Congratulations and thank you to all Einstein@Home volunteers: sometime shortly after January 1st 2013, Einstein@Home passed the 1 Petaflop computing-power barrier. To put this in context, according to the current (November 2012) Top-500 computing list, there are only 23 computers on our planet that deliver this much computing power.

(One Petaflop is 1,000,000,000,000,000 floating point operations per second.)

Congratulations and thank you again, and keep on crunching!

Bruce Allen
Director, Einstein@Home

Congratulations to Einstein@home team, and is a very good starting of the new year 2013 and the best gift of magi here in Spain :))

Greetings from Hammrammstein.

Fantastic, great job everyone.

Hey, let's go for 2 petaflops!

Might take awhile, but with increasing processing power, it's conceivable to eventually get there.

Yes, that's right. I was so busy celebrating the New Year that I didn't realize it. In fact I found out from my mother when I talked with her on the phone yesterday!
