Welcome to my BOINC blog

Welcome to my BOINC blog.

Einstein
Einstein is a program that uses your computer's idle time to search for spinning neutron stars (also called pulsars) using data from the LIGO and GEO gravitational wave detectors.

Orbit
The mission of orbit@home is to apply distributed computing to the study of Solar System dynamics. At first, we will focus on Near Earth Asteroid (NEA) research, focusing into:
  1. NEA search strategies and
  2. NEA impact hazard monitoring
Seti
SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data.


As you can see all the BOINC projects that I am running are astronomy related. There are many more projects, but these are the ones that I am participating in. Feel free to leave a comment.

BOINC is an interesting application. It all started back with SETI but I personally like World Community Grid. It works on solving biological issues... diseases and such.
