Thanks for helping!
We couldn't do any of this without you. Our search relies on the generosity of those who donate their computing resources and electricity, their coding skills, and also financial help to make what we do possible. Any and every contribution counts, and we appreciate all of you. While we are not funded by big government grants, we are fortunate to be based at one of the world's leading public universities, where one of our most precious resources is the bright young minds who will be the scientists and engineers leading the search in the years to come.
So we invite you, if you feel motivated to do so, to help us with the resources to set up an undergraduate lab with new software-defined radio tools to help train our undergrads in the tools of the trade. To get an idea of how engaged these students are, check out our interview with Kyle at https://youtu.be/PIJ6TkM46wE. And if you'd like to support our work, please visit https://crowdfund.berkeley.edu/project/1704. But whether or not you choose to contribute financially, we are so grateful for all of you that have chosen to be a part of SETI@home as we attempt together to answer humanity's biggest question. Thanks!

Breakthrough Listen data now flowing.
Happy Yuri's Night #55, the 55th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's historic first space flight on April 12, 1961.
In celebration, we're starting distribution of Breakthrough Listen data from the Green Bank Telescope today. No intervention is necessary on your part. The main difference you will see is a change in your screen saver graphics, if you have them running. We'll still be distributing Arecibo data as well, so that won't change.
The Breakthrough Initiative is also distributing raw data in multiple formats, so you can write your own analysis code if you'd like.
You can read about it in this press release.

Crowdfunding to support our undergrads
We're raising money to support our undergrads to build hardware to search for ET. We'd love for you to help at https://crowdfund.berkeley.edu/project/1704. Perks at the higher levels include a roundtable with BSRC Director Dr. Andrew Siemion, tours of our UC Berkeley labs, and a behind-the-scenes tour of the Green Bank Telescope. Or you can just bask in the warm fuzzy glow of helping out our undergrads. Every donation counts!
