I shall try to keep this blog less list like and more focused.
Have been having a go on http://www.planethunters.org/ today.
This is a really cool site that allows you to analyse solar activity of stars and help determine if they may have planets orbiting them. The information is then collated with other people around the world looking at the stars which speeds up the process of identifying potential new planets.
I find this really cool as unlike other web based experiments this one doesn't borrow your computing power but rather requires your input to the problem.
That is my good thing for today, short and sweet and very geeky.
