Yes!

Nice to see some scientists dealing with the subject of the aliens.

But without checking out the last postings or have it in front of me right now, there may be obtained a graphics representation of a possible signal as it is detected. For example a white "noisy" line not perfectly vertical, but slightly off this axis.

You get this graphics representation because a signal of possible extraterrestrial origin most likely would be a source outside our own solar system and therefore belonging to another star. Such a signal, if possibly being detected, therefore needs to have traveled considerable distance through space, which means it most likely have taken many years to travel such a long way.

If a signal travels a long distance, it definitely diminishes in its signal quality and the details vanishes from sight. You therefore may not be able to know or detect what eventually was in such a signal and whether it may have consisted of a series of gaussians, or possibly something else.

I did check around before asking this, but couldn't find anything, so...

Is there an ETA for when we start getting Kepler and/or Green Bank work units?

Thanks!

This work is a ways off in the future. It has not even shown up on SETI Beta yet. I would look for no earlier than this fall personally. Last I heard was they are looking into if they need to write a whole new science app to do the analysis or if the can shoe horn it into the existing MB science application. The last mutter I heard on this topic said it looked like a new science app but I have not heard the "final" or anything close to an official post on this.

Matt posted in the tech news forum that he has started more work on software for the Green Bank Telescope data. http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=67536#1213706
Shows they are doing stuff for the Kepler run.
Edit it was Matt not Jeff posting my mistake.

I just have to say even though I've only been a member for about two years and I know the project has been going on for about 12 now. What I'm gettting at is this seems like a very exiting time for Seti as we are starting to listen in the area of planets we've found. Very nice tread I've enjoyed the read allthough my understanding of most of it was limmited:)

Hey Michael? Is that avatar your Mists of Pandia toon? Very cool.

Ray.
PS,,, oops " 3 years ".

Edit: So the reason I run SETI, is to be able to know exactly when ET is found. That will be the moment SETI@home goes offline for good.

WOW! That's real paranoia!
