No it is not a dumb question. Seti@home beta is currently testing a new client for SETI@home that is more sensitive called SETI@home enhanced.

Astropulse was an old project that took data from the existing SETI@home tapes and re-examined them for radio pulses that lasted only microseconds. This could indicate a pulsar or maybe a signal from an intelligent source deliberately being sent out. As far I understand it work on a new Astropulse will start once the SETI enhanced client is in general release. The Southern hemisphere is another SETI project that is due to join BOINC in the future. SETI@home beta is a test environment for these three future projects. You can join the beta project over at

Hi

Astropulse an old project???

Not that true.

I was crunching astropulse in 2003 what is a bit younger than seti since 1999.
It was the first boinc application when i remember correctly.
I´m boincing since march 2003 and did a lot of astropulse units.
Astropulse is searching for black holes and pulsars.
This application will be continued in beta test after seti enhanced is finnished and before southern hemisphere search starts.

Sorry to crash the thread with what could be a stupid question but if Astropulse is searching for pulsars wouldn't that make Einstein@home sortta redundant? Or would it work with the enhanced SETI@home to help distinguish between candidate signals from background noise?

Einstein@home is looking for gravitational waves, while astropulse will be looking for radio waves.

The two projects are looking at different aspects, and endorse each other.
