Update after 1 week of launch

Hi everyone,

It has been one week since our full public launch, and we couldn’t be happier with the awesome participation! We’ve had over 200,000 classifications already, and thanks to everyone’s work on classifications and on talk, we are starting to see new categories emerge through talk, which will be added to the workflows in the near future. One of this is being hashtagged as #1400ripple:

Also, it looks like both LIGO site will (finally!) be coming back online and doing science over the next month – so we’ll have much more data and new glitches to classify. Thanks for everyone’s continued support!

I am a graduate student studying Physics and Astronomy at Northwestern University. I am part of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and work with Dr. Vicky Kalogera studying gravitational wave astrophysics. In particular, I'm interested in binary evolution and using gravitational wave detections to determine the environments in which compact binary mergers occur. I received my B.S. from the University of Illinois in Astronomy, Physics, and Music. Outside of school I enjoy teaching science at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium and Kids Science Labs, playing music around the Windy City, and looking up.
