NERSC is participating in the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium. This unique private-public effort brings together federal government, industry, and academic leaders to volunteer free compute time and resources on their world-class machines. NERSC has initially set aside up to 1.25 million node hours on its Cori supercomputer in support of this effort. In addition, NERSC's HPC experts are available to assist research teams. Scientists are invited to submit COVID-19 related research proposals, from which an expert panel of top scientists and computing researchers will select projects based on public health benefits, with an emphasis on rapid results.

In 1985, NERSC was the first to install the Cray-2, then the fastest computer in the world. Today, just about any mobile phone has more processing power. The Cray-2 was nicknamed "Bubbles" for its unique liquid cooling system.
