I am from The Midwest. It's great for star gazing because of all of the open spaces we have here. I have been interested in astronomy and "little green men" since I was a little girl. I feel so small when I look up to the stars. I tell myself, "We just can't be the only ones out here!" I became familiar with SETI through the movie, Contact. I thought that was pretty amazing to find another world through the use of radio signals. I am open to the possibilites of the unknown. I am reading a book by Arthur C. Clarke right now about this company mass-producing wormholes to view time, current and past. Nothing has to be science fiction anymore! I study the stars as a hobby. I actually went to college to work wih children and that's what I am happy doing right now.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
SETI@home is great. It allows you to be apart of a huge and growing scientific field.
