- 11.12.15 - NASA Experts Share Importance of Supercomputing at Annual Conference
- Scientists and engineers from NASA and across the U.S. will present their latest computational achievements at SC15, the international supercomputing conference, Nov. 16-19, in Austin, Texas. Supercomputers contribute to designing fuel-efficient airplanes, developing spacecraft to send humans to Mars, understanding and predicting changes to Earth’s climate, and determining the origins of the universe.
- 09.28.15 - New D-Wave 2X System with 1000+ Qubit Processor Installed at NASA's Ames Research Center
- D-Wave Systems Inc. announced that it has entered into a new agreement with Google and USRA for the installation of a succession of quantum systems. A new D-Wave 2X™ system is now operational at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility to support NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL) project.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
