50 years of computing time for the Seti project
Our Seti team is getting bigger and bigger. The ComputerBase Seti team has almost 200 members after only 5 months. The computing power that our hard-working crunchers have so far provided for Seti has now broken the magical 50 year limit when all data packets are calculated one after the other.
That's 73,000 hours that the members' computers have calculated on more than 45,000 data packets (WU's). Some of our strongest crunchers are so-called 24/7 cruncher, which means that their computers run 24 hours, 7 days a week to help the University of Berkeley in the search for extraterrestrial signals. But also the many part-time crunchers, those who only let their computer do the math for Seti now and then, contribute significantly to the enormous computing power of the ComputerBase Seti team. We are all looking forward to the next limit, the 50,000 WU mark. We don't lose sight of our distant goal of getting into the top 200 clubs - it should be ready in summer.
