No, you really don't need to worry about this. All that changes is that our ability to do live predictions for earth lessens. But all the data we produce is scientifically meaningful. The aggregation of our classifications into science results is starting.

In a science meeting the other day I mentioned our ability to do predictions for the Mercury and Venus as well; this particularly attracted the attention of one of the science groups who have missions currently in orbit of those and are planning more missions coming up.  So while we are getting less effective as Earth defenders we could morph into saviours of the solar system.

Yes, sorry if I gave the impression that we were approaching the finishing line, we've got plenty more we can do with our data that would be scientifically useful! I just wanted to let you all know that we *are*doing something with all your hard work. It's just .... well, complicated!

Thanks again for all your time, effort and enthusiasm,

Chris.

Sounds like our work is not yet done! Saviours of the Solar System eh? Now there's a T shirt idea... ;)
Thanks for the blog update Chris.

Thank you for all the updates on what's going on behind the scenes, and the first SSW-based paper submitted for publication, wow!  Congratulations Neel!

Well I thought that was a good read. "The fact that most were no faster than the solar wind would have meant that without spacecraft like STEREO and ACE they would probably have gone largely undetected." Which means we are helping build a more accurate picture of what's out there. And that's real science!

New blog post!

Steve reveals all here! -  http://blogs.zooniverse.org/solarstormwatch/2011/07/incomingtracei/

(about how he produces the real-time forecasts from all your clicks. Why, what did you think I meant?!  ;) ).

Thanks once again for all your time and enthusiasm,

Chris.
