Hey there,

does somebody know, when we will get "new" data of the Breakthrough Listen Initiative ?

You should ask dr.Andrew Siemion, who testified in the House Science & Technology Committee in Washington. But he did not say a soingle word about SETI@home.

Interresting. Sounds like this project doesn't have anything to do with s@h. And if it really is, as the guy said, the best and most comprehensive project yet, then I wouldn't be surprised if s@h just gets stopped some day sooner or later.

More and more do I get the feeling lately, that nobody really believes and cares much about s@h anymore.

I still run the software and still think there is a reasonable chance ETI will be found by the project, but after nearly 15 years I'm not as optimistic as I once was. I'm convinced they are out there but I'm not so sure they want to communicate with us savage humans.

Some of us have concerns about the way that the forums are run, but nobody has any serious problems about the way that the project is being run, nor the ultimate goal of that project. We all know we are looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack, which may not even be there, but if we don't look we will never find.

For those of faint heart there are 54 other live Boinc projects that would welcome new people. I wish you well where ever you go.

Yes, exactly my thoughts. I'm sure they are out there and I'm sure that we have been discovered, but they see no reason to make contact. And I can absolutly understand that.

After all these Years...I feel much like Bob and Chris.
It is a very worthwhile project. However it could take Many years.
I wish you well on this and other projects. ;o)

We can change that, if we are willing to change ourselves.

same here...but with slight difference!

CPUs are on WCG 2 give some chance of developing sthg of value 2 humans!
GPUs are here on SETi@home...got 2 keep them busy!

Since there are no habitable planets out to 20 light years then "They" do not know that we exist by eavesdropping on our transmissions. Since we are not broadcasting high powered focused beams out into the Cosmos on a regular basis, no one could possibly know that we are here----- let alone have knowledge of all of our sins and bad behavior.

"They" won't come and visit even if they knew we were here since we would be too far away. When we find a true Earth out there then we should have this conversation once again.

Myself and a number of other people who for reasons of their own do not wish to comment publicly. You might be surprised at the number of emails and PM's I get.

Good to hear.

when r u going to stop saying those "non-sense" about no planet around 20ly within Habitable zone?

In short: when they find one. Note: I wrote HABITABLE and I mean habitable by you and me. A planet that is suitable for living that has all of the dozen or more requirements for life to form, evolve and sustain itself. Can you tell me which ones are habitable within this distance?

Yes, but I don't see that yet. The change may come, but it won't happen anytime soon.

"They" may be so far ahead of us in term of technics that they have ways to find us which we can't even imagine right now.

Well, so you and your misterious friends are happy with the way the project is run? With the lack of resources and money? I may be wrong, as I said that's just my impression, but I see Berkeley getting a lot of money and Seti always in need of money.

It takes a lot more than being in the correct temperature zone to comprise a world suitable for habitation.

You can probably think of a dozen other requirements and parameter ranges that also must be in evidence.

u can go there & list them by distance...then check the parameters & C this ones:

- Gliese 581 g

Hey,

i received an answer of Mr. Siemion, and i am allowed to post that here:


Hi Thomas,

Hopefully you’ll start getting some data from the GBT telescope soon! SETI@Home engineers are working hard on that!

Best,

Andrew

Thank you for getting back to us, Thomas.
We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Apart from pain. And maybe humiliation. And obviously death. And failure. But apart from fear, pain and humiliation, failure and the unknown and death - we have nothing to fear. Who’s with me?
