I was born in California in 1966 and raised in New England. My mother had sighted an unidentified flying object that she was certain was not from our earth when she was a teenager and she speaks of it to this day.
I've always had an interest in the what if's of life, and finding out if life exists elsewhere, is one of those what ifs. I look forward to being a part of this journey with the SETI community and hopefully sometime in my lifetime, this one what if, will have an answer.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1) I am running SETI at home to be part of the world-wide supercomputer that is searching for signals of intelligent life.
2) My views about the project are that I think it is highly possible and I'm thankful that there is an organization allowing the public to participate.
3) My only suggestion would be to expand ways to listen in as many directions as possible. If it's possible to transmit info on waves other than radio waves, then listen to everything and anything possible.
