Join the hundreds of thousands of at-home computer
users in more than 200 nations who are helping the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial
Intelligence) group at the University of California at Berkeley.
They're using the world's largest radio telescope and
a super computer at Arecibo, Puerto Rico to scan portions of the universe and analyze
radio signals for signs of intelligent communications. The problem is, there's too much to
That's where ordinary home or office computers come in: working in parallel,
they're the equivalent of a gigantic super computer. U.C. Berkeley sends us a batch of raw
data, and our computers analyze it, acting as a screen-saver, off-line, when we don't need
to use the computer. Loading the material to analyze is easy, and brief. The program is
free and easy as well. It works great.
To learn more, and to sign
You'll look forward to rejoining your computer
to see what it's found...
maybe you'll be the one to make
the ultimate connection with E.T.
