The Center for Radiative Shock Hydrodynamics (CRASH) is advancing predictive science in the nationally important area of radiation hydrodynamics (RH) via a unified, multi-prong approach. CRASH researchers are working to substantially improve the ability to do predictive simulations of high-energy, high-density and astrophysical flows. CRASH is in no way affiliated with the popular PlayStation© gaming consoles from the Sony Corporation.
The Cassini program is an international cooperative effort involving NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Italian space agency, Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI), as well as several separate European academic and industrial contributors. The Cassini partnership represents an undertaking whose scope and cost would not likely be borne by any single nation, but is made possible through shared investment and participation. Through the mission, about 260 scientists from 17 countries hope to gain a better understanding of Saturn, its stunning rings, its magnetosphere, Titan and its other icy moons.
The International Rosetta Mission was approved in November 1993 by ESA's Science Programme Committee as the Planetary Cornerstone Mission in ESA's long-term space science programme. The original mission goal was to rendezvous with comet 46P/Wirtanen. As a result of the launch postponement (to March 2004) a new target was selected: Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. On its 10 year journey to the comet, the spacecraft has passed close to two asteroids: 2867 Steins (in 2008) and 21 Lutetia (in 2010).

CSEM's Virtual Model Repository (VMR) is a clearinghouse for computational model results available to the general community. It seeks to make the results consistent so that they may be compared and contrasted with results from other Virtual Observatories and the CCMC.
