New improved Gravitational Wave app & Happy New Year 2024 special

January 16, 2024

Dear crunchers!

We would like to share with you two things:

a) the GPU accelerated GW app is now much less memory hungry and less likely to produce errors. If you had previously opted out of the GW app, we invite you to reconsider and give the new version a chance.

b) to celebrate the new app, we have a holiday season special offer for our crunchers: you'll get twice the BOINC credits for the GW App results.

A new Fermi Gamma Ray Pulsar Catalog has just been published!

November 28, 2023

The latest catalog of gamma-ray pulsars discovered in data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has just been published in the Astrophysical Journal (the article is linked here).

Einstein@Home and its methods (run on a dedicated computing cluster) have contributed 53 of the 294 confirmed pulsars listed in the catalog.  Even more impressive: about half of all pulsars ever discovered via their gamma-ray pulsations have been found by our project.

New Zooniverse project “Pulsar Seekers”

October 31, 2023

Dear Einstein@Home volunteers,

we've just launched a new Zooniverse project called "Pulsar Seekers" to help classify radio pulsar candidates. Please, use your eyes and your intellect to help us to find new pulsars:
