I may be wrong, but this whole thing seems like a ploy to get us to use our cpu's to process the algorithms to analyze the graphs and the "game" is just us guessing at whether we agree with the computer. It seems like there are only some of the plates that's really take the users inputs while others tell you whether you are right or wrong. Well, for it to tell you you're wrong, the computer would have had to already computed the transits. If that's the case, then WE aren't contributing anything, only lending our computer processing power to CCP and the University and then being told we are idiots for not seeing something that HAD to be computed via mathematical computations based on statistical data points.
Just saying, if I'm not getting the bitcoins from the mining, at least make the prizes commencerate with the CPU farming I put in and not based on some random guesses where the elusive transits are.
