On 12 April, there are two things to celebrate. Firstly and humblest is the first year of distributed computing platform Constellation operation. With your voluntary help we achieved to process almost 50% of the first batch of workunits for the HyEnD hybrid rocket flight altitude optimization.
And secondly it's the 51st anniversary of the first manned space flight achieved by Yuri Gagarin. To honor him there are Yuri's Night events worldwide and there is even one in your area for sure.

But when you will attend one of those great parties, you could also attend this virtual Yuri's Night event and let your computer crunch for science and get some credits for our Yuri's Night team while you are partying hard.
Combined, we want to achieve at least 169,000 credits and hopefully 315,000 credits. Both numbers correspond to the orbital parameters of the apogee at 315 km and of perigee at 169 km of his record breaking flight (In case we will generate more, I will just convert it to feet ;))
You can do that by following the instructions below "Join Constellation" to install the little software called BOINC and attach it to the project you like (hopefully Constellation is one of it ;)) and by joining our Yuri’s Night team on the chosen BOINC project for the duration of the Yuri's Night events.

I myself will temporarily leave my team and join team Yuri and donate my idle CPU cycles to the benefit of all. Gentlemen, it's a space race. I will see you there, let's go!

BOINC Team: Yuri's Night Team (Teamsite on Constellation, but each BOINC project should have this by now)
BOINC Team Stats: boincstats.com

Join Constellation

This project uses BOINC. If you're already running BOINC, select Attach to Project. If not, download BOINC.
When prompted, enter "http://aerospaceresearch.net/constellation/"
If you're running a command-line or pre-5.0 version of BOINC, create an account first

great,

1 Russia 313594 (almost reached apogee)
2 L'Alliance Francophone 241994 (reached almost semimajor axis)
3 Russia Team 184564 (reached perigee, a little bit more)

what a coincident! :D

Yuri's Space Race "Gagarin's Flight" ended today and we have a fantastic result.
Overall all 17 teams generated 2,207,367 credits.
In corelatation to our orbit altitude credit-o-meter, we have 6 teams that reached perigee with 169,000 meters and even 3 teams reached apogee with 315,000 meters.
After some place changing, Russia was again first in space, followed by L'Alliance Francophone and TitanesDC. Russia Team, who started this race, followed 4th.

All results can be seen here!

THANK you all teams, we will repeat that!

I will personally stay in Yuri's Night group until it has reached perigee :).

As member of Russia Team I would like to thank everyone who attend our little party! That was a good race.

And now I have a thought... What if we (I mean the Constellation project) organise a series of annual races on some space-related dates? I remember several of them:
12th of April - first man in space
21th of July - first man on the Moon
4th of October - first orbital flight of Sputnik-1
maybe some other...

It could be like it is done at PrimeGrid project. What do you think?

Great race !

@Bronevik : maybe not as much as Primegrid...but it seems to be a good idea. :)

@Horn : what about badges (like in Yoyo or enigma projects) on special occasions like this one (or projects) ?
(see Rechenkraft page : http://www.rechenkraft.net/wiki/index.php?title=Yoyo%40home/badges)

Hi Everyone,

today the BOINC Team: Yuri's Night team reached 169k credits. that was my goal and I stayed with my account as long as this credit count.
So I switch back to our AerospaceResearch.net team.

I want to say thank you to all of you who claimed credits for this team and who crunched for good. We will redo that race next year as well! :)

BIG THANKS to all of you space cadets,

Andreas
