The SETI@home (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) project, developed by The Hathersage Group, and sponsored by Adobe Systems, has been using the computing power of the world’s PCs for a long time now for their project to find alien life.

The app runs on Android 2.2 (or higher) and is coming to the Android first (take that iPhone fans).
