Posted November 3, 2015

Help CERN scientists simulate particle collisions by contributing your computing power.

CERN Public Computing Challenge 2015 will run for a month, and aim to involve as much of the general public throughout the world as possible.

CERN Public Computing Challenge 2015 will run for a month, and aim to involve as much of the general public throughout the world as possible.

Why? CERN scientists want to compare theories of our Universe with experiments from CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. For that, they need to simulate billions of collisions, far more than their own computers can manage.

How? Follow the link at the bottom of this text to download and run CERN’s “virtual machine” software. It does the simulations while you keep using your computer as usual.

Every week, the participants have an opportunity to compete for a “Challenge Crunchers” and “Challenge Pioneers” status, by submitting the most tasks and completing the most collision events.
