Hmm, dostt divne, ze Orbit at home nema prostriedky na HW - ked sa podava grant, jeho sucastou je vzdy aj HW. Zeby to Pasquale neodhadol? Trochu amaterske..
Dear Kotulic Bunta:
Greetings from Orbit@Home.
We are pleased to announce that Orbit@Home 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 Orbit@Home 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 Orbit@Home website. To read more about the science behind Orbit@Home, 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.
We appreciate your generous donation of computer time. In order for Orbit@Home to become fully productive, we are now in critical need of server-grade storage equipment. To help us meet our storage requirements with hardware donations, please contact us here . For regular donations, please visit this page .
