Seti@Home is a distributed computing scheme that uses volunteers' computers from across the world to analyse data from radio telescopes in the hope of finding evidence of extra-terrestrial life. Teams of Seti@Home users often compete to see who can process the most data, the purpose of the task rather taking a back seat to beating your rivals!

HantsLUG has a group in the Seti@Home project, which currently has about 20 members. The HantsLUG Seti@Home group homepage is here.
