18 A NEW WAY FOR DOING RESEARCH! Obj. 1. GLORIA, create a social network for researching Astronomy Obj. 2. GLORIA is going to grow in size Obj. 3. Adding to GLORIA new scientifi c issues Obj. 4. Engage newcomers to GLORIA community Obj. 5. Make GLORIA sustainable into the future
19 Objective. 1 Create a social network for researching astronomy A web community is going to teleoperate telescopes and analyse their data
20 Obj. 1: Create a social network for researching astronomy
22 Objective. 2 Increase the number of telescopes How to connect more telescopes to GLORIA?
23 Objetive 2: Increase the number of telescopes
24 Example 1 of an amateur astronomer
25 Example 2 of amateur astronomers. La Hita observatory
26 Other telescopes GLORIA Telescope Sharing Similar to P2P file sharing philosophy Users share observing time through GLORIA Observing time will be weighted by the karma of the telescope GLORIA earns a % of observing time for its community You share your files because you can get more i.e. 20% Users who may have robotic telescopes: Amateur astronomers Amateur Astronomy clubs Professional astronomers Professional observatories
27 GLORIA Telescope Sharing: example A user robotizes his/her telescope with GLORIA software His telescope initially is rated with a karma (0-10) 7,3 The time sharing could be: The user gets 20 % local observing time 60 % other locations observing time The user gives 60 % local observing time to other telescopes owners 20 % local observing time GLORIA community
28 GLORIA Telescope Sharing: example Pros: The user can observe in other locations or hemisphere The user can observe even with telescopes with higher karma Bigger aperture, technology, seeing, etc A user robotizes his/her telescope with GLORIA software If the user is not going to use his observing time, he can donate it, increasing his/her karma Cons: The user must robotize his/her telescope with GLORIA software The user loses a 20% of his/her observing time
29 Objective. 3 Increase the number of scientifi c issues GLORIA is allowing to research in new Astronomical issues How to add new experiments to GLORIA?
30 User friendly interface
31 Objective 3.1: Increase the number of on-line experiment (i.e. The Sun )
32 Off-line experiments
33 Objective 3.2: Increase the number of off-line experiment (i.e. Galaxy Zoo )
34 Objective. 4 Increase the citizen scientists How GLORIA comunity can grow up?
35 Traditional way July 11th, 2008 (21:00h). Dissemination activity in CosmoCaixa Madrid: The stormy pass of the solar system
40 Objective 4: Engage newcomers
42 Objectives: How to motivate citizen scientist?. Obj. 4. Engage newcomers to GLORIA community GLORIA itself is a powerfull dissemination tool viral marketing Obj Live broadcasting of astronomical events Total solar eclipses, auroras, etc Obj Telescopes and community members will collaborate in: Collaborative Multimedia P2P broadcasting Collaborative P2P data storaging
44 Objective. 5 Increase the funds How GLORIA network can survive to the future?
45 Objective 5: Make GLORIA susteinable Core part The infrastructure for keeping GLORIA alive is very cheap, A central computer All the work is done by the community supporting the addition of future telescopes Supporting comunity, FAQ and documentation Distributed part Telescopes are maintained by their owners Funding core part Donation, sponsors Publicity Selling advising and engineering services
47 4 GLORIA System GS Architecture o Components: Presentation GLORIA Services o Paradigm: SOA  o Technologies: Web Services  Liferay  MySQL  RTS Network o Operating system: GRTS o Interface: Web services HL Protocol
48 4 GLORIA System (karma&policies) KARMA: It is an index to measure the participation of a user in GLORIA o Examples: Meneame, Diggs. Why is necessary? o We need to distribute limited resources (observation time) among users. How to calculate this value? o Each user performs actions on GLORIA resources (images, telescopes, etc..). o Each action has an associated value (depending on policy). How to distribute the observation time? o Economic model. Introduction of a new currency: GLORIUS. o More karma, more money. o Assignment of observation time through auctions. How can users increase their karma? o Participating in social resources (fora, news, etc...). o Evaluating resources and being evaluated (votable objects). o Executing & designing experiments.
51 5 GRTS Foreground Ciclope Astro o o RTS2 o o o o Web 2.0 Includes servers to handle different devices Mounts LX200 and Gemini CCD Cameras like SBIG or DMK and DBK FCUSB to control DC focus motors Controls a large number of devices No graphical interface XML-RPC interface Allows planned observations
52 5 GRTS Architecture Idea: To integrate a telescope in GLORIA we need a software component that allows us to connect different devices with GLORIA System. Questions: How should this component be? What are its requirements? How can this component interact with these devices?
53 5 GRTS Architecture Idea: Serving the purpose of telescope automation, we need to have the appropriate drivers for each of its devices. This is an essential requirement in the way of teleoperation. Questions: The telescopes can be located anywhere in the world. How can GLORIA System interact with them in the same way?
54 5 GRTS Architecture Idea: GLORIA System needs to talk with all the robotic telescopes of the network. So we have to establish a common way of communication, in terms of link and protocol. Questions: Now, how does this GRTS communicate with different devices?
55 5 GRTS Architecture Idea: Each device must have a client component that GRTS will use as a connector to interact with it. Thus, GRTS gets to be able to operate with any device. Questions: How is GRTS inside?
56 5 GRTS Architecture GRTS is composed by: 1 RTI (Robotic Telescope Interface) 1 RTC (Robotic Telescope Controller) N RTD (Robotic Telescope Device) Distributed architecture! RTI Implements Web Services consumed by GLORIA System Speaks GLORIA High Level Protocol RTC Internal RTS Device Controller Operates with all RTD Main features: Device Directory, Scheduler. RTD Depends on the device type: Camera, Dome, Mount, Focuser, Database,... Uses preconfigured connector Speaks GLORIA Low Level Protocol
57 5 GRTS Examples (OM)
58 5 GRTS Examples (TAD) Vixen (VMC260L) o o Focal:3020mm Aperture: 260mm Losmandy Titan o Gemini II SBIG ST-10 o Filter Wheel: CFW9-C Dome o Velleman E/S card Webcam
60 6 Future collaboration GLORIA Team o o Generate documentation for: robotizing telescopes Developing new drivers and connectors to RTD connecting RTS to GLORIA System Maintaining FAQ Giving technical support to CESAR Other Team o o o o Send GLORIA team feedback and bugs report Participate in the developing of new software components (drivers, web components for exp., etc) Participate in the SRS Designing new experiments
