3:54 PMSupercomputer brings "cloudy" calculation astronauts in space
The supercomputer at the International galactic station is designed to deliver" cloudy " calculations to astronauts in space and accelerate their capacity to perform a data test in orbit, reports Hewlett-Packard Enterprise on Thursday.
The SpaceX cargo capsule delivered equipment familiar as a galactic computer to the galactic station in August 2017.
Subsequently, more than a year of testing HPE says, in fact, that is ready for the first time to deliver the astronauts cloudy skill – its own family of "cloud" over the clouds, as it were.
"We have fulfilled all the requests of our initial annual agreement. It was safe, and we can detect it," HPE CTO mark Fernandez told AFP.
A supercomputer is essentially a group of computers that work together.
Once on the ISS it has 32" cores " and is similar to the one that HPE implements on Earth. It's a 30 to 100 one rather than an iPhone or a tablet, Fernandez said.
NASA needed aristocracy, in fact, that any supercomputer he acquired could work in the formidable criteria of space, in the criteria of microgravity, radiation and accidental power outages. The HPE product has passed all the tests.
The task is made in that astronauts were able to conduct a personal scientific test in space, without transmitting data to Earth in the first place.
In real time, the Association between space and Territory has the opportunity to be unhurried and not credible. A merger often zatarivaetsja and has the ability to be a gap in communication, lasting some seconds or more.
Fernandez said that the fresh computer is aimed at updating the experience-in real time, somewhat similar to the introduction of a long-standing modem.
"It is slow, intermittent and contains the highest delay," he said.
With the fresh system, " I'll have the least hitch for my data movement, I'll have more of the highest bandwidth capacity for my data movement. I won't have the cost of a signal to get my data back to Earth, and I'll be significantly more reliable."
In a future voyage to Mars, millions of miles, the latency of communication have all chances to continue for 20 min. and more.
Thus, the test of these supercomputers in space at a relatively short distance of 250 miles (400 kilometers) above the Territory has the opportunity to assist in the development of future computers in deep space.
Galactic computer will be tested by scientists in just a few months, and then sent back to Earth in February or March.
