SETI@home needs your help. The SETI@home team has accomplished much in the past 6 months. We have successfully depolyed the "enhanced" version of SETI@home. The new seven beam data recorder has been installed at Arecibo and is recording the data that will be analyzed in the next phase of SETI@home. Server components required for the analysis of this data are being beta tested. Changes to the SETI@home application to improve the analysis of this data will be released soon. With this new data recorder, we have the ability to look at seven places in the sky simultaneously while recording fourteen times as much data as before. This means we will need more volunteers like you to help us process this data. So please, tell a friend about SETI@home (See:

But there is still far more to be done. Although we are pleased with the success of our spring funding drive, and grateful for the generosity of our donors, we could not afford to do everything we had hoped. In spite of the progress we have made, we would like to be able to sift through the results returned by your computers in order to identify candidates more rapidly so we can re-observe them. This rapid response validation system would also give you the ability to see the results your computers have/has returned in more detail. (For more information see:

To keep SETI@home operating for the next year, and to provide these new capabilities, will require approximately $540,000. Currently SETI@home is entirely funded by donations from people like you.

We hope that you will consider making a donation to SETI@home at this time. You can make a secure donation by credit card on our website ( Instructions for donation by check or money order are there as well. Unless you specify otherwise, your donation will be noted by a star icon next to your username on the SETI@home pages and your username will appear on our list of donors. If you do not wish to have this recognition you may indicate that as well. Please be assured that regardless of whether or not you choose to have your donation be anonymous, SETI@home will not share your address with other organizations.

You can check on our fundraising progress by visiting our main site at

Thank You,

SETI@home is a scientific experiment by the University of California in Berkeley, 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.

In the SETI@home project users can form groups. Groups can compete to analyze the most data, or they can meet and discuss SETI via the web.

Seti now runs as a project within Boinc.
