We might want to give more Luv to Einstein and shrub highly sensitive raw data... However, doesn't look like these new Ligo WUs have made it to Boinc yet, I see only Pulsar searches. KWSN just passed 1 Billion points!

Dear Einstein@Home volunteers,

The five-year upgrade of the LIGO detectors has been completed and we
are a large step closer to the first direct detection of gravitational
waves, which will mark the beginning of a new era of astronomy. As we
are writing this newsletter, Advanced LIGO is beginning its first
observation run “O1” after an extensive comissioning phase and a
series of “engineering runs”. The Einstein@Home team is truly excited
and is looking forward to the most sensitive gravitational-wave data
ever recorded.

In the first week of September more than 200 gravitational-wave
scientists from the LIGO Virgo Scientific Collaboration gathered in
Budapest for their fall meeting. Many Einstein@Home team members were
present and reported on their ongoing gravitational-wave
searches. During the meeting, the seventh issue of the LIGO Magazine
was published, featuring a four page article on Einstein@Home. You can
read it for free at (link below)...
