Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology missions.
REQUESTING COMPUTING TIME AT NASA
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).
- 09.15.18 - The Complex Evolution of Florence’s Winds
- The GEOS weather model running at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) captured the storm’s wind field between September 1 and September 14, 2018.
- 09.12.18 - The Closest Exoplanet to Earth Could Be 'Highly Habitable'
- Running a NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) computer model at the NCCS, researchers have found that Proxima Centauri b can sustain enormous areas of liquid water on its surface, potentially raising its prospects for harboring living organisms.
- 09.04.18 – NASA Leverages HPC for Asteroid Defense
- NASA has been actively working to understand and mitigate the risks posed by asteroids for a decade. Much of this work currently takes place in California as part of the Asteroid Threat Assessment Project (ATAP) at NASA Ames, using the Pleiades supercomputer.
- 08.31.18 - NASA Model Forecasts Mid-Atlantic Local Area Flooding, July 21-25, 2018
- In accord with other 5- to 10-day forecasts, NASA’s GEOS Forward Processing (FP) system indicated a mid-level height anomaly pattern analogous with those of prior notable long-duration and major Middle Atlantic rainfall events. GEOS FP runs four times per day at the NCCS.
- 08.28.18 - NCCS-Hosted Simulations Show Health Benefits from Accelerating Carbon Dioxide Emissions Reductions
- Using NCCS resources, Duke University and NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies researchers examined the human health benefits of increasing 21st century carbon dioxide reductions by 180 gigatons of carbon.
- 08.27.18 - How Scientists Predicted Corona’s Appearance During Aug. 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse
- Predictive Science researchers used data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory to develop a corona model that they ran on supercomputers including the Pleiades supercomputer at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility.
