Nebula has done its job - we have millions of "multiplets" - candidate signals - in 6 categories, ordered by 7 different score functions. Dan and Eric will, at some point, manually examine lots of these and pick 100 or so for re-observation at FAST, where we've been granted 20 hours of observing time.
To do this re-observation , we need to build a new data recorder - hardware and software. Much of this work is being done by Wei Liu, an astronomy post-doc who's visiting here for 2 years. We recently had an in-person meeting with one of the leaders of FAST to discuss the technical details of the re-observation.
I'm working on the paper about Nebula and its results. This is going slowly. I've recently started going over the paper with Bruce Allen (leader of Einstein@home), whose input and questions are very valuable.

Thank you for the Nebula updates.
Sounds interesting. Can't wait to read the 'next chapter' after it's published.

Nebula has done its job...
For the project, that must be an historic achievement for a great search through a phenomenal amount of data...
Worthy of a news item/announcement?
Well worth a few beers! (At least!!)
