- Looking for ET (SETI@home )
SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data. We will discuss how you can get involved in this project, how to install and run the BOINC software used by SETI@home. Also, we will talk about other similar projects that you can get involved in like DNA sequencing, Weather forecasting, and much more. Bring your laptop!
