Asteroids@Home

You might be surprised just how little is known of the asteroids in Earth's solar system. Without more knowledge it is impossible to assess the potential risks and opportunities offered by our rocky neighbors. Asteroids@Home works to identify and catalog the physical properties, such as shape, spin, and axis, of asteroids in Earth's solar system.

Cosmology@Home

*REQUIRES VBOX*
The universe is big. Very big. We explore the universe by modeling our understanding of elemental physics. When we find something that does not fit with our expectations, we may have found something new, like Dark Matter. Cosmology@Home works to model the universe around us and seeks anomalies in what we expect.

Einstein@Home

When a neutron star spins very quickly, does it make a sound? Yes, yes it does. In fact, the "sound" is so loud and so permanent that spinning neutron stars, or pulsars, from distant galaxies can be heard from earth. Einstein@Home uses data from LIGO Fermi to identify pulsars throughout the universe while exploring other aspects of Einstein's theories.

MilkyWay@Home

Have you ever wondered how all the "stuff" in the Milky Way got to where it is now? Milkyway@Home uses data from Sloan Digital Sky Survey to model a highly accurate map of the Milky Way. In doing so it explores how galaxies are formed and shaped. Milkyway@Home also works to explore different computer algorithms for modeling complex systems.

Universe@Home

There are a seemingly infinite number of stars in the sky. The more stars we observe, the more we learn about our own. Simulations are wonderful for testing theories, correcting equipment, and filling knowledge-gaps when we cannot directly observe something. Universe@Home simulates the evolution of gigantic star clusters. This data is used by scientists around the world.
