Einstein@Home volunteers have discovered three new radio pulsars -- the 11'th, 12'th, and 13'th new radio pulsars found by our volunteers in Arecibo data. Six of these pulsars have been discovered in 2012: almost one per week! Congratulations to:


  • Gerald Schrader, San Diego, Califonia, USA
  • Uwe Tittmar, Kressbronn, Germany
  • Thomas Herdtle, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA
  • Zsolt Szvoboda, Szentendre, Hungary
  • Carat@voice, Ichikawa City, Japan
  • Rensk, Switzerland


Further details are available on this web page, and will be published in due course.

Bruce Allen
Director, Einstein@Home

This is excellent. Einstein@Home has been finding an increasing number of radio pulsars in recent times. Great news overall.

It says that they are finding them on BRP4 yet all the work I download on my GPU is for BRP3. How do I get BRP4 ??

My log says BRP4 version 100, yet BOINC Manager says BRP3SSE. This on my CPU.

It's the only Einstein project showing graphics on my SuSE Linux 11.1.

In fact you ARE running BRP4. The fact that you see BRP3 in the name is happening because we need to rename the "plan class" on the server side. Sorry about that, it is our fault that the name is incorrect, but rest assured that you ARE running BRP4. We haven't distributed BRP3 work for quite a long time now.
