I wonder, could we fire up a sub-project and map the Seti@home data onto the known Exo-planets locations?

And see if we can "see" anything?

Ideally, come up with a way to distribute the data analysis so its not a Nebula only processing.

two questions theretom.
first there are tools to map the data onto the known exoplanet locations,but that list grows daily, so the map would be out of date before it could be "published".
second,not really practical, even the data for one of the " pixels" is hundreds of thousands of results. the processing involved in collating this data size, screening out rfi, etc. would take days if not weeks of continuous processing.
