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.

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.
