Space Program Supercomputers

The New NASA Supercomputer is Now More Powerful and Energy Efficient

— August 27, 2019 — Tech
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.
Trend Themes
1. Energy-efficient Supercomputing - The use of more efficient cooling mechanisms and low-power components can disrupt the supercomputing industry by reducing costs and resource consumption.
2. Supercomputing for Space Exploration - The development of more powerful and reliable supercomputers can disrupt the space exploration industry by enabling more complex simulations and faster processing speeds.
3. Modular Supercomputing - Modular designs can disrupt the supercomputing industry by making it easier to upgrade and customize systems to meet specific needs.
Industry Implications
1. Supercomputing - The supercomputing industry can benefit from adopting more energy-efficient and modular designs in order to reduce costs and attract more clients.
2. Space Exploration - The space exploration industry can benefit from using more powerful and reliable supercomputers in order to facilitate complex simulations and improve mission planning.
3. Green Technology - The development of energy-efficient supercomputers with low environmental impact can disrupt the green technology industry by enabling businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and save costs on electricity.
