plots of all the new discoveries below!</p>
<p>Currently we are working very hard to study all of the results from FGRP4, and we are hoping to
present these in a series of papers in the near future. <br>
As always, we are extremely grateful to all of our volunteers, especially those whose computers
present these in a series of papers in the near future. </p>

<p>Timeline of <i>Fermi</i>-LAT Blind-Search Pulsar Discoveries</p>
<img style="width: 500px;" alt="Timeline" src="img/psrs_vs_time.png">

<p>The above plot illustrates the number of gamma-ray pulsars discovered in blind searches using NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope as a function of time (when the discoveries were published). Since the launch of the Fermi satellite in 2008, it has continuously scanning the entire sky and thus is providing an ever increasing data set. In principle, having more data available allows us to do more sensitive pulsar searches. However, at the time, the computational cost increases also rapidly with the longer data time spans. Thus, as the graphics shows, over the last few years the only new such discoveries were made with Einstein@Home, owing to the massive collective computing power provided by the Einstein@Home volunteers.</p>
