Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
The probability speaks for extraterrestrial life. And i'm sure it exists.
Things i'm not sure about:
Will we discover it ?
How widespread is intelligent life ?
Does anyone out there runs SETI too ? ;-)
To be able to participate in such a project is not only fun, participation is another brick in the building of SETI.
