Einstein@Home volunteers discover three new radio pulsars in Arecibo data

Einstein@Home volunteers have discovered three new radio pulsars (J1901+0510, J1858+0319, and J1857+0259) in Arecibo PALFA data! Congratulations to:

It is nice and astonishing,

It is nice and astonishing, that we found and hopefully will find so many pulsars in the radiospektrum, - I believe meanwhile more than 30 at all, - but not a single one in the x-ray spectrum by the FGRP1 application and this is near end - more than 90% done -. But it was said, that ATLAS found 9 of them out of LAT data by in principal the same algorithm. Is this a question of missing manpower to analyse further the data we compressed, or a question of the primary data, the direction the satelite was looking at for example?

Kind regards
Martin

The protocol for publishing

The protocol for publishing results of the Einstein@Home FGRP search is still under discussion by the Fermi collaboration. Until this has been settled, we can't talk about any such results.
