New Project Launched (Asteroids@home)

"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."

Asteroids has added Nvidia GPU and AVX support

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.
