This map shows SETI@home transmissions during a period of five minutes collected within the past 24 hours, and includes IP2Location LITE data available from ip2location.com. Current data is collected at Arecibo, Green Bank, and Parkes.
SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI).
SETI experiments are trying to determine whether other intelligent, technologically capable, life exists in the universe, to answer the question “Are we alone?” or “Is anybody out there?”
Millions of volunteers, in 226 countries, have downloaded the SETI@home screensaver. The SETI@home volunteers have formed one our planet’s most powerful supercomputers and have enabled the world’s most sensitive SETI search.
Thousands of students are running SETI@home as part of their science curriculum. The question “Are we alone?” touches on many disciplines, including physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology, engineering, and computer science.
