Operating on money and equipment scrounged from the public and from Silicon Valley millionaires, and on the stubborn strength of their own dreams, a band of astronomers recently restarted one of the iconic quests of modern science, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence =97 SETI, for short =97 which had been interrupted last year by a lack of financing. Early in December, a brace of 42 radio telescopes, known as the Allen Telescope Array, nestled here in the shadow of Lassen Peak, came to life and resumed hopping from star to star in the constellation Cygnus, listening for radio broadcasts from alien civilizations. The lines are now open, but with lingering financial problems, how long they will remain that way is anybody=92s guess. These should be boom times for those seeking out aliens, or at least their radio proxy. [More at site... thanks to iana Cammack for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
