I thought i would post this you tube video here, as it just gets you thinking……and wondering. It lasts just over 5 minutes. We are here: the pale blue dot
The Pale Blue Dot: above : As told by Carl Sagan through some of the uploaders favorite films set to the music of Mogwai… i think it is very well done (some of my favorite films are here too).
see here for more about him.
This video shows us how small we are in the universe, among other things, and it makes you ponder about life/what if,ect ?

Astronomy.com mentions that ”Volunteers needed to process data“ (posted 3rd january 2008).
It mentions that “The longest-running search for radio signals from alien civilizations is getting a burst of new data from an upgraded Arecibo telescope, which means the SETI@home project needs more desktop computers to help the data” (extract from article). It later goes on to say that
“”The next generation SETI@home is 500 times more powerful then anything anyone has done before,” says project chief scientist Dan Werthimer. “That means we are 500 times more likely to find ET than with the original SETI@home” (extract from article).
