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..

Server site maintenance break between 11th and 13th January
I just get message form server room staff:

"Dear all
A big shutdown of our network is coming!
Due to the measurements of the power grid, we have to switch off
the computer network in the whole building from 11 to 13 January 2019.
During this time, no computers will be working and even there will be
no voltage in the electrical sockets.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but we have little influence on it.
Best regards

As you know, I'm working on Universe@Home for some years now. I was also one of creators and admins of Radioactive@Home project and few another BOINC projects.
Unfortunately, for long time I'm working on this project voluntarily as is no funds on it to my role.
Because of this, I will ask you for support on my Patreon profile.

Server upgrade
Tomorrow (24th October 2018) I will attempt to update BOINC server software.

This will cause number of server stops and possible some our web site problems.
