The seti@home project has been quite a lot the last few weeks and as a result we went out and added in a 2nd project to most of the computers processing away, keeping the house warm in this cold season. SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data.

Einstein@home is a program that uses your computer’s idle time to search for gravitational waves from spinning neutron stars (also called pulsars) using data from the LIGO gravitational wave detector.
