SETI@Home Signal Story Sees Much More Than Meets the Eye
Support SETI Research

by Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer
September, 2004

An article in New Scientist magazine, entitled “ Mysterious signals from 1000 light years away,” published in 2004, implied that the UC Berkeley SETI@home project had uncovered a very convincing candidate signal that might be the first strong evidence for extraterrestrial intelligence.

Alas, this story was misleading.

According to Dan Werthimer, who heads up the UC Berkeley SERENDIP SETI project, this is a case of a reporter failing to understand the workings of their search. He says that misquotes and statements taken out of context give the impression that his team is exceptionally impressed with one of the many candidate signals, SHGb02+14a, uncovered using the popular SETI@home software. They are not.
