SETI at Home
SETI@home is a scientific experience dealing with Radio astronomy. This project works with the unused power of million of home computers with the aim to Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (aka SETI). You can contribute to this project with your own Mac (or your server or a Pc). You set up an automatic software which will automatically downloads and processes data collected from the huge radio space telescope in Arecibo. There is a small but exciting probability to detect a distant murmure from a different civilization outside of our solar system.
More than 3 millions of contributors from 226 countries, make the equivalent of half millions years calculations and return 300 millions of results. Do you wanna contribute to that collective and shared work ?
You can get more informations, subscribe and download the software on the SETI official home page.
If SETI detects music from the space, it will be a good way to recruit new and different Active members to your favourite site?
