I am originally from the state of Vermont, but I have called New Hampshire home for over 20 years. After spending some time lurking in the ocean depths as a Submariner in the US Navy, Iâ€™ve gone to the other end of the spectrum and now spend much of my time exploring the peaks of White Mountains and other remote areas. I also enjoy teaching others how to safely go exploring in the mountains themselves. I guess the common thread here is that I like to explore places beyond the bounds of our civilization. Thatâ€™s where SETI comes in.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Iâ€™ve known of the existence of SETI for many years, but I thought that it was something restricted to a select group of scientists and researchers. When I learned about SETI@home from a television program, I signed up immediately. I know that odds of finding anything with this project are astronomically large (No pun intended. Wellâ€¦ maybe itâ€™s intended a little bit.). But as with all science, you will never know unless you look. Even if we never get ETâ€™s phone call, who knows what we could discover just by looking for it.
