The new NASA supercomputer is now more powerful, while also being more environmentally friendly than previous models. The supercomputer is designed to help moon-landing missions, and it features a design that requires less electricity but still allows users to run highly complex simulations efficiently. The supercomputer is cooled by an outdoor fan as well as a water system. The machine is comprised of 16 different modules that are able to be used for data storage as well as computer functions.
The new design reduced water consumption by over 3-million gallons during the 2018 fiscal year.
NASA's supercomputer will support the work of over 1,500 researchers. The computer will run simulations for a number of different important NASA projects, including simulating the sun's interior, as well as landing simulations on the moon.
