SummaryBetween the construction start of GEO600 in 1995 and the preliminary end of construction in 2003 there have been several years of exciting development of a new instrument to explore the universe. With the data taken during the first scientific data run (S1) it is now possible to set upper limits on the strength of gravitational waves from rotating neutron stars for the first time.
