Question to the SETI staff:

Is there a plan (after upgrading your hardware) to catch up data from other Radio Telescopes than Arecibo or is this already happening? What would be your favorite Radio Telescope candidates?

Regards
Roman

I am not a SETI staff member but I could say that a telescope in the Southern hemisphere would be greatly needed, like Parkes in Australia.

Here is some more information--->The search continues with the Allen Telescope Array
Unfortunately, I could not see/find any mentions about BOINC and/or SETI@home covering fully or partially the obtained data.
I guess more information is to be found from the SETI Institute and UCBerkeley.

Einstein@home is getting data from Parkes,Australia, in its pulsar search.

I am currently working on a workunit that says the data was recorded at Unknown.

SAH has plans to start collecting data from this telescope starting in 2011. This will be to survey the exoplanets found by the Kepler mission which NASA will release the data of in February.

Pretty exciting stuff (at least for someone who's been following the project this long!) I found out about it from an e-mail asking for donations. Given the recent server problems as well, I kicked in a few $. Hope everyone else does too. :^)
