First Einstein@Home Discovery!

We are delighted to announce that Einstein@Home has made its first discovery: a radio pulsar, found in data from the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.

Details are available in a paper published online by Science today. Science has given us permission to post a copy of the abstract and paper here. They are also on the Science website here. The manuscript is also in the arXiv preprint archive (use the PDF link in the top right corner).

A press-conference webcast about this first discovery is also available.

The name of the pulsar is PSR J2007+2722. It is a 40.8 Hz isolated pulsar, 17,000 light years distant in the plane of the Galaxy, and is most likely a Disrupted Recycled Pulsar (DRP). If so, it is the fastest DRP yet discovered.

The Einstein@Home volunteers whose computers found the pulsar with the highest significance are Chris and Helen Colvin, from Ames Iowa and Daniel Gebhardt, Musikinformatik, Universitaet Mainz.

Additional information about the discovery is available on our web pages. I will also talk about it at the London Citizen Cyberscience Summit on September 2nd.

We thank ALL Einstein@Home volunteers for their support, and look forward eagerly to our next discovery.

Bruce Allen, Director, Einstein@Home

My heart skipped a beat or

My heart skipped a beat or three !! This awesome .... :-) :-)

As Homer Simpson says : "it works on so many levels". It is indeed a multiple first and is a boon to the entire DC community. [ Having said that I am ever so cheesy grin that it was E@H - but that's my personal bias :-) ].

Looking at the detail, the discovery is at least mild on the weirdo scale - not in the middle of the pulsar garden - and I will eagerly await further definition of this beastie ....

[ I think I see harmonics ( of ~ 40Hz ) on the plot, more or less of equal strength and a suggestion of sidebands. I'm going to stare at the animations for a while ... ]

Cheers, Mike.

( edit ) Ah I can imagine, I reckon, the annular/crater like morphology of the emission cone, with our line-of-sight trekking across the outer edge, dipping in, running across the crater floor ( not hitting the exact centre but not far off it either ) and then slipping up and over the other side ( with a mild asymmetry between the outer rim slopes on entry and exit ). The pulse profile is the equivalent of a surveyors elevation map along a traverse line/cut - likely not an actual physical feature of the pulsar surface but in the sense of variation in emission strength with surface position. The edge of the glowing yellow cone in the animation is the peak of the 'crater rim'.

Yes I saw that, contributors from UK and Russia putatively. I also thought that this announcement may trigger a spot of gold-rush fever ..... there's pulsars in them thar hills! :-)

Cheers, Mike.

( edit ) I think the E@H PALFA/ABP WU fraction ( of total distributed ) is going to increase too ???

( edit ) From here

Quote:
“This is the first time I’ve worked closely with radio astronomers making a discovery,†said Allen. “It was like watching 5-year-olds tearing Christmas presents. Or like watching someone throw chunks of meat at starving sharks.â€


So maybe any gold rush will influx from both sides : computing contributors and those that seek to harness .... thus with more ( catalytic ) power to both.

I'm disappointed at the rate

I'm disappointed at the rate with which new volunteers are joining Einstein@Home. My hope was that the publicity would get us 1000 new volunteers per hour, for a week. The current rate is about 150 per hour.

Could anyone suggest what might be done to improve this, in the next days? One suggestion was, if you read an on-line article about E@H, please add something to the 'COMMENT' area below the article, saying "to sign up, point your web browser to http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/ and follow the instructions: Join Einstein@Home".

This is a good idea!

Maybe we can add also "if you are already signed up but your RAC is <10... no chance for you to discover a new pulsar :-D"

What about contributors directly contacting one's local media outlets with a suggestion ( eg. provide E@H website link ) to follow-up/research the story, evidently in the science category. One couldn't/wouldn't have to speak on behalf of E@H, but simply give them a heads up on the discovery. Our national broadcaster ABC and most of the DownUnda major networks et al have some variety of online contact from the general public to their newsrooms available ( email, web form etc .. ). This could be virally effective.

Cheers, Mike.

This is a good idea. Many local radio and TV stations and newspapers would probably be more interested in doing a story if they felt there was a local person who could talk about their participation in the project.

Well, there may not be much we can do for now. With hot weather in the northern hemisphere, a lot of people have undoubtedly decided to shutdown their computers to help keep things cool. (I've had to shut down must of my computers for that, as I've indicated elsewhere.)

The rate of volunteers

The rate of volunteers signing up is increasing. We're now up to 4800 in the first 24 hours, so about 200/hour. And in the past ten hours the rate has been 250/hour. That's an improvement!

Welcome to Einstein@Home!

Yes, the jargon can be a bit frightening at first :-) , but don't hesitate to ask questions here, for example in the "Science" forum. Learning about Pulsars, neutron Stars, astrophysics and the strange world of general relativity is a big fun part of Einstein@Home.

(You might not be able to post messages initially in all forums here, but after returning the first validated results from your PC, you'll be able to do so as an active member. This is a anti-spam feature we had to adopt to stop spammers flooding the forum).

In the meantime, there are some links on the home page that might be useful to get an introduction into the science of Einstein@Home. I recommend especially the following:

http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/radiopulsar/html/index.php Info on the Pulsar search here at Einstein@Home

http://www.ligo.caltech.edu/einstein.ram (Realplayer required) A movie on gravitational waves and detectors built to catch them.

http://www.einstein-online.info/ A portal for information on Relativity for the general public.

Happy crunching

This is a good idea. Many local radio and TV stations and newspapers would probably be more interested in doing a story if they felt there was a local person who could talk about their participation in the project.

