Received an Email about the [email protected] project:
|Greetings from [email protected]|
We are pleased to announce that [email protected] is now in production mode. During the past month we have generated work-units at a rate of 300,000 per week, each one requiring about one hour of computing time on an average desktop computer. Read more about this here.
The process of preparing the astronomical data for the analysis with the [email protected] client, and then recombine all the results to generate an optimized search strategy for near-Earth asteroids, has been recently described in detail on the [email protected] website. To read more about the science behind [email protected], visit here.
We are now analyzing the results obtained so far, and testing the latest improvements to the scientific application before deploying it and create a new series of work batches. New work-units should be generated by the end of October 2010.
