14 new Einstein@Home pulsar discoveries in Fermi-LAT data

June 15, 2021

Congratulations to all Einstein@Home volunteers, whose computers have found 14 new pulsars in data from the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on board the Fermi gamma-ray satellite.  These new pulsars are listed on the FGRP discoveries webpage, along with the names of the volunteers whose computers identified the new systems with the highest significance.  In total, Einstein@Home has now found 39 new gamma-ray pulsars in Fermi LAT data.

Two new videos about Einstein@Home

There are two new YouTube videos about Einstein@Home we think you might enjoy watching.

If you want to learn more about the scientific background of the project and recent discoveries have a look at Bruce Allen's talk about Einstein@Home at the 2021 BOINC Workshop.

Results from all-sky search in LIGO O2 data published

March 09, 2021

The results of our all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves in public data from LIGO's second observing run (O2) have now been published in The Astrophysical Journal. The publication describes the search with the best sensitivity ever achieved by such an all-sky survey up to 500 Hz.

Many heart-felt thanks to all of you who made this work possible by donating cycles from your computers!
