Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Possibility to find out E.T.I. is very very low, I know, but WE MUST TRY!!
If we are alone, then Earth will became the ONLY planet that allows intelligence life (with all implications, philosophical, religious...); studing this signals we may learn more about our universe, our galaxy, and our origins.
Maybe someone in the universe is launching his signals to say: "We are here, you are not alone!". I believe this contact will take us many benefits and I think there will be no dangers! (Invasion... little green men that eat humans!!!! Klingon...)
