|Born in 1950 and retired from US military service. I'm currently working for a major sports arena in Phoenix, AZ. Amateur radio operation is a hobby. I'm running the SETI@home program after being introduced to it by another ham.|
|Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home|
|I'm fairly sure that life is out there somewhere else in the universe. I wonder how we would be studied if ET finds us instead. I believe it wouldn't hurt to transmit from a beacon. I suggest using the "dark" side of the moon to place any beacon. I run the SETI@home program simply as a matter of helping for the search as I prefer to believe we will find some evidence of intelligent life eventually. It also uses the computer's unused cpu cycles in a wonderfully cooperative program. The concept of distributed computing is an excellent idea regardless of the subject: weather prediction, chemical reactions, proof of gravity waves, etc. I participate in both the Einstein and LHC projects also. Both of those delve into basic science which lays the foundations for future technologies.|
Now excited to see the SETI program expanding to looking for coherent light signals in addition to radio frequencies.
