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).


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.
Cross-section of frame from animation of carbon fiber felt material
05.06.15 - 3D Animations Provide New Insights into Thermal Protection Materials
For the first time, intricate structures in thermal protection materials are being revealed at the microscale—just one-tenth the thickness of a human hair.
