Spacexs Next Launch Will Send An Hpe Supercomputer To The

“The Spaceborne Computer is an experiment to see if regular “off-the-shelf” computers can operate in space over long periods of time. The computer is also equipped to deal with radiation exposure differently, relying on software upgrades rather than hardware. It runs on an open-source Linux operating system and is programmed to recognize when a high-radiation event is occurring, for instance. It will then respond by throttling its systems and lowering its operating speed to save power and avoid damage, according to NASA.”
