Hi!
I'm new to the Einstein@Home project. It's nice to have another BOINC project with a graphics display, I'm just curious what the graphics actually mean.

From what I gather, its some sort of star chart (i think I spotted one of the "dippers" in there), but what other information is being displayed?

Thanks!

The screen saver is explained at http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/starsphere.php. For a next time you want to go there, go to the Einstein front page, then choose Screensaver description.
