LOFAR - European SETI search

A massive new telescope, with 44 stations spread across Europe, will soon kick the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) into high gear.

The LOFAR (the pan-European Low Frequency Array) project has unveiled new images and observing plans for the telescope, which is currently under construction, Discovery News reports.
