Hi, my name is Wendy. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I have been interested in space for as long as I can remember. I am currently 56 years and old and am a cancer survivor. Unfortunately, the radiation treatments they gave me for it has caused nerve damage in my right arm and hand. For this reason I am unable to work, but I would have loved to go into space. Somehow I think it is highly unlikely because of this infliction. I do however, hold a degree in electronics technician from DeVry. Before that I had worked in donut shops in various locations. I love watching science fiction movies and programs and believe that the technology they use will someday become science facts. I spend my days either knitting and watching TV, or playing hidden object games on my laptop. I look forward to helping in the search for possible life sustaining planets.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I have always believed in UFOs and alien life forms. I believe that it would be awfully arrogant of us to think we are the only intelligent life in the entire universe. Some of my favorite shows are documentaries about aliens and the universe, (Ancient Aliens, Hangar 1, and Strip the Cosmos, to name a few). Until I watched a special called "Aliens: The Definitive Guide", I was not aware of this program. Had I known sooner, I may have joined before now. I am hoping to be one of many who will find a signal from space. I do have one suggestion for those looking at planets in their "Goldie Locks zone", we should check for a moon(s) close to its planet. We all know that it is our moon that controls the tides in our oceans and all waterways, (maybe even part of our weather patterns). So chances are moons may also be the key to life as well.
