I had a new badge (bronze ribbon) appear this morning. It is marked "commentary science". I have no idea what that means or how it relates to Gaia data. Unfortunately this appears to be yet another project where the Administrator(s) do not feel it is necessary to communicate with the lowly plebes who run their work.   :thumbdown:

I wonder how this project differs from Milkyway@Home?
I never see much from the M@H team which is a bit disappointing.
I'm tempted to use my VM to start this project on 1 pc...... maybe.... dunno.1 cruncher just isn't enough and I don't think I can be bothered putting the VM/Linux on all my machines.
