It uses commercial off-the-shelf computer components, meaning it is a fairly generic supercomputer. The company is planning to start launching NASA astronauts to the station sometime in the next year under a contract with the agency.

But a supercomputer is something different. Once more, this company is setting a sterling example for other aerospace companies.

To get approved by NASA for Space, the Spaceborne computer successfully passed 146 tests.

For more than 16 years, humans have lived and worked continuously aboard the International Space Station, advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies, making research breakthroughs not possible on Earth to enable long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space.

HBO Hacker Leaks New Episodes Of Insecure And Curb Your Enthusiasm
This contradicts a leaked memo from the hacker last week, where HBO supposedly offered a $250,000 " bounty payment ". This ain't the first time, either, with the hackers last month releasing the first episode of season 9 of the show .

Because of the toll taken on equipment, and due to the lack of space, most heavy computing work is done on Earth. The Army has an imaging microsatellite on board for release this fall from the station. It's expected to arrive Wednesday at the space station. Putting the computers in the Space can deliver a considerable advantage. However, the software on this computer was developed to withstand these types of conditions, and its water-cooled enclosure for the hardware was created to help keep the system safe.

Mark Fernandez, the HPE engineer said that the space-bound computer is designed with an ability to make one trillion calculations in a single second.

Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. "I will be very excited then".

And one day, a similar computer could be used by astronauts traveling to Mars. The first successful recovery occurred in late December of 2015, a testament to the exceptional speed the company moves at.

That's because there could be long minutes of lag time in communicating with Mars-bound astronauts, and communications could even be cut off for days at a time. "Such a delay in communications will make any fieldwork particularly hard and potentially risky if astronauts encounter any of the scenarios critical to their mission that they cannot solve on their own", said HPE Vice President Alan Andréoli. "I mean, I'm only 15 and I'm sending my experiment into space so there's no impossible!" she said.
