|NASA SCIENCE, ENGINEERING FEATURED AT SUPERCOMPUTING CONFERENCE|
|NASA will showcase some of its most inspiring science and engineering achievements at Supercomputing 2007, the International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC07) at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, Reno, Nevada... |
This year's conference is expected to attract more than 7,000 participants from around the world, representing industry, academia and government agencies. Participants will see 40 presentations and demonstrations covering research projects supporting some of NASA's most critical mission work. Featured are presentations on how NASA uses high-fidelity computational and experimental data to determine safe re-entry and landing of the space shuttle, as well as how NASA simulations assess design safety aspects of the next-generation Orion crew exploration vehicle and Ares I crew launch vehicle. Also featured are studies of planet formation, stars and black holes - all made possible by the agency's powerful high-end computing resources.
"NASA high-end computers are enabling simulations of the Earth's weather and climate with ever-increasing detail," said Phil Webster, chief of the Computational and Information Sciences and Technology Office at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "Among this year's highlights, a NASA computer model simulated climate from 1880 through the present, and made projections of 21st century climate."
|NASA SELECTS FOUR AMES PROJECTS TO ADVANCE KEY TECHNOLOGIES|
|MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. - Four projects that will advance key technologies to meet critical needs for NASA's mission will be led by Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. The projects are part of NASA's Innovative Partnerships Program Seed Fund that addresses technology barriers with cost-shared, joint-development programs. |
The four Seed Fund projects at Ames are part of a total of 38 partnerships that span 30 states and include nine universities, 23 small to medium-sized businesses, 17 large corporations and participation by all 10 NASA field centers.
"The NASA Innovative Partnerships Program is providing opportunities for Ames to partner with small companies, universities and large companies to develop exciting technologies that can both produce and enhance science results from future missions," said Ryszard Pisarski, deputy chief of the Technology Partnerships Office at NASA Ames...
