Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. PlanetQuest is a grid computing project for discovering new planets and classifying stars from Earth-based observatories' images. The PlanetQuest project is currently still under development, and will utilize the BOINC platform. To search for new planets, PlanetQuest developed the Transit Detection Algorithm, photometric method, which can automatically detect new planets, using the optical information from ground-based telescopes. The TDA has also been adapted for use in NASA's Kepler Mission. Some of the data gathered from Kepler will be processed by PlanetQuest.show more
