Consider an Asymmetrical Pulsar…

On June 22, APS participated in an event on Capitol Hill sponsored by the Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF).

Here Jessica Clark, APS Public Outreach Coordinator, explains the Einstein@home project to David Goldston, Chief of Staff of the House Science Committee.

The Einstein@home distributed computing project, to be launched during the World Year of Physics in 2005, will enable owners of personal computers to donate CPU time to the search for gravitational waves, using data gathered by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO). LIGO, consisting of two observatories located in Livingston, Louisiana and Hanford, Washington, is funded by the National Science Foundation.
