Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence

If you're NOT a SETI Contributor, Become One by going to their   Seti@Home website.

Seti is a program that searches space for possible radio signals emanating from other worlds.

.

Man's search for intelligent life beyond our own planet, and the basic question "Are We Alone", is a scientific quest now operated by the University of California - Berkeley, and is funded by numerous private groups and organizations. The Seti program was originally funded by the Federal Government, but due to fiscal budgetary constraints was dropped some years ago, and is now privately funded.

.

Interest in finding E.T. is a subject that, until some years ago, was limited to the scientific community and governmental agencies. The late Dr. Carl Sagan was perhaps the most visible proponent of maintaining this ongoing search through his "Cosmos" television series, as well as his best selling novel "Contact", which was also a Motion Picture staring Jodie Foster.

"I'll tell you one thing about the universe, though. The universe is a pretty big place. It's bigger than anything anyone has ever dreamed of before. So if it's just us...seems like an awful waste of space. Right?"  [ Jodie Foster as Ellie Arroway: Said to a group of children at the end of the film. ]

.

My interest in "space" goes back to my youth, and was sparked by the classic 1950's science fiction movie "Forbidden Planet". Although science was not one of my strong areas in school, I have maintained an ongoing interest in our nation's overall space program and related projects ever since that time.

.

In 1999, I read an article in our local newspaper about the fact that the Seti program was enlisting home computer users to help analyze the massive amounts of accumulate radio telescope data. The article went on to describe the "Seti@home" user software - screensaver program. Needless to say, I felt this would be an excellent opportunity to help contribute to a worthwhile project,  so, I became a Seti contributor.
