Project downtime on Tue Jan 23rd

January 17, 2018

Hi everyone,

We are going to shut down the project next Tuesday, Jan 23rd at around 10 AM CET for an upgrade of our database backend systems to make them ready for the years to come. We're going to upgrade hardware parts, operating systems as well the databases themselves, which is why we need to shut down the entire project, including the BOINC backend and this very website.

Generally you don't have to do anything at your end.

Happy New Year from Einstein@Home!

January 03, 2018

Dear Volunteers,

I want to thank you for your continuing contributions to Einstein@Home, and to wish all of you a healthy and happy 2018.

The past year has seen several important steps forward, including publication of the first results from Einstein@Home searches in
advanced LIGO data, and the discovery of many new gamma ray pulsars in data from the Fermi satellite.

Online questionnaire about citizen science and volunteer computing

November 15, 2017

Please help Lo Lee, a first-year doctoral student from Library and Information Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, by filling in an online survey about Einstein@Home and BOINC. Lo Lee is doing a project on citizen science that aims to assess to what extent citizen science can be designed as an inclusive online learning environment to embrace volunteer diversity.
