Coronavirus, Nasa puts its supercomputer available to researchers
the ROME - the u.s. space Agency down to the field to help researchers. And puts its supercomputers to the available equipment of the scientists who study the evolution of the pandemic by coronavirus SarsCoV2 to search for potential candidates for the treatment and the vaccine. In the Us, a project announced by the White House brings together Nasa and the National Science Foundation, as well as the laboratories of the Department of Energy, businesses, and academic institutions to join the information technology resources against the pandemic.

Nasa has made available to the supercomputer SGI Altix 512-processor, at the research Center Ames, called "Kalpana" in honor of astronaut Kalpana Chawla is the victim of the accident of the Shuttle Columbia of 2003, which typically is used to develop simulation models on the behavior of the climate. In this way, the researchers working on projects that aimed to combat the disease from coronavirus SarsCoV2, the Covid-19, will be able to use the supercomputers of the u.s. space Agency and others involved in the initiative.

"I Am proud that Nasa is paying for our experience of supercomputing to contribute to the global fight against the disease Covid 19," he wrote on Twitter the administrator of Nasa, Jim Bridenstine . "For over six decades, he continued, the agency uses its experience to address the challenges that have brought benefits to people all over the world in unexpected ways". Also Thomas Zurbuchen , head of the Directorate of Scientific Missions Nasa has said that "Nasa is pleased to lend its experience of supercomputing to help in the global fight against Covid 19". America, he observed Michael Kratsios , chief Technology Officer of the United States, "is joining together to fight against Covid 19, and this means using the capacity of our supercomputers to rapidly advance scientific research in order to find treatments and a vaccine."
