What is the goal of the project? And does it have a cool screensaver? ;)

in short:

  • astronomy, "simulated cube of the sky"

I have done an interview with the project admin 2 months ago, you can listen to that once available

Until then you can find info here or on their website

I assume they'll kick into high gear if/once added to the whitelist ?

A few things I want to add about Sourcefinder:

The main sourcefinding application we've been using so far is Duchamp, but I'm currently working on deploying a new sourcefinder called SoFiA. Once SoFiA is deployed, we'll be running all of the data we ran through duchamp through SoFiA as well, so there should be a fair amount of work for a few months.

At some point in the fairly near future we should also have some real data from askap that we'll be processing with both Duchamp and SoFiA.
