Only about 0.2% of the obtained results should be recalculated due to bugs in the early versions of the apps (the results obtained with the version 1.04 mostly). All other results are included in the final database.

Not bad 20% in 24 days.
This is the beta part of the project??
Or when we'll finish the remaining 80%, the project will close?

This is for the whole project, not for the beta part.

Reaching 100% will mean that we processed all the materials currently available in the COD (to be more precise only ~94% of COD contents can be processed). However, about 1500 new materials are added to the COD every month. These materials also should be processed. Current computing power allows to do that in less than 10 hours.

So, the project will not be closed completely, but the new WUs will be generated only once or twice per month to keep the database of the diffraction patterns in sync with the COD.

By Active phase you mean reaching 100% then another phase would be crunching the 1500 new materials as they come in?

That's great, having such a great impact always feels nice!

Sounds good. I'll have myself open to accepting any new WU's. In fact, you can put me first on your list :) I love the cobblestones and the prospect of contributing to the entirety of a project.

Vlad, tell me this: when we have everything processed and all the substances computed and worked on... where might we see the results in the future? How, i.e., will this aid us in everyday life?

Having a great time computing... Cesium*...

I hope that the open-access database of simulated x-ray and neutron diffraction patterns will help the researches who work in material science. At least they will be able to verify their experimental data (and the diffraction is one of the basic methods of analyzing the structure of material) with the results of simulation. Those who work with the nanocrystallites will be able to estimate the size of crystallites in their samples. Additionally, one can try to create the automated data processing service like this one but aimed at nanocrystalline samples, which will use the database of diffraction patterns we are creating.

X-ray cristallography is used every day in a lot of scientific research, from new materials to protein folding. Example: fold.it
