I was reading this article earlier and just wondered whether us SETI@Home BOINC crunchers work through any of their data? If not, how is their data trawled through?

All the work units that we do whose file names start with "blc" are from the Breakthrough Listen project. ;-)

Cheers.

Breakthrough Listen is producing so much data that we're only able to process about one percent of it, so the more participants and computers we can get contributing the better!
(The other 99% is analyzed onsite, but ours is about ten times more sensitive.)
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
