SETI@Home approaches 3 million mark
Author: JT Smith
Derrick Rose told us about this story at CNN: "The Planetary Society... expects that the 3 millionth participant will sign up next week to use the SETI@home software, the largest distributed computer experiment ever undertaken. The winner will receive a DVD copy of Carl Sagan's series COSMOS, a SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) poster autographed by SETI@home's chief scientist and a lifetime membership in the Planetary Society. Virtual volunteers should visit either http://planetary.org or http://setiathome.berkeley.edu."
