Hunt For Intelligent Aliens Focuses On Faint Laser Flashes
by Charles Q. Choi

When it comes to detecting laser pulses aliens might shoot at
Earth to attract our attention, scientists now find they can
detect signals as faint as a single photon of light every few
tiny fractions of a second.

Astronomers have gazed at the skies for decades searching for
signs of extraterrestrial intelligence. Lasers can in principle
help transmit messages over extraordinary distances, but while
scientists have monitored a large number of stars looking for
alien laser signals - for instance, facilities at Harvard and
Princeton scanned more than 10,000 sun-like stars for several
years - no evidence for any have been found yet.
