Einstein@Home in latest LIGO Magazine
The new LIGO magazine is out and it features an article about Einstein@Home. You read a pdf file of the article here. The article was written by M. Alessandra Papa, Benjamin Knispel, Holger Pletsch and Bernd Machenschalk from the Einstein@Home team, looking at the project's history, infrastructure, and different searches.

Do have a look at this and the earlier issues of the LIGO Magazine to learn more about the LIGO gravitational detectors.

Hidden in plain sight: E@H discovery of an elusive gamma-ray pulsar
We are glad to announce the discovery of a new gamma-ray pulsar hidden in plain sight in data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.
The object has been discovered by the computers of Connor Barry of Lafayette, Colorado, USA and Rich Johnson of Hayward, California, USA -- Congratulations!
The scientific paper has been published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters. An open-access preprint version is found here.

To learn more about it, check out the press release (a German version is also available here).

Thanks to everyone participating in Einstein@Home and enabling such exciting discoveries!

First Einstein@Home Newsletter
Dear Einstein@Home volunteers,

February 19th was the tenth anniversary of the Einstein@Home launch. A lot has happened in the past decade, and thanks to your support, the project has become one of the largest distributed volunteer projects on the planet. Thank you for helping Einstein@Home to do great science!

We would like to begin Einstein@Home's anniversary year by launching the Einstein@Home newsletter. Four times a year, project scientists and developers will tell you about our exciting science. In each newsletter, a handful of Einstein@Home team members will report on what they have been up to, and what their plans for the future are.

Our first newsletter features updates from Bernd Machenschalk on how the project operates, and from M. Alessandra Papa on Einstein@Home's latest and most sensitive gravitational-wave hunt. Benjamin Knispel brings you up to speed with the search for binary radio pulsars and Holger Pletsch has news on the Fermi gamma-ray pulsar analysis. Enjoy!

Website performance problems resolved!
Hi everyone,

We resolved the performance issues of our main website. As it seems the performance now even surpasses that of the original setup - nice. There might be a few quirks left in terms of missing resources or broken (internal) links. Please let us know when you find any.

Thanks for your patience!
