Seti@Home

Anyone fascinated by astronomy is also likely to be interested in the possible existence of extra-terrestrial intelligences.

Software that anyone can download is available that makes your computer part of the analysis effort. A fascinating way to participate in the search for life elsewhere in the universe.
