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 And if you’d like to support our work, please visit 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!
