...Kepler: a search for habitable planets--:Brightness/Photometry is the password

Spanish male citizen born in Germany (Nordrhein Westfalen)in 1966 (bilingual), that means that German and Spanish are the best languages for me to get in touch with you. I have a fairly good English level and I feel comfortable with. I am studying-------U.N.E.D.----- for a Tourism Bachelor degree. I am also learning some Russian, so if someone wants to practice Spanish in exchange of russian tuitions we will probably have some fun.I like swimming, women and airplanes PPL+ME (not always in this order!) and I do not smoke.
Thank you for not smoking around.

TEDIdeas worth spreading

Garik Israelian is a spectroscopist, studying the spectrum emitted by a star to figure out what it's made of and how it might behave.
It's a rare and accessible look at this discipline, which may be coming close to finding a planet friendly to life.-----Garik Israelian: What's inside a star?

I would like to say that all this interest of mine for science, SETI@home and astronomy is due to the TV program (and book which I still conserve after all these years) "Cosmos" by Mr. Carl Sagan. I have never seen such an interesting, amazing serial since then again. Wonderful in all aspects (script, performances, special effects, scenarios, soundtrack,...) but definitively the ultimate detail was the speaker, the person that created it and knew how to explain, translate ideas/concepts and bring light into the common average spectators minds. It was as well at a significant moment where the home computers (PC´s) were breaking through together with internet and the World Wide Web, which has changed the way to teach, to learn, to research.

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1.) Why do I run SETI@home? Well, very interesting project and because almost 94% of the capacity of my CPU is available most of the time.
2.) What are my views about the project? The deep dark night above us has so much to show, to discover, to understand that any help and effort is worth. Distributed computing is a great help, advantage and a smart idea that combines and organizes a lot of resources making studies/projects like this possible.
3.) Any suggestions? Searching for terrestrial intelligence first would be a great idea! :-)
