Caption: Seti@home. Young boy looking at a home computer monitor displaying the SETI@home (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence at Home) screen saver. This screen saver is a product of SERENDIP, a group dedicated to investigating alien intelligence. The SETI@home software allows home computer users to download chunks of data from the Arecibo radio telescope, Puerto Rico, via the internet. The software will then scan the data and check for radio signals of alien origin. When the data is processed, the user will be prompted to send back the processed data, via the internet. The SETI@home project has increased SERENDIP's radio signal processing power tenfold.
