    BBC News - Skynet seeks to crowdsource the stars

    Prior to the SKA being built and switched on, the computers joining ICRAR's Skynet will crunch data from current radio astronomy research projects.

    Those signing up to help will download a small program that will get a computer looking through data when that PC is not being used for anything else.
