|I am a 60+ Senior Service Desk Specialist living in the Eastern Melbourne (Australia) Suburb of Nunawading. I work in IT in the Health Industry at a reasonably local Public Hospital group, I am married with 4 adult children and 7 Grandchildren.|
Working in IT I have access to quite a number of PC's to run SETI. However, my employer has decided that it is inappropriate to use all these wasted clock cycles for public good.
I enjoy watching Motor Sport, especially Formula One, and mucking about on the internet.
I umpire Baseball at Blackburn during the Australian Summer.
Currently seeking a new work challenge.
|Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home|
|I run Seti@home because I feel that it would be too conceited of mankind to consider themselves the only possible intelligent life form around (Look at Dolphins, Elephants etc. They are intelligent but we don't have the ability to communicate with them).|
If we find intelligent life on an extra-solar planet, will we be able to communicate with them? How long will it take us to develop a common language?
I believe that the Boinc and SETI@Home projects give us the best chance to gain knowledge of other intelligent life and They give us all an opportunity to participate in projects which will be of benefit to all mankind.
Is it possible that there are other beings out there on other planets doing similar projects to SETI? Are they looking for us? Should we be sending a coherent signal out into space? If so, In which direction??
Can we contact them using an Instant Messaging tool? What about SMS or MMS? Am I being silly?
