SETI Telescopes Will Resume The Hunt For Aliens

The SETI (or Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institutes’s Allen Telescope Array, which is made up of 42 networked radio telescopes searching for alien life, shut down in 2008 after its operator, the Radio Astronomy Lab of UC Berkeley, ran out of funds. SETI then went to work seeking $200,000 from the public for reactivation, and recently announced that the necessary funds had been acquired after nearly 2,300 folks ponied up the dough.

SETI co-founder Tom Pierson now thinks operations could resume as early as this September.
