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).


Solar Superstorms title over image of Sun
06.29.15 - Computational Science and Data Visualization Take the Spotlight in New Solar Superstorms Documentary
A 24-minute, high-resolution science documentary about the dynamics of the Sun features data-driven visualizations from science work done on NASA’s Pleiades and NCSA’s Blue Waters supercomputers.
Visualization of simulated Beta Pictoris disk
06.25.15 - New NASA Supercomputer Model Shows Planet Making Waves in Nearby Debris Disk
The NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) supercomputer hosted a simulation of the planet and debris disk around the nearby star Beta Pictoris revealing that the planet's motion drives spiral waves throughout the disk, a phenomenon that causes collisions among the orbiting debris.
Visualization showing magnetic field lines in a simulation of a ' Jupiter' exoplanet
06.15.15 - Simulating the Interior Dynamics of Stars and Giant Exoplanets
Groundbreaking simulations using NASA's Pleiades supercomputer reveal how internal magnetic forces can influence the behavior of exoplanets and stars.
Visualization of global temperature changes
06.09.15 - NASA Releases Detailed Global Climate Change Projections
NASA has released data from 21 climate models showing how temperature and rainfall patterns worldwide may change through the year 2100 because of growing concentrations of greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere.

05.21.15 - Influential NAS Parallel Benchmarks Paper Selected for SC15 Test of Time Award
The Supercomputing Conference (SC15) Test of Time Award Committee has recognized the 1991 paper "The NAS Parallel Benchmarks - Summary and Preliminary Results." The benchmarks were developed in response to NASA's increasing involvement with massively parallel architectures and quickly became an industry standard.
