Columbia (2004–2013)HECC Legacy System 

The Columbia supercomputer gained worldwide recognition in 2004 for increasing NASA's key high-end computing capability ten-fold for missions in aeronautics, space exploration, and Earth and space sciences. Its combined speed and productivity made Columbia the most powerful supercomputer of its time. The system was critical to NASA's Return to Flight (RTF) effort, and for near-real-time simulations that contributed to the safety of subsequent shuttle missions. The system was named to honor the crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia STS-107, lost in 2003.
