Hello all.
I would like to ask you where i can see the result of our work in the project? Is there any link or something where all of us can see what we do with our machines?

Best regards.

Bump.

This is something I'd be curious to learn more about as well.
Approximately how many work units have to be done in total, vs. how many more need to be done?
Are we close, or just scratching the surface of this?
What parts of the galaxy are we calculating stuff for?

Going to add this here since general discussion is lacking.

I too have been interested in seeing what has progressed with the computations. What's the big picture? I know my computer is doing work and I know who it's doing work for but I'm unsure what exactly that work is.

Last I checked the head of this project is Heidi Newberg https://homepages.rpi.edu/~newbeh/

Perhaps someone can reach out to her and ask for some more regular updates regarding the current work being done. Also in updating the older information.

I cannot speak for Separation, since I am not working on that project, but the current Nbody runs are attempting to determine the properties of the progenitor galaxy which turned into the Orphan Stream. The last set of runs, however, were inconclusive. The three runs we put up converged to two very different progenitor dwarf galaxies. At the moment, we have Nbody runs up to see if we find the same convergence problems when comparing to simulated data of a similar structure. We will most likely need more stellar data in order to precisely calculate the mass and structure of the progenitor dwarf galaxy using MilkyWay@home.

Thank you for taking interest in our research and for your support.
