What is SETI?|
The SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) was a program started in the 1960's to search signals from space for
intelligence. For many years SETI collected signals using the VLA antenna array in New Mexico and was funded partially by NASA.
In 1993 all funding was canceled. Signals are now recorded by the Aricebo Telescope in Puerto Rico.
After loosing funding, many others invested into the program, and volunteered resources. However the computing power needed to
search all the collected data was far more than what could be afforded. This is where SETI@HOME comes in.
What is SETI@HOME?
SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers to Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI).
You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data and then reports the results back to
What is the UFO Crash Site Team?
The UFO Crash Site Team is just people competing as a team against others to see who can analyze signals the quickest.
Each computer, user, and team is ranked. Credits are awarded by the length of time it takes to complete a unit, the speed of your machine, and other criteria.
Here are the steps to join. If your already running Boinc, just join our team.
