One Dozen and One Neutron Stars – Einstein@Home discovers 13 new gamma-ray pulsars

A new paper, titled “The Einstein@Home gamma-ray pulsar survey I: search methods, sensitivity and discovery of new young gamma-ray pulsars”, that presents the discovery of 13 new gamma-ray pulsars by Einstein@Home in Fermi-LAT data has now been published in The Astrophysical Journal. You can read the full publication for free on the arXiv (click on “PDF” at the top right). A press release summarising the publication is available on the homepage of the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. We are extremely grateful to all volunteers who have donated […]

UWM network maintenance

The UWM network operations need to shutdown our Internet connection for routine maintenance. As a result, the Einstein@Home project will be down on Monday January 2, 2016; starting at 1000 UTC. That is 1100 CET for most Europeans and 0500 EST for East-coast North America. Network downtime will be less than 20 minutes.

Einstein@Home discovers a record-breaking pulsar-neutron star system

Recently, a new paper about an exciting discovery from our radio pulsar search has been published. In “Einstein@Home Discovery of a Double Neutron Star Binary in the PALFA Survey” we report together with an international team the most massive double neutron star system ever observed. Read more about this topic in the publication itself, or in our accompanying press release. Cheers,Benjamin

Website downtime, 2016-10-31 and 2016-11-01

On Monday 2016-10-31 and Tuesday 2016-11-01, at 1400 UTC (both days) we will be turning off the einstein Web server front-end for some hardware maintenance. The time corresponds to 1500 CST and 1000 EDT. This downtime is only for the Web site. The E@H project will continue to run normally. Monday, there will be a minor networking change. The downtime window should only be 5 to 10 minutes. Tuesday, there will be a some hardware support work. This will take longer, 30-45 minutes.

Welcome to our all new website and our new official logo! We hope you like the new design and structural changes. Take your time touring the site and review our motivation for the changes. If you want to provide feedback you can of course do so in the two topmost featured topics in the problems and bug reports forum section. We’ll try to keep a close eye on the site over the weekend but most bug fixes will probably have to wait until Monday. Thanks and have fun! […]

Einstein@Home website relaunch

Einstein@Home website relaunch Our website is temporarily shut down while we’re working on its full relaunch. While no web services or account creation will be availble during this time, we will try to keep the project itself running. The data migration might take a few days but we expect to be fully back online later this week. Thanks for your patience!
