SETI@home: An experiment in Internet-scale distributed computing
presented by: Dr. David P. Anderson, Director
SETI@home digitally records radio waves from space at the
Arecibo radio observatory, then distributes the data, over
the Internet, to 3.5 million volunteers whose computers analyze
the data, listening for evidence of extraterrestrial life.
In two years the project has analyzed 35 Terabytes of data using
890,000 years of computer time. We plan to launch a second search
using a Southern-hemisphere radio telescope, and are working on
a new software infrastructure to support this and other projects.
