Einstein@Home has discovered a fourth new radio pulsar, J1952+25, in data from the Arecibo Observatory. This is the second Einstein@Home discovery in Arecibo data taken with the new "Mock" back-end spectrometer. 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! We have found 14 radio pulsars so far, and I am also optimistic about our prospects for discovering new gamma-ray pulsars and continuous gravitational-wave sources.

Director, Einstein@Home
