NEWS RELEASES 2020 ARCHIVE
- 12.01.20 - What Will the Climate Be Like When Earth’s Next Supercontinent Forms?
- A simulation study—run at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) and presented at the 2020 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting—suggests that the future arrangement of Earth's supercontinent could dramatically impact the habitability and climate stability of planet.
- 11.16.20 - NASA Research Exhibit to Highlight Science and Engineering Advances at the Virtual SC20 Supercomputing Conference
- From assessing COVID-19’s global impacts to helping NASA return humans to the Moon to searching the cosmos for new exoplanets, researchers from across NASA, with university and industry partners, will highlight their latest advances, enabled by the agency’s supercomputers, in the NASA research exhibit at SC20—the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis. This year, the conference is being held virtually November 9 through 19, 2020.
- 10.20.20 - NASA, Department of Energy Expand on More Than 50 Years of Collaboration
- NASA and the Department of Energy are expanding on more than 50 years of collaboration with a new memorandum of understanding announced Tuesday by NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette. Potential areas for collaboration include high-performance computing, modeling, and simulation.
- 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.
- 06.02.20 - A New Galactic Center Adventure in Virtual Reality
- By combining data from telescopes with supercomputer simulations and virtual reality (VR), a new visualization allows you to experience 500 years of cosmic evolution around the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. The simulations were run on a NASA High-End Computing (HEC) supercomputer located at NASA's Ames Research Center.
- 04.09.20 - NASA Calls on Gamers, Citizen Scientists to Help Map World’s Corals
- NASA invites video gamers and citizen scientists to embark on virtual ocean research expeditions to help map coral reefs around the world. Players’ actions help train NASA's Pleiades supercomputer to recognize corals from any image of the ocean floor, even those taken with less powerful instruments.
