Personal background
My parents always encouraged me to learn and broaden my horizon. There is no broader horizon than the infinite universe I think. The idea that our tiny planet is the only one inhabited with "intelligent" lifeforms seems very unlikely to me. And even the smallest chance to prove that we are not alone should be supported. I am a mother of three and a grandmother of five , and my son has recently joined SETI@Home because he saw it on my computer. I live on an island in the north of The Netherlands. A beautiful area of wetlands, with little light pollution so we can clearly see the stars if the clouds stay away.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI because I like the idea of worldwide co-operation to achieve something.
I admire the people who started and maintained the project. It seems a huge task since more and more people join in.
