NASA made important conclusions by sending a supercomputer into space

Despite the fact that the available developments of scientists are still far from the possibilities of a fictional computer HAL 9000 described by Arthur Clark in his «Space Odyssey», modern cars are also able to surprise. In matters of research of space, NASA pays special attention to computational technology, since it is thanks to her scientists manage to collect and process a huge amount of data for research.

Computers are widely used in preparing Mars travel missions. Today, one of the leading roles in the preparation and creation of research equipment is occupied by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). In particular, the team development was used when creating an international space station.

The space industry is in the arms of the space industry, the advanced system of APOLLO 4000 infrastructure solutions is worthy. Due to the possibility of processing 1 trillion operations per second, it is considered to be supercomputer. Such indicators are significantly superior to the computational speeds of the previous NASA equipment. In particular, it is worth noting that new machines can perform a complex analysis of a large amount of data that are required to maintain the system. Returns them to earth is not a paramount goal.

To obtain data on the viability of such supercomputers, it was decided to launch them into space. Of course, a full-fledged picture will become available only on the return of cars to Earth, but now NASA specialists managed to extract three important lessons.

Software can protect the system

It is impossible to count on the internet

Astronauts lack knowledge in the field of IT technologies

The information received will be processed to improve the conditions for conducting space programs with new equipment.
