Looking for a little more detail about what we are actually doing and who is in charge.
Thanks.

We've updated the main page of the project, so now you have information on our publications and related grants.

Nice! The NSF logo would look good there as well.

Is there someway to view the completed portions of the 3D model we are rendering? The whole model? Will the model be made available for public use?

Im interested to, i crunch for science but i would still like to see what im crunching. (3d model of the milky way would be nice)

I think a 3D model will make it much easier for us to actually navigate through it, when that time comes.

Yea, I had a similar interest. It's nice to get all the technical information, but a down to earth explanation of how this will be used in the end would be nice.

Will the public ever see this model? What will be the benefits to science (in layman's terms)

Thanks

We've updated the main page of the project, so now you have information on our publications and related grants.

I read this in your publications with interest;

...the 1024 processor partition of the BlueGene
(IBM BlueGene/L supercomputer) provides a similar number
of fitness evaluations per second as the approximately
1,000 user BOINC community, access to the BlueGene is
limited and shared with other researchers. Alternatively,
the BOINC project is dedicated to the astronomy project
and operates at a fraction of the cost. Because of these
factors, we argue that asynchronous genetic search on volunteer
computing platforms is a valuable asset to scientific
researchers doing computationally intensive scientific modeling
and it is comparable with synchronous genetic search
on supercomputing environments.

And that article was written/published in July 2008. Imagine how many BlueGene's we're up to now!!!

Good point. I wonder how many thousands of active MW crunchers there are now.

Not just the number of users, but the CPU Opti apps, the ATI app, etc.

And we're not even using the genetic search anymore. Travis has mentioned that the fitness numbers we've been seeing are the best he knows of.

Is it normal recently going workunits to contain three streams, two of which have exactly the same definition?
An example workunit is 91405739 where the first and the second stream in parameter_212F5_3s.txt are equal.

For me it's a cartoon, imagine Whacky Races with 1.8 million contenders and you get the idea..
