I am a U.S. citizen, currently living in Australia. I have a rare opportunity to live in this beautiful country for two years, and plan to see all of it that I can while I'm here.
I love home renovation and decoration, as well as attending physics lectures, learning what I can about astrophysics, and following Stephen Hawkings' work.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe that there is surely some sort of extraterrestrial life out there, but perhaps nothing like what we may be able to conceptualize at this point. While our chances of being at the right level of technology at the right time to intersect a transmission from other life may be extremely slim, I think giving it our best try is definitely a worthwhile effort.
Working for SETI would be my "dream job" if it were practical for me!
