Since some of you on this forum may not look at some of the other forums, I'm relaying some SETI @ home info received earlier.
So, take a break from moon/mars structures for a second, and run SETI @ home; you may be the one to discover
Some of you may noty be aware that ATS has a SETI Team
, but sadly there are
only 33 active members!
The SETI@home team has achieved much progress in the past year. We have successfully started the next phase of SETI@home by distributing data
recorded with the new seven beam data recorder. This data is being analyzed with a new "Multi-beam" version of SETI@home, which was released in
July. With the new data recorder, we are looking at seven places in the sky simultaneously while recording fourteen times as much data as before.
This means we need more volunteers like you to help us process this data. So please, tell a friend about SETI@home.
But there is still far more to be done. Although we are pleased with the success of last winter's funding drive, and grateful for the generosity of
our donors, we are still operating with minimal funds. These budget constraints have forced us down to less than 3 full time employees. With more
funds we hope to hire an additional person to maintain the servers and web site. This would free our existing employees to work on a method of
sifting through the results returned by your computers in order to identify candidates more rapidly so we can re-observe them. This rapid response
validation system would also give you the ability to see the results your computers have returned in more detail.
To keep SETI@home operating for the next year, and to provide these new capabilities, we will need to raise approximately $476,000. Currently
SETI@home is entirely funded by donations from people like you.
