You can help.

Yes, you and your little computer can play a part, albeit minuscule, in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI).

From the website:

    SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. You participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data.”

What’s not to like?

The project started on May 18, 1999, and is still looking for the first indication that there’s somebody – or something – out there.

Could happen today.

Ya never know.

    Been signed up and using this for a little while now. I think this is an excellent use of all that computer downtime ;)

    Folding@Home is another one, using distributed computing to run protein-folding simulations.
