Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Yes I do believe in life on other planets in all shapes and forms and that our perspective (globally) is a closed minded one..
The more evidence and research on the components for the creation of life and where these components are being discovered in the universe... on asteroids, comets, floating freely.
I think this planet is relatively primative in the bigger picture. Our technology is relative to how we percieve the 'cave men' to be primative.
I think that there are more advanced civilisations roaming out in the universe are just watching us. Our Technology is too primative to notice them..
I am excited about discoveries being made about the universe each day.
I think space exploration should should shift it's focus to some fundamental steps..smaller steps, like a springboard..say..first a space station, then a moonbase to consolidate, then mars then another planet, then beyond. ..launchs are much easier from the moons low gravity..so why not take advantage of that fact!? Space station is a relay and an 'early research vessel. Part of the local hub. A planning point for the long haul into deeper space.
I use Seti at home beacause I want to know who and what is out there! The sooner the better!
Humans should send out beacons every 10 years which run on low power for many dozens of years at a time(the more the power can give them) emitting pulses to direct the audience to Sol our sun.
We are not alone.
It's no secret that a sceptic,
can somtimes be a pest
It's no secret' Exploration,
bites the nails of suspence.
