I like the idea of a badge that is awarded not for points, but for number of models produced. I could see it as a separate badge with just a single number in the middle that increases for each valid model you produce.

My understanding is that much of the data that is processed fails to produce a valid model, and that even when a data set DOES produce a valid model, there are a lot of computational "dead ends" that occur along the way, so an individual actually identifying a valid model is pretty uncommon when compared to all other possible outcomes.

I know its about the scientific results in the end, but if it isn't too difficult to implement, it doesn't hurt to have a little "reward" for the users.

Some projects have something like this if you find a Prime, special # or have crunch data used in research. PrimeGrid, GPUGrid, RakeSearch, DHEP, Amicable, Xansons, ODLK, Latin Squares (ODLK1), Pogs, SRBase are some that I see.

I love that idea! That would certainly give me more incentive.

The Chicxulub asteroid was about 110 miles in diameter. The scale looks about right. What they screwed up was they made the diameter of the Earth too small.

Can't get badges if there's no work! What happened to the data flow?

It seems it's on it's way: https://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=911#7472

Although there's no explanation why it stopped.

It never started. The work we processed was generated in 2021.

They haven't started generating new work yet.

Hopeful that Monday will show up with new work as they posted.
