Ray: I love that the project's initials refer to a form of reggae: SKA. Based on the blurb, it seems the project will be capable of sensing other forms of life; not just human being types. Albeit, limited to carbon based forms of life. ----- Among the SKAís missions: finding an answer to the question, Are We Alone? From a defense perspective, thatís a coy way of asking whether there are aliens out there with the capacity and appetite to attack us. The SKA will be able to detect very weak extraterrestrial signals and search for complex molecules, the building blocks of life. Many new planets outside our solar system have been discovered in recent years, but itís not clear whether they host life. The search for extraterrestrial transmission has been underway for a long time, but the SKAís sensitivity will provide a key advantage. ----- KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
