Pirates@Home is a test of BOINC, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. One goal of the project is to help develop a screensaver for Einstein@Home. At present Pirates@Home is not doing any real scientific computation. We are just having fun with BOINC. You can read more about Pirates@Home Research Goals here.

The goal of Einstein@Home is to use distributed public computing to provide the computational power needed to search for gravitational radiation using data from the LIGO and GEO 600 gravity wave detectors. You can participate in Einstein@Home here.
