NASA and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise are cooperating to send a supercomputer into space.
The not-so-shrewdly named Spaceborne Computer is scheduled for launch Monday from Kennedy Space Center. It's part of a year-long experiment.
The high-performance commercial machine is meant to operate seamlessly in the “harsh conditions” of the cosmos.
In space limited computing capabilities are sufficient for a visit to the moon or hanging out in low Earth orbit. But travel a bit further into the ether—to Mars, for instance—and it becomes much more difficult to keep in touch.
