This forum is a blog for Nebula, the SETI@home back end. I'll occasionally post here about development and results.

Guys, where is my system most needed... BOINC or Nebula? I have a fairly nice gaming system that I have dedicated to SETI. ??

Thanks,

TJ

BOINC and Nebula are not the same.
Nebual is a back end process that does not use the BOINC infrastructure that SETI@Home uses. Nebual takes the data we have processed and performs the correlation that is required to identify potential homes for ET.

How do I get involved with data processing for Nebula?
Thanks

If you read the very first post in this thread from David Anderson, and his linked explanation, you will find that "Nebula" is not suitable for distributed computing, rather is a step beyond the work SETI@Home is doing. SETI@Home screens out the majority of the "dross" signals, leaving the most likely signals, which Nebula does a lot more detailed analysis on than can be achieved in the pass we are doing.

Also worth mentioning that Seti previously had plans for a Nitpicker machine to perform the back end function. Initially it would send out the best results received for further Analysis. Then a change of plan meant they wanted to do it in real time. They tried it fleetingly but realised that they would need a more powerful machine costing $40K. There was no money available. To plug the gap DA has proposed Nebula which will use the Einstein Atlas cluster at Hanover for the work.
