Einstein@Home volunteers discover nine new radio pulsars!

In the past weeks, Einstein@Home volunteers have discovered nine new new radio pulsars! Seven were found in data from the Parkes Multi-Beam Pulsar Survey (PMPS) and two in data from Arecibo. Congratulations to:

  • * Robert D Burbeck (Derbyshire, UK)
    * Harald Buchholz (Springfield, Virginia, USA)
    * Andrew Fullford (Texas, USA)
    * Pavlo Ovchinnikov (Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine)
    * Nemo Cluster (Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA)
    * ATLAS Cluster (Hannover, Germany)
    * Victor1st (UK)
    * Dušan Pirc (Domzale, Slovenia)
    * Riaan Strydom (South Africa)
    * Edelgas (Germany)
    * Craig G (USA)
    * Brian Adrian (Dade City, Florida, USA)
    * Frederick J. Pfitzer (Phoenix, Arizona, USA)
    * Benjamin Rosenthal Library, Queens College, CUNY (New York City, USA)
    * Masor_DC (Czech Republic)
    * Gordon E. Hartman (US Navy Team, Dover, Pennsylvania, USA)
    * Eric Nietering (Dearborn, Michigan, USA)
    * Tim Taylor (USA)
    * Christoph Donat (Ingolstadt, Germany)
    * gone (USA)

Further details about these new discoveries can be found on this web page for PMPS discoveries and this web page for Arecibo discoveries, and will be published in due course. These discoveries bring the Einstein@Home discovery total to 22 new radio pulsars since the beginning of 2012!

Which bring us back to an average of one pulsar discovery per week.

Great!

Congratulations! But how

Congratulations!

But how you do new discoveries in PMPS data if processing of this data pack ended long ago (at least 6-8 months ago if remember correctly).
Or you still do postprocessing of data from E@H on server side and write papers?

Great that they are

Great that they are recognized. Maybe a star next to their name or some other sign on the web site would also be great. I am crunching with ATI GPU now so my fingers are crossed,

G'day Dingo! :-) In about

G'day Dingo! :-)

In about a three to four weeks or so ( all being well ) I'll likely be releasing a screensaver for E@H that includes a virtual 'tour of the sky' highlighting especially the discoveries made in the pulsar department. The pulsar signal information will be displayed along with attribution of the particular users (ie. with their personal detail limited to that level seen in Bruce's first post here ) involved in the discoveries, as the tour pauses at each way point. So that will also go some way to immortalising those lucky crunchers!! :-)

Cheers, Mike.

If we make a couple of

If we make a couple of discoveries here and there we need not believe things will go on like this for ever. Just as we hit water when we dig in the earth, so we discover the incomprehensible sooner or later.

I think if you select the project tab in BoincMgr, select the Einstein project, and click the "remove" button you will probably avoid future Einstein notices. I don't know what it will do to ones already acquired.

Hmmm... the web interface shows

http://einsteinathome.org/host/5431001/tasks&offset=0&show_names=0&state=0

that one of your hosts submitted results as late as yesterday, and there are still results in progress. If that host had detached, the results should be shown as cancelled iirc. From your previous message I was under the impression that you want to stop participation in E@H, so you may want to double check.

Cheers
