    Einstein@Home volunteers have discovered three new radio pulsars (J1901+0510, J1858+0319, and J1857+0259) in Arecibo PALFA data! Congratulations to:


    • John A. Lorimer Jr. (USA)
    • Ugur Munir Kir, Guzel Sanatlar Saatchi & Saatchi (Turkey)
    • Philipp K√§hlitz (Germany)
    • Termit (Russia)
    • Philemon1752 (Switzerland)
    • edgen (Russia)

    Further details about these and our other newly-discovered pulsars can be found on this web page, and will be published in due course.

        It is nice and astonishing, that we found and hopefully will find so many pulsars in the radiospektrum, - I believe meanwhile more than 30 at all, - but not a single one in the x-ray spectrum by the FGRP1 application and this is near end - more than 90% done -. But it was said, that ATLAS found 9 of them out of LAT data by in principal the same algorithm. Is this a question of missing manpower to analyse further the data we compressed, or a question of the primary data, the direction the satelite was looking at for example?

        Kind regards
        Martin

          The protocol for publishing results of the Einstein@Home FGRP search is still under discussion by the Fermi collaboration. Until this has been settled, we can't talk about any such results.
