NCCS and NAS Enable ‘Pulsar in a Box’ Simulations
NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) and NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility supercomputers enabled groundbreaking simulations of spinning neutron stars—called pulsars—that trace the paths of charged particles in magnetic and electric fields

On a hazy morning at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility a thin, multi-stage rocket leaps off its launcher. The rocket climbs to an altitude of nearly 50 kilometers (km) and begins pitching back down towards the Atlantic Ocean.
New SBU Takes Effect October 1
Starting October 1, 2018, a new common Standard Billing Unit (SBU) will be used for allocating and tracking computing time usage at both the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility and the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).

When making policy decisions about reducing carbon dioxide and other emissions, governments weigh short-term, localized costs against long-term, global benefits. Reducing emissions also typically reduces air pollution, which yields short-term, localized h
