|The Search for
SETI has been using the assistance of ordinary people at home to assist with the search. Already 1.3million PC's are involved in the calculations using information from space. Volunteers download SETI@home from the University of California Berkeley from the project web site http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu .
The programme acts as a screensaver whilst it is working doing the calculations when your Pc is not in use but switched on. The data comes from the Arecibo dish in Puerto Rico capturing radar signals. Tiny bits of the data are sent to volunteers Pc's via the Internet. the process can take 12 to 80 hours for each piece of data and when each bit is completed it is sent back and another piece is sent. Anyone whose bit of data finds life will share the accreditation. If you want to take part it is straightforward and at least you get a high tech looking screensaver to show you the programme is working away.
This is the biggest use of global computing power ever undertaken so have a look.
