SETI@Home processes some of the data collected under the "Breakthrough Listening Project" umberella - a global project set up by a very wealthy Russian businessman. If you look at the name of the tasks we are processing you see some (many) start with "BLC", the data for these tasks was collected at the Green Bank Telescope, funded by the Breakthrough Listening Project.

Breakthrough Listen is now the source of most of the project's data, the work units that start with "blc".
Edit: Mostly beaten to it as well lol.
