NASA Issues a Challenge to Speed Up Its ‘FUN3D’ Supercomputer Code

Do you, or someone you know, know how to program computers? NASA has a challenging assignment for you. NASA’s aeronautical innovators are sponsoring a competition to reward qualified contenders who can manipulate the agency’s FUN3D design software so it runs ten to 10,000 times faster on the Pleiades supercomputer without any decrease in accuracy. The competition is called the High...

Galaxy formation simulations benefit NASA’s future space telescope

For the past five years, Weinberg – whose own research has been buoyed by the Ohio Supercomputer Center for the past 15 years – has been on NASA’s Science Definition Team for the preliminary study of WFIRST along with Ohio State colleagues Scott Gaudi and Chris Hirata. After that preliminary study, NASA announced in February it would move forward with the WFIRST mission. “It’s definitely...
