Not much to say really. Just enjoy being able to help out.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I was first introduced to Space and space science back in 1960, when the US was just getting started with exploration. My father had bought me some sticker books on the space race and my interest was piqued.
While I never aspired to be an astronaut, I did follow science with much enthusiasm and faithfully followed everything available about space. At about the same time I had read my first science fiction book, Ray Bradury's "The Martian Chronicals".
That book from the school library had color plated illustrating aliens from Mars and other planets in our solar sytem. That was all I need to start an obsession to read and collect sci-fi books and materials about the state of space.
I have an Uncle that recovered one of the Gemni capsules abourd his ship (Capatin - Commander) and was given a patch from the ship.
When I learned about Roswell, and the Seti program, it was natural for me to belong to an historic occasion.
Do I believe in ETs. Yes. Though I have no proof that they have ever been to Earth, I just accept the odds that life exists outside of our own little ecology.
Glad to be here. I just collected my 100 credit certificate. My wife helps out on her computer so have a slight advantage over some of us.
