Join the hunt for the Higgs boson and alien life!

CERN built the world’s largest grid computing resource and now anyone with Internet connectivity and a computer can participate by helping run more simulation of particle physics. ‘Those who want to volunteer will download an x86 Sun Microsystems virtualization software package called VirtualBox, which runs the Monte Carlo simulations on home computers. An open-source distributed computing platform called Boinc to manages the Test4Theory tasks. Boinc is also used in distributed computing projects like searches for extraterrestrial intelligence or protein folding.’

If you want to join the hunt for Higgs boson, check LHC@home.

Now another good news: the #SETI Institute announced it has raised enough money to bring the Allen Telescope Array back online! ‘The SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to scientific research, education and public outreach […] The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.’

If you want to support SETI, you can still donate here.
