Seti@home needs you!!

Posted by dandare on January 5, 2008

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).

For all the info see http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/

“The Sun” throws more light on UFO sightings?? or not.

Posted by dandare on January 5, 2008

The sun wrote about “New cornish UFO sighting Pic” (or should that read new corny ufo sighting pic), posted on january 4th 2007.

“Why does the sun newspaper also get on my nerves (other newspaper UFO articles make me laugh, but not this paper)….. it’s simply because they have absolutely no proper investigational methods whilst doing these reports; all the alleged sightings are mostly of the kind that ” i never saw anything when i took the photograph, and then when i took a closer look, low and behold a ufo”.


….Of course they mean of the alien kind, as probably they do not know the meaning of the word anyway ((example “I didn’t see any green men flying them, but I am sure they were UFOs” -extract from posting)). All/most of the witnesses (probably prodded by the journalists) say “i’m sure its a ufo”. Have they checked this out correctly…. i think not. Have they tried to find out what else it could be?   

Ok…. you might have gathered, i’m not a BIG fan of this newspaper, but can you see why?


For instance, could the photograph on this article, be a silvery balloon?? what else could it be…for instance! 

Again i ask….. do we need this type of ufology in the limelight, as it seems absolutely meaningless without proper background research/analysis? Wait ’til the summer and we’ll be onto one man and his dog, creating 50 crop circles in one night as an article?? hang on… that could be quite good… any volunteers!!   ok i jest.

It’s about as useless as an FOIA that stanton friedman recieved here after 10 years of waiting….

Rant over and i apologize again…
