More doing real Science…

Galaxyzoo sound like too much effort… use the spare power in your PC and join BOINC.

This progam runs in the background – even just as the screen saver for a slow PC – and does complicated calculations for a variety of Science experiments.

Over 300000 people are active members – doing work on projects such as;

  • Einstein@Home – searching for Gravitational Waves
  • SETI@Home – looking for Extra-terrestrial radio signals
  • Rosetta@Home – lookign for cures to diseases
  • ClimatePrediction.net – modelling climate change scenarios

It costs nothing, takes none of your time – but with over 300000 computers working at a time you are acting as part of one giant SuperComputer!
