Chief Piyush Mehrotra talks all things supercomputing — from global ocean simulations to modular facilities, cloud applications, and new high-end computing system architectures at NASA’s Ames Research Center.

11.22.22 - 5 Ways Supercomputing is Key to NASA Mission Success
Whether developing new technologies for landing on other planets, improving air travel here at home, or more realistically simulating global weather and climate, supercomputing is key to the success of NASA missions. These advances and more were on display in the agency’s hybrid exhibit during SC22, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis.

11.17.22 - Secrets of Sunspots and Solar Magnetic Fields Investigated in NASA Supercomputing Simulations
A computational analysis of data about the Sun’s structure and dynamics from two NASA spacecraft, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory and the Solar Dynamics Observatory, is helping researchers better understand the current sunspot cycle.

11.17.22 - NASA Study: Massive Volcanism May Have Altered Ancient Venus' Climate
Volcanic activity lasting hundreds to thousands of centuries and erupting massive amounts of material may have helped transform Venus from a temperate and wet world to the acidic hothouse it is today, a NASA paper suggests. NCCS resources supported the research.

11.15.22 - NASA Goddard Scientists Create Black Hole Jets with NCCS Discover Supercomputer
Leveraging the NCCS, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center scientists ran 100 simulations exploring jets — narrow beams of energetic particles — that emerge at nearly light speed from supermassive black holes.
