I am a 50 year old Network Performance Analyst working for Boeing near Seattle. I grew up on Merritt Island Florida where I watched all the launches from Cape Canaveral up to and including the last Apollo, number 17. I have always been fascinated with space, the possibility of other life out there, and our effort to get there and communicate with them.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
It is impossible for me to conceive how vast the universe is, it is equally impossible for me to believe that our little blue orb is so unique that it is the only place in all that vastness that has life. The universe has been around a long time, which increases the odds that there is at least one if not many other orbs that have technology equal to or more advanced than our own. SETI is our best bet at the moment for finding that other life and I have always been excited about the chance to be part of the search. I just hope when we do make first contact, that they are more like Vulcan?s than Klingon's.
