What if They are trying to reach us? SETI is raising funds to get the Allan Array going again

Bring back the ATA
Allen Telescope Array (ATA)


What if an alien intelligence is calling us from a distant planet and we have the phone off the hook?What if one (or more!) of the Kepler worlds recently discovered are emitting signals RIGHT NOW and we aren’t listening?

That would be one heck of a message left on the answering machine. What would it say?

From the newsletter:

The ATA is a powerful field of 42 linked radio telescopes in Northern California that enable countless avenues of astronomical study, chief among them the search for evidence of extraterrestrial civilizations and insight into the nature of our cosmic origins. In the wake of a recent funding shortfall, however, this invaluable tool lies dormant and our vision of the universe around us has gone dark.

Last checked, they were almost 1/8 of their way to the goal, mainly small donors.

Some ONE is trying to reach us but most don't listen. The message might be something like "look to your DNA to see a tiny glimmer of the majesty of the Information and Language (Logos) of MY image in which you are made." tgpeeler
