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).
