Molecular Biology is a fascinating field. Our work is greatly aided by comparing similar biological mechanisms from different species and seeing how they have evolved over millions of years. In essence, in one way or the other, we study the basic mechanisms of the chemical reaction we call life. So why not wonder how it might have been done differently elsewhere? Of course, this question is not limited to biologists, but can be extended to nearly any who are seeking answers.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. I do SETI because I believe in its mission and its easy to help out.
2. Great idea, but I'd like easier access to what has been found and how the founders interpret it.
3. Some, but not for you guys.
