HPE to put a supercomputer in space

"It sets a new bar for the amount of research we've been able to get" on a cargo flight, said Dan Hartman, deputy manager of the global space station.

The rocket that took of at 12:31PM ET from Cape Canaveral, Florida, will launch a supercomputer called Spaceborne, from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. While not yet reused, titanium grid fins will enable aggressive reuse with little or no refurbishment necessary between launches.

The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft has arrived at the International Space Station, delivering an East Texas school's science experiment to the astronauts aboard.

The project is meant to eventually end up on a voyage to Mars-which also takes a year-with the intention of helping astronauts perform high-level computation in space, which could eliminate the current lag-time in communication between space and Earth. It will be a year-long experiment, with aims to eventually land on a mission to Mars-a trip of the same length.

The whole idea behind this mission is that, right now, numerous calculations needed for space research are done on Earth-located laboratories, which means that it is necessary to send data from the space in order to be analysed. "Though there are no hardware modifications to these components, we created a unique water-cooled enclosure for the hardware and developed purpose-built system software to address the environmental constraints and reliability requirements of supercomputing in space", HP said.

There is a lot of communication delays between Mars and Earth because Mars is nearly 140 million miles from Earth.

Sponsored by the US National Laboratory, the investigation will test the concept of using microsatellites in low-Earth orbit to support critical operations such as the cost reduction of Earth imagery in time-sensitive situations such as tracking severe weather and detecting natural disasters. "It is to address the environmental constraints and reliability requirements of supercomputing in space". The reply is another 20 minutes.

It was the last launch into space a new Dragon. According to Florida State University's Michael Delp, who is in charge of the experiment, 30 days for mice in space is comparable with three years for humans.

During the mission, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carried the Dragon cargo ship, which contained more than 6,400lb of research equipment, cargo and supplies.
