SETI@home and the Search for Spare Processors

Is there intelligent life in the universe? Here on earth, despite the blunders of humanity, many of us think we qualify, and figure if our species can do it, some other species on some other planet must have done it too. But how do you confirm the existence of intelligent life elsewhere when even the closest star, Alpha Centauri, is about 4.3 light years away? Based at the University of California, Berkeley's Space Sciences Laboratory, the SETI@home project is trying to answer that question. SETI stands for the "Search for Intelligent Life, and SETI@home is one of a number of searches for extraterrestrial life.
