Re: Arecibo telescope damaged

Hi all

The BBC website has published a video clip of the moment the Arecibo receiver section collapsed...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-us-canada-55181448

Still can't believe it has gone :-(

Re: New WCG Badge here.

Great stuff Jeff...another wee celebration to be held even if it's a few weeks after the event ;-)

This might suit your taste buds...and has a connection to your newly awarded badge ;-)

Re: Arecibo telescope damaged

Hi all Sadly, the main central receiver section at Arecibo has now collapsed into the dish, taking with it the remaining support cables and the tops of the 3 support towers. The pictures are quite tragic, on the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-55147973 5464.jpg So, it's end o...

Re: Whoopee I got another WCG badge

Well done Penny...nice to see you "doing your bit" on WCG :-) To get to Emerald, you have to be crunching for a whole year, so I hope to see you post again in around another 180 days time - sometime around the end of May 2021 :-) In the meantime, I'm sure you can celebrate another good achievement, ...

Re: GPUs: FP16/32/64/TDP

Hi Chris Not quite a simple "cut and paste" - although I C&P'd the original, I then had to edit the lines, adding "tabs" between many of the parts of each line so that they would "line up" into a column...but it only took a minute to do...and now it's done, it's simple to add other lines to it...you...

Re: Arecibo telescope damaged

Hi all Into the public domain has been posted a report about the history of the telescope, its funding, its achivements and what has happened at Arecibo more recently, and the potential to repair it. It's a fairly "hefty" document (link below) some 54 pages long.... https://media.telemundopr.com/202...

Re: Arecibo telescope damaged

Hi all It seems that more damage has occurred at Arecibo and there is now a real threat that the central 900-ton receiver section, which is being supported by the broken/fraying cable support system, could actually crash into what's left of the dish surface below.

Re: Rosetta@home created proteins that bind to Covid-19 tighter than even antibodies

HI Darren Thanks for the heads-up on this. As you may know there are at least 3 projects who have developed tasks that will hopefully benefit research into Covid-19 - Rosetta, WCG and Ibercivis. And it's nice to see that Rosetta are starting to publish their initial results which hopefully will be w...
