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.

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.

03.30.15 - Earthlike "Star Wars" Tatooines May Be Common
University of Utah simulations using the NASA Center for Climate Simulation's Discover supercomputer show that solid planets orbiting two stars likely exist and may be widespread.
New simulation of the heliosphere shows it to have two relatively short jets streaming away from the nose
03.03.15 – NASA-Funded Study Finds Two Solar Wind Jets in the Heliosphere
NASA-funded simulation research found that the giant bubble around our solar system, the heliosphere, is much shorter and smaller than previously thought, dominated by two jets shooting out the north and south poles of the sun. The simulation ran on the Pleiades supercomputer at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Facility.

02.12.15 - NASA Study Finds Carbon Emissions Could Dramatically Increase Risk of U.S. Megadroughts
Droughts in the U.S. Southwest and Central Plains during the last half of this century could be drier and longer than drought conditions seen in those regions in the last 1,000 years, according to a new NASA study. Analyzed climate projections include those from a model run at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation.
