Submission Einstein@home set to reach 1 petaflop/sec.->

hazeii writes: Einstein@home, the distributed computing project searching for the gravitational waves predicted to exist by Albert Einstein looks set to breach the 1 Petaflop barrier around midnight UTC tonight. Put into context, if it was in the Top500 Supercomputers list, it would be in at number 24. I'm sure there are plenty of Slashdot readers who can contribute enough CPU and GPU cycles to push them well over 1,000 teraflops — and maybe even discover a pulsar in the process.
