Einstein@Home Volunteers Discover Four "Young" Gamma-Ray Pulsars

November 26, 2013

Congratulations to our volunteers:

Thomas M. Jackson, Kentucky, USA
Mak-ino, Japan
Doug Lean, Australia
Hans-Peter Tobler, Germany
NEMO computing cluster, UW-Milwaukee, USA
Chen, USA
David Z, Canada
Test, France

whose computers have found 4 new gamma-ray pulsars in data from the Large Area Telescope on board NASA's Fermi Satellite. These are the first gamma-ray pulsars ever discovered by Einstein@Home; only a few dozen such objects (spinning neutron stars whose pulsations are only visible via their gamma rays) are known.


New radio pulsar discovered in Arecibo data

October 23, 2013

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!
