Einstein@Home in latest LIGO Magazine

The new LIGO magazine is out and it features an article about Einstein@Home. You read a pdf file of the article here. The article was written by M. Alessandra Papa, Benjamin Knispel, Holger Pletsch and Bernd Machenschalk from the Einstein@Home team, looking at the project's history, infrastructure, and different searches.

Do have a look at this and the earlier issues of the LIGO Magazine to learn more about the LIGO gravitational detectors.

Benjamin Knispel, project scientist

Very interesting and enjoyable readings, even for someone like me with only a very faint understanding of the whole scientific aspects. Lots of dreaming for decades, though!

Thank you for pointing it out; also, afaic, for the reminder of these other sites, as I forgot to look there for quite a long time now!

thanks for posting that...

thanks for posting that... "for a 100-Hz pulsar a single photon is registered every 3,000,000 rotations!"

Truly amazing that so much science can be lifted from so few clues.

According to what has been written in LIGO magazine, during upgrade to AdvancedLIGO, GEO600 continued his observations. Will data from the GEO600 be analyzed, or perhaps have already been analyzed?
