Das Projekt, lange Zeit aus Geld und Personalmangel auf Autopilot (vgl. Rechenkraft.net Wiki), wird wieder finanziert und betreut.
Die Finanzierung übernimmt derzeit die NASA, das Forum wird nun hauptamtlich betreut.
C@H wertet u.a. derzeit Daten der Planckmission aus.
vgl. Thread eben dort:
Professor Wandelt dazu:
"Let me take this one. C@H is fully alive. Yes, we went through a period of constrained funding and human resource bottlenecks and we are now coming out of it stronger than before.
After starting the project on a 3-year project funded by the NSF funding ran out and the project essentially sustained itself on no external funding for a while. The main developer (Scott Kruger), who had done the technical work to set up the project as an undergraduate and joined my research group as a graduate student, received an offer that was too good to refuse and left the graduate program (that's an unfortunate side effect of attracting great people and teaching them cool and useful things, like high performance computing, GPU acceleration and Bayesian statistics...).
Chad Fendt, the graduate student with whom I developed Pico (the back-end that uses the results from our work packages to analyze cosmological data sets), graduated and took a great job that unfortunately does not involve cosmology (again, apparently my grad students become too useful to people with lots of money to stay in cosmology...)
Last year C@H became an important part of the Planck project and is now funded by NASA. The results will be used for the analysis of the Planck data (check the C@H wikipedia page for an explanation). So the project is fully alive, we are getting ready for the analysis of the Planck data and we are currently updating the C@H application to be able to further increase its accuracy and to be able to use it for an even wider set of cosmological models.
If you look on the message boards you will see posts by the Planck outreach coordinator and you will have noticed Faiks many responses to user questions and concerns, as well as new content for cosmology enthusiasts.
So, I hope we will be able to welcome you and many others like you back to C@H!
All the best,
Vielleicht sollte man den RKN-Wikiartikel diesbezüglich mal updaten.
