TimeWednesday, November 14th12:15pm - 1:15pm
DescriptionSpaceborne Computer, a stock, Linux-based, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) HPC system was launched aboard the SpaceX-12 Dragon spaceship on August 14, 2017. After a month in cold stowage, it was installed and powered up in the International Space Station (ISS) on September 14, 2017. Despite many predictions, Spaceborne Computer continues to run in the harsh environment of space without expensive, time-consuming, or bulky protective shielding. The use of "HARDening with SOFTware" will be shared; the "anomalies" (both expected and unexpected) that were encountered in space will be covered; and the experiment results to date will be shared.
