Graduated a couple of years ago, with a BSc (Hons) in Construction, as a full-time, mature student, at Southampton Solent University. That's where I caught the 'learning bug' and have since undertaken Open University courses in sustainable technologies, environmental science and a short course about 'How the Universe works' which included cosmology, quantumn theory, and astro-physics. Very interesting stuff that certainly taxes the brain. I am currently looking for another subject to study, possibly something science or computer related.......... more to follow, when I can be bothered
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I've always had a fascination with just how much is actually 'out there' and how little we know about it. I think this is where my interest in SETI@home started and why I started crunching and why I continue to do so, although less regular than before. Now, having a better understanding of exactly how many planets/suns/galaxies there could be out there, I find it hard to believe we are alone. Whether any kind of contact/signal will ever be received, I'm doubtful, but still hopeful. After all, if we don't try, we'll never know will we?
