I am from Germany and love my wife and my childrens. Every day I try to tell myself: Its better to be happy to early then not at all.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
My opinion is that we are not alone in our galaxy - because the room is to large to be the only species there. But so importent it is to search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence i think we have to search on our own earth for still unexplainable phenomenons.
