Hello, everyone.

I haven't posted in quite a while, but I read some disturbing news this morning. It appears that the Allen Array has been put into hibernation as SETI no longer has the funds to continue it's operation.

They say they need five million dollars to run the array for two years.

I figured one way to help them was to get involved with facebook and start a campaign over there, and I knew the best place to come to ask for help with this would be ATS.

Head on over to: SETI and make a donation, and then post to facebook to spread the word.

I am sure ATS knows why this is important. I do not want to let this happen. Let's save SETI.

It would be nice, wouldn't it? Regardless, SETI needs to stay operational. And we need to help them.

Why do you want to save the Allen Array? Do you really think ET is using radio signals?

Not trying to say this in a negative way, but the money could be better spent exploring other means of communication.

Definitely going to donate. We cannot let SETI go down.

It's a sad day when something as exciting as looking for life in the universe is seriously having to consider shuttering its doors. Science takes another hit to the jaw.
They got my money.

Forget SETI, pointless..

Like going back to the Moon, pointless

Sorry Seti, the country is broke.

We can go back to looking for 'aliens' when the state of affairs improves.

I like SETI just as much as the next SETI fan but what has it really done?

I am all for finding ET but do you really think that if they ever found anything they would even be allowed to share it with everyone else?

If SETI ever did find anything we would not hear about it. It would be kept hush hush and the govt would go in and take everything!

I remember (i think) Stan Friedman debating someone from SETI. The people from seti were almost rude and condescending.

Almost as if he was mocking Ufology.

And I don't think that even if Seti did receive any type of real signal it would release it to the general public.

We can talk conspiracies and cover ups all day long. The fact of the matter is that if we do not keep open the possibilities of looking we will not find anything. Do other civilizations transmit in radio signals? I am not sure. Why would it be so outlandish to think that some might? We do.

Either way, I am all for other ways of looking for life. I am also for SETI. It's just one way of doing it. Without it, we are one possibility short.
