Website Detail Page

designer: Bruce Allen
published by the American Physical Society
This is a website that offers a program for users to download that uses private computers to process data from the gravitational wave detectors LIGO and GEO 600.  The program acts as a screen saver only processing data while the computer is not being used allowing the average person to contribute their computer to processing the massive amount of data these observatories receive.  The website also includes a multitude of information on gravitational waves and LIGO.
