Einstein@home downtime

July 18, 2013

Einstein@Home will be shutdown several hours today to fix a filesystem problem.


Gravitational Wave S6 Directed Search (CasA) launched

July 17, 2013

After a pause of about two weeks Einstein@Home is searching for gravitational waves again. The new search application is called "Gravitational Wave S6 Directed Search (CasA)". It is the first "directed" search performed by Einstein@Home, targeting only at a single direction in the sky ("Cassiopeia A").

This search uses new data files, so be prepared for a larger initial download (>100MB).


Gravitational Wave S6 LineVeto search (extended) ending

June 04, 2013

Einstein@Home is slowly but steadily finishing the current Gravitational Wave search. The data used for this search will not be re-used for subsequent searches. This means that our "locality scheduling" won't be as effective as before to keep the download volume low. In this finishing phase you may receive tasks that require you to download 100MB or more to process. If you don't want this to happen, you may suspend the Einstein@Home project for a week or opt-out of that application in your EInstein@Home preferences (on "your account" page).
