Here come the galaxies, here come the galaxies

Our 50,000th Galaxy
We've designed a special trophy for those who process our 50,000th galaxy.

If you want to see the galaxy it is here.

TheSkyNet turns 3
Last Saturday (the 13th) was our third birthday. It really snuck up on us, we can't believe it's been three years already since our first members signed up! To celebrate we've created something special to share with you all.

Alex (Eckley) has created this amazing gigapixel mosaic of ALL the results you've helped create on theSkyNet POGS. He included results from over 45,000 galaxies (in fact we're processing the 50,000th galaxy this week!) Have an explore of the image, we recommend viewing at fullscreen.

This photomosaic is of the results from processing an image of M100 - a relatively nearby galaxy. This image is the 'sfr' result image, or star formation rate - how fast new stars are being born in different parts of the galaxy. The overall image is made up as a mosaic of results files from theSkyNet POGS, over the many different properties you help us work out for each galaxy.

This is such an impressive picture showing the incredible volume of results you've helped produce since theSkyNet began.

Thank you to each and every one of our members for their support, as always we can't do it without you.

We're off to explore this image a bit more, and to see if we can find the mini image of M100 within the mosaic!

Hey Everyone

We fairly certain that we've tracked down and fixed the issue that was causing the 184 error on new windows and boinc clients when trying to connect to the pogs server. If anyone is still getting the error please let me know.
