Einstein@Home discovers a new radio pulsar in Arecibo data
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

I am delighted to announce that Einstein@Home has discovered a third new radio pulsar in data from the Arecibo Observatory. This is the first Einstein@Home discovery in Arecibo data taken with the new "Mock" back-end spectrometer. The pulsar is unusually interesting, as is a short-period (millisecond) pulsar in a binary system. Further details about the newly-discovered pulsar can be found on this web page, and will be published in due course.

Congratulations to our volunteers, and thank you for contributing to Einstein@Home!
