Nor-Tech Facilitates Commercial Space Travel Research
Science fiction enthusiasts have long dreamt of the idea of commercial space flight, but providing tours outside of Earth’s atmosphere may be closer to reality than many think. There are a few challenges associated with bringing people to space at such a scale, with one of the core dangers being exposure to radiation. The first step in addressing this problem is doing research so that organizations can fully understand the risks and communicate them to commuters. The Federal Aviation Administration needed a high-performance computing solution to conduct its studies, which placed emphasis on reliability, security and storage capacity. The FAA turned to Nor-Tech, a Seagate Cloud Builder Alliance partner, to develop technology for its research.
