BOINC UNITED - Science matters!

Team BOINC United actively participates in Einstein@Home.


Einstein@Home is a volunteer distributed computing project hosted by the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute, Hannover, Germany). The project is directed by Bruce Allen. Running on the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) software platform, Einstein@Home searches through data from the LIGO detectors for evidence of continuous gravitational-wave sources, which are expected for instance from rapidly spinning non-axisymmetric neutron stars. Einstein@Home also searches radio telescope data from the Arecibo Observatory for radio pulsars. On August 12, 2010, the first discovery by Einstein@Home of a previously undetected radio pulsar J2007+2722, found in data from the Arecibo Observatory, was published in Science
