An article by Ben Lindbergh in The Ringer discusses the history and status of SETI@home as it turns 20.

Greetings,

I just finished reading the whole article. I have to tell you, I still have tears in my eyes! :)

I got to the point where the video of Dr. Arroway is and stopped to watch it. While watching I'm thinking of SETI@home. I got to the part where she is running through the complex and yelling on the radio. She hit the stairs and the tears started coming. I then finished reading the article with bouts of tears.

Those were tears of joy; of being a part of something much bigger than me. I joined on May 23rd, 1999. I am so proud to be a part of this endeavor! :)

Congratulations to Mr. Kevvy for his being in that article. He has helped me now and again with problems that crop up here and there.

Have a great day! :)

Interesting Article. Curious as to why a School who supports science would not participate in such a project. To bad there isn't a strong PR campaign to support Seti and the other beneficial projects currently being offered.
