Hi, how is the new application helping the project? I mean as it calculates 100 times faster the project is globally progressing 100 times faster aswell, so have we got enough work to deal with or has the new app already crunched through all the work you had scheduled for the "slow" app?
In fact what is planned for the next few months?

Sorry for my english and if my question isn't very clear...

Hello,

By no means are we anywhere near out of work. We have plotted most of the Sagittarius Dwarf stream, yes. But we are looking into a new method of calculating that stream that will make our findings hopefully more accurate. We are also looking into modeling other streams. And after that we are going to try and model the Galactic Halo without any streams in it at all so we can understand it a bit better. After that... who knows?

Cheers,
John Vickers