Bruce, 2 or 3 years ago I noted how many users there, BOINCwide, worldwide. If memory serves correctly, it was in the 1,500,000 to 1,800,000 range. BOINCStats now indicates there are 2,006,833 users of BOINC (for any project) worldwide. Thus, the approximate range of daily recruitment of users for any project is about 450 to 700 people (rounding the minimum down a little and the max up a bit).

Is there some stats page, BOINCStats or other, that tracks joining rates?

I wonder if BOINCStats is tracking active users or just those that have signed up (and possible never even crunched a single WU)?

Referring to your [url="http://einsteinathome.org/node/195234&nowrap=true#105447]first post on current new crunch join rate[/url], or any subsequent posts, well, I'd have to say that on the surface this current rate seems somewhat better than the overall, BOINCwide, join rate I'm estimating for over the past 2-3 years. On the other hand, there's the issue of whether those that join actually crunch (regardless of RAC0 and are retained.

I do not totally agree that [url="http://einsteinathome.org/node/195234&nowrap=true#105451"]this[/url] is a good idea. To "get the story out," it should come from the project scientists or, at the least, the project scientists should provide some pointers of what they'd like mentioned if the bulk of spreading the word is left to the crunchers.

I say this based on me reading of [url="http://www.amazon.com/Leading-Minds-Leadership-Howard-Gardner/dp/0465082807/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1281902559&sr=1-1"]Leading Minds: An Anatomy Of Leadership[/url] by Howard Gardner and Emma Laskin (1996). It's too bad there was not more to say in that book about leadership in the information age.

Along similar lines, consider that a magazine such as [url="http://discovermagazine.com/"]Discover[/url] has, IIRC, had few articles on Distributed Computing in the last 2-3 years. When SETI is in an article, it's the SETI Institute, with discussions with Seth Shostak, for example. Rarely, if ever, is the SETI@Home project included in such an article.

I believe project scientists need to take an active part in spreading the word: the "story" to get out there is your story, and crunchers could only assist in getting the word out in a limited fashion.

Hence the sentence I wrote after the one quoted :

Quote:

Bruce did actively lead - he flew to the US and back from Germany - to fit into an NSF web program slot which included the lead PALFA scientist James M. Cordes and BOINC originator David Anderson.

I hear what you say, Sarge. It' more a pragmatic issue of E@H not having the funds/time etc ( this applies to many E@H activities, indeed why E@H exists at all ). Ideally a dedicated press office/publicist/etc would be great.

DownUnda at least, the press is hard to distract from it's own profits, 'general interest' stories don't fly too well ( apart from cats stuck in trees ) and anything without footage is dead in the water. As science discoveries certainly don't fit the shock/horror/scandal paradigm one is left with viral/non-broadcast methods.

Cheers, Mike.

Both, as you could've seen on the BOINC combined stat. You mentioned the total number of users, while the active number is just one column to the right.

( edit ) Here's some other Aussie sites reporting on the discovery too ..... here, there and also here.

( edit ) Actually the timing on some releases appears to precede my contact with them, by my recollection. No matter ...... what matters is E@H is getting some good coverage DownUnda. Contributors ought still poke their local media outlets regardless ..... ;-)

Mike, good job. Anyone,

Mike, good job.
Anyone, please don't take my earlier points as criticism of Bruce or the project.
Here's something I noticed last night, though, after seeing Mike's post before the edits:

Suppose someone reads the article inspired by Mike's contact. No mention in that brief blurb indicates E@H runs under BOINC and where to get BOINC.
OK, so the really interested people will figure, I can find that out, I'll Google Einstein@Home (or use Yahoo or some other search engine).

http://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=A0oGdGo.vGpMHCIBrmdXNyoA?ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-701&p=einstein%40home&SpellState=&fr2=sp-qrw-corr-top
Luckily, on Yahoo, the first hit is to the main page of the project site, and one can quickly find how to "join." The second hit, the Wiki, is filled with gobbeldygook. If I hadn't been using BOINC for years already, and if I weren't very interested, and if I weren't the type to sort to take the time to sort through it and find what I need, I would've stopped looking.

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp&q=einstein%40home&aq=f&aqi=g-z1g7&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=C1MZYU71qTKrmHpP4M_nxkYkMAAAAqgQFT9DFpfM&fp=ea2cd8eab02d18af
It's not as good with Google. The second hit is the Wiki. (No, not a BOINC Wiki. A usual Wiki.) The third is better, going to the Max Planck Institute. Links from there are easy to follow.
Most or all of the rest of the hits are the current news about the 3 "citizen" scientists (interesting term).

What I see as goals that need work: how to get the story further out there about BOINC and easy-to-follow information about how to get the program. Then, the story about individual projects, E@H in particular or otherwise.

There are about 25 on-line articles in German, as well as a number of printed newspaper stories during the past week. Do a 'Google News' search for "Einstein@Home" or "J2007+2722" to find them.

What if the e@h created a facebook page?

http://www.facebook.com/pages/EinsteinHome/111138845604847?ref=search. It still requires advertisement and easy to navigate information about how to obtain BOINC in order to attach to the project (or any other project).

The newer layout for pages on facebook appear to be limited as far as what information can be added. You can pretty much add anything you want on the older layouts. This particular BOINC page needs to somehow be referenced on any E@H page.

The "AJAX" pages are essentially WIKIs making their way into Facebook.
I know this because when I was an undergrad, I DJd for my college radio station. A little over a year ago, I created a page for fellow former DJs of the station. Recently, when I typed in the call letters to get to my page, an AJAX page for the station also showed the AJX page, which was pretty much the WIKI, word for word.
If E@H desires a more personal and direct presence on Facebook or any other social netoworking site, either the project admins should start the page there, or authorize someone, such as a current and good moderator to do so.
