Yes, it’s great that we can participate in something grandiose. But I want to know what improvements the project will have next? Will everything be limited to screensavers or will there be more advanced versions for FFT calculations and signal analysis? Will the project participants be able to view the results of their work?

Good afternone!
I think that every participant in the SETI project should be able to have access to the data that is being processed by the project. Participants must see the immediate results of the calculations. The most interesting results on signal processing should be published in the form of articles with detailed explanations. In addition, participants on whose computers the most notable events from the received signal were calculated should be awarded with diplomas for their active participation and achievement in the distributed computing of the project. All this will make the SETI project even more popular and will attract a large number of people to participate in it.

Without a doubt, the project contributes to other sciences. Currently, the project focuses on narrow-band signals, but if we receive signals that we receive at a level lower than the radio noise level, then we can only detect them by statistical methods. This is a much more complicated computational experiment. It is possible that we are recording signals from other civilizations right now, but we cannot detect them due to insufficient evaluation and signal accumulation time.

If it is possible to register the repeating signals, similar to those of the earth, then it is easy to check where they come from. For this there are radio astronomy methods. Therefore, they will not be ignored. So far, no such signals have been registered from space. With regard to non-repeating signals, I can say the following: no matter how high a level of development a extraterrestrial civilization reaches, its signals will sooner or later begin to repeat. This will happen because the level of development is still limited. To generate non-recurring, always unique signals, the level of development of a civilization must tend to infinity.

In any case, any civilization goes through certain stages of its development, step by step. In the period of mastering radio programs, signals are emitted into space, which, theoretically, can be fixed. Industrial production is impossible without the use of technologies, in the process of which many repetitive signals are emitted. If extraterrestrial advanced civilizations exist, they must produce a lot of artificial noise.

It's clear! But why send non-recurring signals? Any civilization that has reached a high level of development is able to understand that decoding non-repeating signals is very difficult. On the contrary, they had to draw conclusions that constantly recurring signals would provide an understanding that they were created and sent into space by intelligent beings. Of course, the signals must have information in themselves, otherwise it can be, for example, a pulsar. If a civilization wants to be discovered, why does it need to send signals that no one can recognize?

What is the accounting of this time? Drake's formula is needed to calculate the number of civilizations in the galaxy. How does the time of propagation of light affect the response?
