NASA supercomputers are working hard on COVID-19 research

NASA is lending some of its supercomputing muscle to COVID-19 research. NASA's supercomputers have been working on a range of projects, including basic science, on how the virus interacts with the cells in the human body to genetic risk factors to screening for potential therapeutic drugs. NASA's joined a consortium of institutions that is pairing up supercomputing resources with proposals for using high-end computing for COVID-19 research studies.
