If a "bottleneck" is looming, particularly in terms of number-crunching to
analyze data, has anyone considered a program like SETI_at_home? They've had
enormous success in using distributed computing to analyze signals from
Arecibo, and I'm pretty sure the same spaceheads who run SETI_at_home would
also consider using a screen saver that might find an asteroid that could
clobber Earth. I sure would!
