    SETI@home to shut down after two decades of crowdsourced alien hunting

    [email protected] to shut down after two decades of crowdsourced alien hunting

    The program let anyone with an internet connection search for E.T. Now it says its work is done.

    After March 31, a bunch of amateur alien hunters will regain some personal computing power. The Berkeley SETI Research Center announced Monday that [email protected], the two-decades-old crowdsourcing effort to hunt for signs of E.T. in radio telescope data using internet-connected computers, is shutting down at the end of the month.

    The home-based search for extraterrestrial intelligence project was launched from University of California, Berkeley, back in 1999 -- when the internet was still a relatively new thing to many people and the term crowdsourcing had not yet been coined.

    My theory is that aliens wouldn't use radio waves! There are advantages in using much higher frequencies (visible / UV / XRay) which offer far higher bandwidth and far lower beam divergence using a high power directional transmitter e.g. laser.

    I've been saying that all along, surely an advanced galaxy hopping aliens wouldn't be using radio waves.

    Aliens use real language not some easy solve language.
