TheSkyNet will use the power of the crowd on its star trek
Distributed Knowledge

“This ship, and her history, will shortly become the care of another crew. To them, and their posterity will we commit our future. They will continue the voyages we have begun, and journey to all the undiscovered countries, boldly going where no man, ... where no one has gone before."

Today, Tuesday 13 September, in Australia, 42 years after the final episode of the original Star Trek, a community computing science initiative was kicked-off to help discover the hidden Universe; it was officially launched in Curtin University. TheSkyNet project is a citizen science initiative that will be powered by members of the public contributing their spare computing power to the processing of radio astronomy data.
