Hailing from Alberta, Canada, I've been on the SETI program since 2004 and the ROSETTA Project on March 19, 2013.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY MOTHER, LAURA MAY IRVINE
I joined the ROSETTA project when my mom was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer (Glioblastioma Multiforme) in August 2012. This kind of cancer begins at the worst level possible (stage 4) and is the most agressive type. All CANCER cells begin to form when there is a change or damage in a genetic chain. ROSETTA does GENETIC research on various major diseases.
I now have 3 computers and all of them are dedicated to 'crunch the numbers' for the above two projects. Though on a very limited income, I only wish I could afford more computers or do more upgrades to crunch even more numbers. There are so many worthy projects out there!
Mom passed away May 17, 2014 as another victim of this hideous disease. My participation in the Rosetta Project continues.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
SETTI PROJECT: Is there life out there? Will extra terristial life be found? Oh so many theories abound, don't they! Join the Seti@home group.
ROSETTA PROJECT: Is genetic research going to find a cure for Cancer and many other diseases? Yes !!!! The sooner the better as so many people are dying from this wretched disease.
Join any group, they need our extra computer power in order to learn about so many things that are beneficial to mankind.
Thank you to U of C Berkeley's SETI staff for making this all possible.
