Just think -- if intelligent life exists on worlds beyond Earth, how many different Astrology systems there would be!
SETI, which stands for Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, has made a mission of exploring the nature and prevalence of life in the universe since the mid-1980s. It’s best known for its Allen Telescope Array of radio dishes, which Jodie Foster made famous while playing a SETI researcher in the 1997 movie “Contact.”
Foster’s character, a scientist who believes in extra-terrestrial intelligence, was best known for stating if there aren’t other intelligent worlds out there, it would be “an awful waste of space.”
Problem is, they have inadequate government support, according to SETI CEO Tom Pierson.
It's too bad, considering recent news has been filled with reports about new planets and scientists becoming more supportive and open to the likely possibility of alien life. Seriously. This isn’t just the stuff of conspiracy theorists and UFO fanatics anymore.
Last spring NASA astronomers announced they found 1,235 new planets, with somewhere between 5 and 50 of them being in a “habitable zone” like Earth that could possibly support life.
TIME magazine also ran an article about the booming field of “astrobiology,” and Washington Post news reporter Marc Kaufman has a book titled “First Contact,” both detailing the fact that scientists are more confident than ever that life does exist out in the universe. In his book, Kaufman predicts scientists will discover life on other planets within this century.
SETI accepts donations from the public if you want to contribute to their funding and help keep their alien-seeking radio dishes up and running.
