I think its awesome that he would spend so much money to fund something like this. I know he has a lot of money and this may not be a lot to him, but hey- i'll never have that kind of money.

Hi kinglizard!!

Thanx for the news - I have no idea why I didn't spot it until now? Mr Paul Allen is a wonderful person - all praise to him!!


The project sounds fantastic - you know, we *might* just get lucky here and find the proof we need - short of a UFO landing for all to see on the White House lawn, of course!!
