what will they FIND?
They just raised $100 million dollars and are spending it on finding aliens…seriously.
One Astronomer described this technique as 100x more powerful. S.E.T.I. is of course the non profit organization that scours the universe for evidence of extraterrestrials. And the team has a new system they are excited about:
Stephen Hawking, Frank Drake and dozens of journalists gathered at the Royal Society in London last week to hear astronomers announce a ground-breaking new project to search for intelligent extraterrestrial life called “Breakthrough Listen.” They will be using two of the world’s largest radio telescopes (Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia and the Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia) to listen for radio messages from intelligent alien species. Scientists have chosen to target the nearest million stars as well as the nearest 100 galaxies. This project will also monitor the Galactic plane for months at a time.
Do you think this will work?
