Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to updated everyone on some of the current scientific work and results coming out of MilkyWay@home. These results can be found in my PhD thesis which I posted here.

The major result from this work is that we have mapped 7 stellar streams in the Milky Way halo. We believe two of these streams are likely to newly discovered streams.

These results would not have been possible without the contributions of the MilkyWay@home volunteers. Looking forward we hope to improve our mapping algorithms to find map new stellar streams and better fit those we have already found.

Thank you.

Jake

Thank you.

It doesn't change much for MilkyWay@home. We will continue working on mapping other structures in the halo and I will continue working as a post doctoral researcher.

Jake

So modest! Congratulations Dr Weiss, I know what a milestone submitting your dissertation and successfully defending it can feel like, and well done continuing into a postdoc! For my part it's gratifying to see what my computations are helping produce, and I'm now grinding my way through the parts that don't elude my mathematical/statisical abilities.
