The SETI@home program is a special kind of screensaver. Like other screensavers it starts up when you leave your computer unattended, and it shuts
down as soon as you return to work. What it does in the interim is unique. While you are getting coffee, or having lunch or sleeping, your computer
will be helping the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence by analyzing data specially captured by the world's largest radio telescope.
