Results takes years and years. We're only doing the first part of it by crunching the work units.
After that, what we have crunched on our computers has to be analyzed, and bearing in mind that there's already a several years long backlog,
don't expect any "results" from our "Tabbys Star" crunching any time soon.

My guess is 5-10 years at least, before we can see any "results" at all.
Real science is a slow process.

Any news on the results yet?

There has been a "re-observations" run for the most promising/plausible candidates a few years ago.

There is now another push to score the present results with the Nebula work that Dr Anderson is working through at present.


Don't hold your breath. We're in this search for the very long run.

Meanwhile, we've mapped the hydrogen and structure of our Milkyway Galaxy, and discovered a few other bits and pieces along the way...

I'll let others direct to the links.


Keep searchin',
