Welcome to my BOINC blog

Welcome to my BOINC blog.

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.

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@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.
