Orbit@Home Project Update: we are testing the scientific application, and adding the few more features needed in order to make it completely automatic. This first version of the scientific application will be able to determine the orbit of any asteroid, using only the astrometric observations. After completing our tests, we plan to generate work units and test it on orbit@home, hopefully within 2-3 weeks from now.
At the same time, since the BOINC team has recently introduced a number of new features, we will sync the orbit@home code to the latest BOINC version and fix all the related problems.

我们正在对项目程序进行测试,为使其完全自动化又增加了一些新特性。第一版的程序将可以仅根据天体的观测结果计算出其运行轨道。大概两到三周后,我们将生成一些任务包并进行测试。同时,由于最近BOINC系统引入了不少新特性,我们也将参照最近的BOINC版本对代码进行修改。

First application now available, for the i686-pc-linux-gnu platform only. We are generating WUs, and of course we are noticing a lot of problems, as expected. Please report any problem, using the forums.

第一版的项目程序已经完成,目前仅有linux版本。我们已经生成了一些任务包,过程中也出现了一些预期的问题。如果用户发现了问题,请在论坛上进行反映。

In the last month, we've not been able to work on orbit@home on a daily basis for various reasons, but still some important results have been achieved. The most important improvements to orbit@home are the result of the collaboration with (http://pan-starrs.ifa.hawaii.edu/public/) researchers in order to be ready to analyze their observations as soon as their survey starts (first light for PS1 prototype is scheduled for early 2006) and the observations are made publicly available. This requires substantial science-code development, and the results so far are extremely positive. As the first wave of WU demonstrated, the code based on ORSA works correctly on remote clients (only Linux platform tested for the moment). In order to provide WUs on a daily basis, we are developing a science-database and the relative management code. This will take a fair amount of time, about two more months of work. For this reason, the beta phase will be postponed to early 2006. Clients for Windows and Mac OS X will be provided as soon as the scientific application is considered sufficiently stable on the Linux platform. All the clients will be provided and tested during the alpha phase, to fix all the major problems before the beta phase.

这个好长,大致翻译一下吧...
上一个月项目组都没有足够的时间进行开发
与Pan-STARRS建立了合作关系
由第一批任务包的计算结果,基于ORSA的计算程序工作正常
正在开发一个科学数据库及相应的管理代码,以保证持续的任务包供应
BETA版本将在明年初发布,在linux版本足够稳定后,Win版和Mac版也将发布

We are updating the system to the latest version of BOINC. Some WUs will be released in the next days to test the preliminary version of the scientific database now under development.

我们将系统升级到了最新的BOINC版本。几天后将放出一些任务包以对正在开发的科学数据库进行测试。

Our proposal submitted to NASA last summer has not been selected for funding.

The orbit@home project hasn't been able yet to find stable funding for its development, but we will continue to work on it with even more passion, investing as much time as possible on it. All the orbit@home users around the world can be sure that this project will start to crunch at full power at some time in the future, even if this time is getting a bit farther now. And we will also continue to apply for other funding, improving the quality of our proposals to increment the chances of getting funded.

不幸的消息:
由于去年向NASA提交的建议没有被采纳,项目因此没有得到资金………………但是项目会继续下去,并且正在积极寻找其他途径的资金。
看来又变得遥遥无期了……T_T

sigh,感觉这个项目应该用不了太多钱的

Secondly, how much funding would you need to spend 100% of the time for (say) 4 months on this project? Ballpark figure - few x $10k? few x $100k?

It's not that easy, you have to include overheads from the institute, travels, collaborators, hardware... A typical proposal runs around $50k-$100k/year for a few months of work per year.

不太确定最后一句的意思,是说一年要5-10万$,还是只工作几个月就需要这个数字?

可能两个意思都有吧
要保持项目正常运行,应该并不需要他一年中全部时间都花在上面,大概几个月也就够了

两条不算新的新闻...

Dear orbit@home users:

The project is very well alive, but in a state of apparent inactivity, at least on the BOINC side. While we didn't work directly on the BOINC application or the science database, in the last months we've been working on ORSA, adding several important features that will be used in the BOINC application. On the funding side, we're "fighting" in order to demonstrate to NASA how important it is to use numerical simulations to support Near-Earth Objects discovery, characterization, and threat mitigation, and we should hear something back about this pretty soon (1-2 weeks from now). We're thinking about extending o@h's science in several directions, such as providing a guide to astronomers to where to point their telescopes every night in order to maximize the probability to detect a new NEO, or how to automatically determine rotation period, spin pole and shape of a NEO, or how to test numerically different deflection methods in order to mitigate the threat posed by NEOs. If these ideas turn out to be scientifically valid, then we should ear great news soon. Otherwise... we'll keep scratching our heads in order to find a way to make o@h start crunching!

BOINC这边的工作已经停止,但ORSA那边的工作仍在继续,而且也在努力从NASA申请经费。

Unfortunately, the commitee didn't accept my proposal. The conference where those topics were discussed made the news here.

经费申请还是失败了:(

这个是他论坛里的新闻吧,茫茫无期啊!

We have updated the network configuration. Please report any connection problem to the forum.

快一年了....突然蹦出来这样一条新闻...更新了网络配置。

We have finally some news. Good news. We're going to receive a very substantial donation sometime in the next four months, that will allow this project to reach the public beta phase, with support for clients for Linux/Mac OS X/Windows, new work units generated on a daily basis, and a graphical screen saver. Before then, we're going to update the orbit@home website, implementing a donation mechanism and exploring new ways to provide the funding for the project. Your ideas are welcome! One more thing: we're going to re-open for registration by new users. Welcome to the regenerated orbit@home!

好消息!接下来的四个月,项目将得到一笔不小的捐赠!项目注册也已经打开,欢迎加入Team China:

等等吧,应该是现在还没有开发好windows平台的计算程序

貌似在Boinc的项目列表里还没有该项目....
