The Albert-Einstein-Institut in Hannover is planning to host a public event on July 1st, in celebration of the anniversary of the first Einstein@Home radio-pulsar discovery.

We plan to have guests from all around the world, some enlightening talks and a nice barbecue. There will be the possibility to see the computing facilities of the AEI and probably to visit the GEO600 GW detector site.

We are still open for ideas and suggestions, in particular on whether Friday is the best day of the week to hold such an event. Feel free to express your likings and ideas in the comments to this news.

Hallo !
It´s a very nice idea!
I would suggest Fr. 2nd July, starting sometime late morning or midday would be better, to give the working people a better chance to take part and drive before somewhat longer distances.
Will it be possibel also to heare and see(?) something about the LISA project???

If I´m well up at that time, I will be pleased to come. (At moment it´s not so sure.)

Kind regards
Martin

According to my calendar July 1st is a Friday, July 2nd a Saturday.

I don't think there will be an official talk about LISA, but probably a poster or similar and certainly competent people that you could talk to.

Sounds like a terrific idea. Will you be able to post photographs for the benefit of those of us who live too far away to come?

What a great idea.

Unrelated, but I just noticed that LIGO Hanford (Washington state) has an open event on April 16th!

I don't think we'll take photos officially. However judging from the last event in 2006 I guess that a couple of participants being here will take photos, and we surely encourage them to share these on the web.

We are also investigating the possibility to use EVO to share the talks (at least audio & slides) and to chat into that event from outside.

I am following NASA videos on USTREAM which is high definition and runs both on my Linux Firefox and Seamonkey without any intervention on my part. NASA ceased using RealPlayer and my Mplayer was ill at ease with Windows Media (I could see the Media and Education streams but not the Public stream). JPL instead uses FlashPlayer, which runs perfectly on my Linux box.

Good idea and a great chance for me to learn more about Einstein@Home and LIGO 600 since I live not far away.

Hi there!

Sounds interesting. Although it's a rather long trip from Munich I'll try to make it. Some sort of schedule would be nice as soon as possible.

Does PB stand for Paderborn? Cool, I'm also from Paderborn :-). Most of the AEI staff in Hannover involved in Einstein@Home (e.g. Bernd , Oliver and scientists like Benjamin Knispel and others) are native German speakers. No problem.
