项目地址:http://pogs.theskynet.org/pogs/
项目主办方:际射电天文学研究中心(ICRAR)
项目简介:(这良心官网项目介绍居然有中文直接粘过来了)

POGS 是theSkyNet 的一个子项目。theSkyNet 现在一共有两个子项目,另一个是theSkyNet - Sourcefinder ,这两个项目在BOINC 上都是独立的,需要单独加入。

theSkyNet POGS 是一个利于互联网上的计算机来承担天文科研的研究项目。我们将合并若干个天文台(GALEX,Pan-STARRS1,WISE)的光谱范围,生成一个多波长的近宇宙 紫外-可见光-近红外 星系图集。我们将用光谱能量分布拟合技术从一个个像素上计算若干物理参数 (例如恒星形成率,星系恒星质量,尘埃衰减,星系尘埃总质量)。加入该项目,请下载免费的程序并在您的电脑运行。

Official Goodbye from ICRAR
TheSkyNet was ICRAR’s first ever citizen science project. Since then, we’ve launched (and concluded) Galaxy Explorers, and will soon be launching beta testing for our latest citizen science program, Astro Quest.

Using the distributed computing power of thousands of computers located around the world, theSkyNet’s ‘SourceFinder’ project used a DuChamp algorithm to automatically tell the difference between background noise and real radio sources in observations from a radio telescope. The project proved that distributed computing is a real solution for processing large volumes of radio astronomy data and may help researchers maximise science returns from the next generation radio telescopes like the Square Kilometre Array.

After SourceFinder, we launched another citizen science project on theSkyNet platform. Named ‘POGS’, it combined data from Pan-STARRS1 (a telescope at Haleakala Observatory in Hawaii) with space-based telescopes, GALEX and WISE to generate a multi-wavelength galaxy atlas of the nearby Universe.

The results of this astronomically awesome distributed computing effort has allowed our researchers to measure the physical parameters (such as stellar mass, surface density and star formation rate) of 107, 985 galaxies! The results of this work will be published soon, so keep an eye on the ICRAR website for details.

As well as processing data for our astronomers, theSkyNet has helped us understand how to involve the community in our work through a citizen science project. We’ve had a great time with it and as we wrap this one up, we’d like to thank theSkyNet community for your time, enthusiasm, and commitment to science. We hope to have you on board for Astro Quest—keep an eye out for it!

Thank you from everyone that's worked on theSkyNet at ICRAR. 11 May 2018, 0:35:11 UTC
