SETI Suspends Its Search For Alien Life

I’m not sure if SETI@home will continue to operate. I used that for years before switching away from Windows. It always seemed like a good idea, and the program pioneered the use of distributed, excess computing power for crunching large data sets.

Anyway, as NASA decommissions the Space Shuttles, I wonder what the future of space exploration will be.

Privatized probably.

    That sucks! I’ve been participating in SETI@Home for years. And back in ’98 I interviewed Seth Shostak for the old Book Stacks Unlimited online bookstore. I may have that interview laying around.

    Yeah, an unfortunate budget-cutting casualty, but maybe SETI@home will survive in some form. Hope so.
