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).
- 08.02.18 - Kiosk and Hyperwall Debut at 2018 Science Jamboree
- Among the exhibits filling the atrium at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center event was the new, permanent installation of an interactive kiosk and hyperwall displaying scientific visualizations and other content. The exhibit is a collaboration between the NASA Center Climate for Simulation (NCCS) and the Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS).
- 07.13.18 - Joint Assimilation of SMOS Brightness Temperature and GRACE Terrestrial Water Storage Observations
- Using the NCCS, Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) researchers assimilated multi-resolution, multi-sensor satellite observations with the aim of improving model estimates of the vertical soil moisture profile.
- 07.10.18 - GMAO and NCCS Support Winter–Spring 2018 Field Campaigns
- From studying Earth to contributing to a future Mars mission, Winter–Spring 2018 field campaigns benefitted from forecast support by the GMAO and the NCCS.
- 06.29.18 - Scientists Use Supercomputers to Predict Asteroid Damage on Earth
- Simulations of hypothetical impact scenarios run on the Pleiades supercomputer help calculate risks and assess possible damage that might occur when asteroids enter Earth's atmosphere.
- 06.28.18 – No Planets Needed: NCCS-Hosted Simulations Show Disk Patterns Can Self-Generate
- Astrophysicists used the NCCS Discover supercomputer to simulate gas-dust interactions in disks (debris and transitional) around young stars.
- 06.13.18 – New and Improved Way to Find Baby Planets
- New work from an international team of astronomers used archival radio telescope data to develop a new method for finding very young extrasolar planets. The research leveraged computing resources at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division.
