I just read that Einstein@home project is going to be using radio telescope data from Arecibo to find pulsars. They will be testing "a new pulsar search," says Bruce Allen.

My questions are:
Can Astropulse detect pulsars? If so, isn't this overlapping science? If so, can either project benefit?

Edit:
Found a tentative answer to this on the Einstein forums. If anyone is interested, please follow the forum link above and scroll down. Also, here's a paper on the discussion.

(Last slide: ) The Pulsar Timing Array looks rather interesting for gravitational wave detection!

Keep searchin',
