I am 53 years old. Retired from the US Air force. Currently I am a JROTC instructor at a city High School. I live in Connecticut and work in Massachusetts. My wife and I have 4 children (all on their own) and we like to ride our motorcycle and camp.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe that there is life all around us if we can learn to discover it. Danger exists everyday for us, yet we are still here. I believe that we will discover some sort of life before December of 2012. I think that sometimes the thing you are looking for is right in front of you, but you don't see it.
I think that we are already transmitting enough information for anyone who is looking for us. If they choose to make contact is a different story.
I run SETI@home because I feel that who ever is not part of the problem is part of the solution.
I think that this project is a teaching tool to others.
