The Question: Do aliens exist? It is hard to imagine no matter what God or higher being you believe in; that we Earthlings are the only life forms in existence. The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) site estimates there are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe. A recent German super-computer simulation estimates that the number may be as high as 500 billion! FastWalker505 is from United States

Project description

This is a test project, to demonstrate the use of the CERN-developed CernVM and BOINCVM systems to harness volunteer cloud computing power for full-fledged LHC event physics simulation on volunteer computers. It is the first of what is expected to be a series of physics applications running on the LHC@home 2.0 platform. These applications will exploit virtual machine technology, enabling volunteers to contribute to the huge computational task of searching for new fundamental particles at CERN's LHC.

    Warning: do not upgrade beyond VirtualBox 4.3.12 !!

    Due to several problems being reported with the latest version of VirtualBox (4.3.14), we strongly advise volunteers not to upgrade beyond VirtualBox 4.3.12.

    Server migration completed

    The migration of Test4Theory to the new vLHC@home server is completed. In case of problems, we advice to detach and re-attach to the project.

    Thanks for your understanding and for your contributions!

    Migration to new server and change of project name

    On Monday July 14, the Test4theory project will be migrated to a new server, and also get a new name: "vLHC@home".

    Following 3 years of running Theory simulations under CernVM and BOINC, we plan to gradually expand the project and add more applications on CernVM with simulations from the LHC experiments. Thus the new name: "Virtual LHC@home".

    The old server URL will be redirected, and we expect that the transition should be transparent to BOINC clients. The forums and BOINC user database with accumulated credit will remain the same as today. There is a slight risk that running tasks may fail and that the credit for these will be lost. We would in that case recommend to detach and re-attach to the project. Further advice will be given here in the News forum once the upgrade is completed.

    We would like to express our warmest thanks to all of you for your contributions to Test4Theory, and hope that you will continue to stay with us in the future!

    Pleasse upgrade to BOINC 7.x clients

    Most users of this project already use BOINC 7.x clients, however there still a few people who are using old BOINC 6.x clients and the old cernvm wrapper.

    We plan to upgrade to a new server in the near future and to phase out the old wrapper, so please upgrade your BOINC clients to BOINC 7.x. The current version available is BOINC client 7.2.42, and most OS packages are available with a recent 7.2 version that will give better functionality and a better user experience.

    Thanks for your contributions and your collaboration!

    ...the team.

    VM connection problem solved

    The problem that started after midnight Geneva time this morning has now been solved.

    Our support team was working from Rome, Geneva and Silicon Valley, and all on a Sunday. This is the spirit of Test4Theory and we thank everyone involved, and all our volunteers for their patience.
