Message 3112 - Posted: 29 May 2014, 10:21:38 UTC

I was wondering why some of the asteroids shown on the scientific results page cannot be found in the Damit DB. For example I was looking at the asteroid "1050 Meta" and wanted more info about it, went over to the Damit DB and searched for it, but it cannot find this asteroid by name or by number. This seems to be the case with not just this asteroid, but with a lot of them.

The reason is that they aren't stored in DAMIT immediately. Many information about the asteroid is at NASA pages where leads the link of each asteroid. If you wants some information which aren't there, you can PM me or wait till the data of an asteroid are stored at DAMIT.

Thank you, Kyong!
OK, I'll wait until it gets into DAMIT or I'll look elsewhere for the info (I was mainly looking for orbit diagram, which is also in the NASA page, so it's OK).
So in time the info will arrive into DAMIT for all asteroids from the scientific results page, great!

Do we have any estimate (or at least a rough guess) about when the next update to the scientific results page will occur? I've been checking it almost daily in the last 2 months, but it never changes...

Maybe a month. I am not sure. I have to first rewrite the whole webpage with results.

Thank you!

If there's anything an amateur like myself can do to help, please let me know. I mean I don't know what work has to be done to publish the results, but if just somebody needs to verify something and I can do it, I'm happy to help. I'm a busy person myself, but I'd be happy to sacrifice 2 hours per week to help out if I can.

Can't you just tag on the new results onto the end of the list?

And whilst your at it add the suggestions as per message 3068 by Bazso-DA :)

Now, the webpage is in clean XHTML, but I also have to change the way of putting results there. So I have to rewrite it to PHP and create a database table for it and create also some scripts.

Sounds like a good plan! It will be much more versatile. Looking forward to seeing the new scientific results page and the new results!!

Bonjour,

Dans quelle mesure et avec quelle puissance d'ordinateur peut-on aider significativement dans ce projet concernant les asteroides ?

There is a strong bias in the shapes we derive. The closer the shape is to a sphere, the lower is the variation of the reflected light caused by its rotation. In such cases, the signal is drowned in the noise and we can't derive the rotation period. Given the poor quality of the data we have now, the shape has to be elongated enough to produce a high-amplitude lightcurve - only then we can find the period and the corresponding shape.


Now that's cool! To hear the WHY's about the things we are seeing, THANKS!!!

Any news about updating the scientific results page to be more functional and to have the newer results included? :(

Nous ne parlons anglais ici. (that's a google translation so excuse any errors, unfortunately my written French is too poor these days to rely on it!)

I believe you asked with what spec PC could you use to give a significant contribution to Asteroids (not googled :P).
You should start a separate thread for this really, but it depends how significant you mean. If you've got cash to burn then go 6 or 8 core Intel CPU (not sure how well AMD CPUs do, anyone?).
But you would still make a significant (but less of course) contribution running an old C2 Duo 24/7.
As for GPUs, atm only Nvidia ones can be used & they don't give a major speed on Asteroids as they do in other projects, so far.
