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).
- 01.14.19 - Solar Flares: From Emergence to Eruption
- A team of scientists has, for the first time, used a single, cohesive computer model to simulate the entire life cycle of a solar flare. The model ran on supercomputers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division.
- 12.12.18 - Tracking Dynamo Waves Inside the Sun to Fathom the Solar Cycle
- Visualizations produced from NASA solar data open a window into the Sun’s interior, revealing dynamo wave patterns that help us understand the solar cycle better than ever before.
- 12.04.18 - NCCS, CISTO, and Partners Presenting Advances at AGU
- Researchers from the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS), its parent Computational Information and Sciences and Technology Office (CISTO), NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), and other partner organizations are leading sessions and presenting in the Scientific Program, as well as giving hyperwall and flash talks in the NASA exhibit at the 2018 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting.
- 11.30.18 - Greenhouse Gas ‘Detergent’ Recycles Itself in Atmosphere: NASA Study
- A simple molecule in the atmosphere that acts as a "detergent" to breakdown methane and other greenhouse gases has been found to recycle itself to maintain a steady global presence in the face of rising emissions, according to new NASA research including computer modeling run at the NCCS.
- 11.15.18 - Aircraft Noise Reduction Technologies Come in for a Landing
- Supported by high-fidelity, full-scale aircraft simulations run on the Pleiades supercomputer, NASA flight tests recently demonstrated new ways to reduce airframe noise without impacting aerodynamic performance.
- 11.13.18 - NASA Missions to Benefit from New Cloud Computing Services
- NASA-funded scientific and engineering projects will get a boost from a new cloud computing service that expands the agency’s range of high-performance computing service offerings. Through a secure, managed cloud environment approach, the NAS facility and the NCCS will provide supported access to resources at commercial cloud providers.
