|Your personal background.|
|I was born in 1960 and work for the Federal Administration in Germany. I am married and very interested in computers, megalith history and astronomy (black holes, near earth objects).|
I am convinced that the history of mankind was strongly influenced by the impact of comets and asteroids. For example about 1220 before Christ the asteroid "Phaeton" destroyed the countries around the Mediterranean Sea and crashed into the North Sea destroying Atlantis. The most important impact was the "deluge comet" about 7552 before Christ which terminated more than 90 percents of mankind causing dramatic changes of world climate and geography. Also this impact was the origin of "doomsday", which plays an important part in Christian religion. The Genesis and the Revelation of St. John of the Christian bible are a correct historic description of what happened to earth after that devastating impact (Tsunamis, impact night etc. at the beginning).
Such a “doomsday impact" might happen every 10000 years. Therefore the next one could hit planet Earth within this century. In order to develop a deflection system against cosmic impacts we have to explore asteroids. Therefore I support Asteroids@home.
|Your opinions about Asteroids@home|
|In my opinion distributed computing projects are comparable with the old stone circles of the megalith centuries. The stone circles were used for astronomy and religion. Their builders wanted to explore the position of mankind in time and space. For that purpose the whole community had to work together to build those "supercomputers of the stone age". The picture above shows me 2005 at the stone circle of Callanish on the Outer Hebrides (north-west of Scotland).|
Today we are doing that again in a worldwide community using the BOINC-software. Our computers are contributing to answer some great questions of mankind. I prefer space related projects, because their results cannot be abused by companies for economic purposes. To explore the universe is one of the greatest adventures of mankind.
