I saw this and found it a little interesting and I must be blind but is there a thread detailing what Red Rocket folding does, how it works, and some general FAQ?

Wiki FAQ: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folding@home

But to make it short and clear: software uses your GPU and/or CPU (up to you) at around 80-100% all the time (unless you switch it off) in order to do some calculations/generations for scientific based things like Cancer or Alzheimer's disease

Is this something like what "miners" do ? Why and who need such calculations? I'm just currious, cuz i have miner (KNC neptune (2x5cubes)), and there it works for bitcoins, what is the deal here ?

It's like mining, yes. But instead gaining profit for yourself, your PC calculates things for some Cancer or Alzheimer's diseases
