Are we still looking for ET ?
Looking at the server’s acquisition and splitter tapes status at http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sstatus.html it looks like we are all crunching data that have been analysed many many times, I guess…
Is S@H still a project searching for ET signal or is it just for numbers cruncher’s competition ?
Isn’t it a waste of energy to “ stupidly ” crunch units for nothing else than numbers ? Should we use our processing power to some more “ useful ” humanitarians Projects like fighting AIDS ? At least until we can listen on other part of the sky, different frequencies, etc.
There are ten times more post in the number crunching section than SETI@home science. I was even planning to built myself a “ supercomputer ” dedicated to SETI, but what’s the point, really.
Or perhaps I am wrong.
