Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. Do you think extraterrestrial life exists?
Yes, I think there is extraterrestrial life.
If so, when and how will humans discover it?
We'll look up and they'll be there.
What are the possible benefits and dangers of such a discovery?
Of course we might be some sort of sweetner for their morning beverage, but maybe, just maybe somebody/something good will arrive first and help us not be so vein.
2. Should humans transmit a beacon for others to find?
I wouldn't start things I don't know I could finish.
If so, what information should we send?
3. Why do you run SETI@home?
To aid in the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life. And to see how well my PC's processor can digest data.
What are your views about the project?
Really good. This rocks. Such a simple idea that's so totally cool and useful.
