New distributed computing project to search for gravity waves

Slashdot | BOINC Project to Search for Gravitational Waves
Buzz Skyline writes “Einstein@Home is a new, BOINC-based distributed computing project that will analyze data from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (LIGO). The goal is to perform a whole-sky, gravitational wave survey of pulsars. Beta-test versions of the Einstein@Home screen saver should be available by the end of the summer, and final release is planned for early 2005.”
