Computers are a large part of life in space these days, equipping astronauts with the tools they need to complete their missions. But unfortunately, the computers we use on land can’t be sent into space, since equipment designed for land degrades quickly in space.

Thanks to a new effort between NASA and Hewlett Packard, space travelers could soon have a supercomputer to take along on their missions. The computer, which will be tested on the International Space Station for one year, is slated to accompany astronauts on Mars missions, assuming testing goes well. NASA predicts a mission to Mars would take approximately one year, leading to a need to test the computer for that period of time before putting it into use.
