Gamma Ray Pulsar Discovery and The Planetary Society

Hans Peter Tobler

February 21, 2014

Dear fellow members: As a member of the Planetary Society team number crunching for Einstein@home I can proudly announce that my computer helped to discover the previously unknown 4.80 Hz Gamma Ray Pulsar J1932+1916 in data collected by the Fermi Gamma-Ray space telescope. The data were collected on 19 September 2011.

Given this example I would like to urge other Planetary Society members to join in the efforts of Einstein@home and SETI@home. There is significant chance that your efforts may lead to real scientific discovery!
