Get rewarded for killing time at work searching for UFOs2/29/2012
If you're an armchair Agent Scully, you'll want to bookmark SETI's new website. SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) has re-launched its crowdsourced alien searching site, hoping that human participants will spot irregular frequencies in data streaming in from SETI's Allen Telescope Array. "People will see signals," SETI research director Dr. Jill Tarter told NPR. "And if these are signals that we haven't seen before, we'll follow up on them in real time."
SETILive.org rewards participating signal scanners with 4square-style badges, but we hope if you're the one who finds alien life, you'll score something other than a virtual award.
