Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I became very interested in SETI after seeing Contact. I know, I know, it sounds so something. However, seeing the movie, got me to read the book and revisit an old friend as it wore. I was introduced to Sagan as a Jr. High student watching old NOVA episodes in science class. I thought he was boring as any self-respecting 8th grader would probably view having to watch PBS... But I disgress.
Reading and seeing Contact, I was reminded of a quote I can not totally remember but was to the effect that to think we are alone in this universe is arrogance. To think that this is the only planet to support intelligent life is to think that we are a scientific anomoly. If there is a single planet that is just now starting to seek out other planets and study them, could it not be possible that other planets are out there not looking for us yet?
I started with SETI@Home to help out those trying to analyze the data out there, and perhaps be one of those that made a contribution to science.
