New radio pulsar discovered in Arecibo data
Congratulations to our volunteers James Drews, UW-Madison and juergenstoetzel. Their computers have discovered a new radio pulsar J1859+03, in data from the Arecibo Observatory PALFA survey.
Drews works at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and is the ninth-ranked Einstein@Home volunteer, measured by total computing credits. This is his second pulsar discovery!
Further details about these and other Einstein@Home pulsar discoveries can be found on this web page, and will be published in due course.
