Einstein@Home passes 1 Petaflop of computing power!
Congratulations and thank you to all Einstein@Home volunteers: sometime shortly after January 1st 2013, Einstein@Home passed the 1 Petaflop computing-power barrier. To put this in context, according to the current (November 2012) Top-500 computing list, there are only 23 computers on our planet that deliver this much computing power.
(One Petaflop is 1,000,000,000,000,000 floating point operations per second.)
Congratulations and thank you again, and keep on crunching!
