20 years and counting!

É este o titulo de um post no projecto Seti@Home do dia 17.05.2019

Happy Anniversary! On this date in 1999, SETI@home came online. Since then millions of our volunteers have helped us sift through petabytes of data from multiple radio telescopes. ET still hasn’t shown up to the party.

We’re not discouraged. We’re able to examine less than a tenth of a percent of the radio spectrum, over only 1/3 of the sky and a limited number of additional stars. But our capabilities are increasing every day. In 1999 it took up to a week to process a single workunit on a home PC. Now, on a machine with a GPU, it might only take a few minutes to do a far more detailed and more sensitive analysis. Who knows what the next 20 years will bring?

Segundo o meu perfil estou ligado ao projecto desde 03.04.1999
