Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence
This actual CD album from Changing Images is dedicated to Project SETI – The Search for extraterrestrial Intelligence. And they are not alone with this: 40 years ago the project SETI was startet, triggerd by an article from Cocconi and Morrison published in the magazine NATURE. They argued, that it should be possible to receive messages from alien intelligences with radiotelescopes even through a distance of thousands of lightyears. Frank Drake, a researcher of astrophysics started at that time his first projects to analyse radiotelescope-signals for possible messages. With his known “Drake-formula” he showed, that there must be intelligent life, using technology similar or higher developed compared to mankind with significant high probability. Today, he is president of the SETI-Institute, dedicated to this search. To analyse the huge amount of data, a unique project was founded – called SETI@home. Via Internet, the calculating power of hundred thousands of PCs is connected – more than 50.000 years CPU-time was achieved right now, more than any supercomputer could offer. (Info: http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu). History will show, wether this giant search will succeed.
Changing Images approaches to this story in the tradition of Stanley Kubricks
