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.


Three new Einstein@Home papers

July 26, 2017

Three papers full of new Einstein@Home science are available now on the arXiv preprint server. First low-frequency Einstein@Home all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves in Advanced LIGO data describes our first results from a search in data from the first observation run “O1” of the Advanced LIGO instruments.
