Welcome to the #SETI@home IRC Channel on AfterNET

SETI@home, an international scientific distributed computing project using the idle cycles of computers such as yours in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, needs your help to process data received from the Arecibo, GBT, LOFAR, MeerKat, MWA & Parkes radiotelescopes. Join us today at !

Questions or comments ? Want to commiserate with fellow data crunchers on tuesdays' maintenance outages ? Afraid you'll be abducted if we contact aliens ? Concerned that they are already here mutilating cows, burning our lawns and experimenting on us, or worried sick that we might really be alone in this humongous Universe ? You can reach our IRC channel to discuss these issues (and others) through your favorite client, or through AfterNET's web portal at
