Toronto (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
- GeoPense has announced its participation in the Einstein@Home project. Existing projects focus on biological computation. This project searches for pulsars (spinning neutron stars) with data from the LIGO gravity wave detector and the Aricebo Radio Observatory. GeoPense is an effort is to bring together widely distributed computing power to be applied to several tasks in the realm of scientific research.
GeoPense endeavours to gather computing resources from government, health care, education, industry and individuals for this purpose. Assistance is given freely to those participating. When set up properly, this computing power uses only dormant computer time, resulting in no adverse effect on the day-to-day operations of an institution. On-site assistance, mentoring, and presentations are all available upon request. In addition, active displays of project status can be set up, providing excellent public viewing of an institution's participation.
