"The project Asteroids@home was started with the aim to significanly enlarge our knowledge of physical properties of asteroids. The BOINC application uses photometric measurements of asteroids observed by professional big all-sky surveys as well as 'backyard' astronomers. The data is processed using the lightcurve inversion method and a 3D shape model of an asteroid together with the rotation period and the direction of the spin axis are derived."http://asteroidsathome.net/

Asteroids has added both AVX support (40% faster on Haswell cores) and support for Nvidia GPUs (about twice as fast as CPU) from what I am hearing.
