    @lucknlol even if one manages to download it, some special super-pcs are required to crunch them apparently

    it looks like a picture you accidentally take with your finger in front of the camera

    @lucknlol well some cloud provider could put it to their storage so you could just mount it like common crawl dataset on aws it is 250tb and you can map reduce it for a few bucks cause you only mount storage.

    I think it can be good marketing action.

    @asgs there is hubble telescope data on aws that is 110tb and you can reprocess it using astroquery for 2$ so I assume 5pb would be 100$ not much for a 55 million years of data.

    Don’t underestimate the power of the cloud.

    @vane better pray for mit's deep pockets to fund the hosting and cloud access

    @vane cloud is different, but good to know about Astroquery

    @lucknlol if dataset would be open and they got approved then hosting is free, the only problem I see is transferring data to cloud but in US you can always order aws snowmobile with 100pb storage 😂
