About the project

Universe@home project's two main goals are:
  1. to provide scientist with a necessary computational power and
  2. to provide the way of involvement for anyone equipped with a computer and willing to take part in the research
Our simulations deal with fundamental problems of the Universe, which cannot be investigated in a laboratory. From the birth of stars to the utmost energetic supernova explosions, nature still astonishes us but at the same time leaves ways for scientific examination. ... More..

A synthetic black hole database published!
With a bit of delay, we would like to announce a publication of the first synthetic database including both black holes in binaries, i.e. with gravitationally bound companion stars, and those which exist as single objects. The latter might have formed from massive single stars (at least twenty times more massive than the Sun) or, more probably, as a result of binary disruptions and stellar mergers. This study is a starting point for other more in-depth analysis of black hole populations in the Milky Way and other galaxies. You can find the publication here https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2019ApJ...885....1W, whereas the database is publicly available here https://universeathome.pl/universe/bhdb.php.

Server update
The project server software must be updated.
Unfortunately, this operation must take place today so I apologize for the lack of prior notice.
Over the next few days, downtime will be possible.

Hardware upgrade
I just got info that we finally got new server for project and new database server.
Depend on when I arrive to Warsaw we will be off for about one to two days to move everything to the new machines.

It will happen probably from Thursday 24th October until Friday 26th or week later same days.
