Hi, greets from germany!
That's me Florian from Goettingen, a nice City (not very big,not very small, (roundabout 130.000 People)with a great university (very much students here).
I'm 36 years old and I'm working at the fashion-branch in a department store named Karstadt.
My hobbies are:
Computers (playing egoshooters, making homepages and surving trough the web)
I'm a voluntary firefighter, here we have one professional firedepartment and
13 voluntary firedepartments.
My favourite music-genre is Rock, but I haven't a favourite band i'm addicted to.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I really think were not alone. In my personal backround I wrote I'm a BIG Star Trek - Fan, so it were an outrage I wouldn't believe. I often imagine of extraterrestrial lifeforms, how they live, often affected of Star Trek (its a good pattern).
In my opinion we could discover extraterrestrial life today, tomorrow, in a year... nobody knows it, but we can reduce this unknown variable. Someone said to me, when I couldn't reach a goal, just stay, it would come to me. I don't think so. They're out there and we have to gonna find them. May be we need a few steps forward and SETI is a very good one. And when we discover a lifesign it would be great. There are to much benefits and dangers to write it down here, but for my person, there are more benefits.
The fear of the people against something new is not good I think, so the SETI@home - project is a good way to awake the little discoverer in the people, to forget the fear and reach the goal...
