Thanks for posting this Matt.
@Josh ,I'm about a quarter of the way through reading your Thesis and am going to have to return to the library to understand half of it. But so far I have found the work very interesting.
Congratulations to you for such dedication. Also thanks for a very fine piece of work to read.

just started reading, very interesting thus far! It's nice to get a view of the thinking behind astropulse and why we're using it now.

Hi,

Is SETI turning its ear to Gliese d, tusn out to be in the habitable zone around Gliese, however that planet having a permanent day and nite side, that might make it too hot for life to develop in the day side and the oposite holds true for the night side too. Nevertheless, if Gliese d turns out to have a dense atmosphere like Earth or Venus, then the greenhouse affect along with aerosols, along with water, might make life possible. Astronomers might want to look for chemical signatures such as mathane, and high levels of oxygen, nitrogen in the atmosphere of Gliese d. Gliese is a dwarf star, its fusion process of burning hydrongen into nitrogen is much slower than a Sun type star, a G star; and Gliese like the Sun seems to be stable star also, which is good news for life, since any high leves of radiation is not good for any life. Any thoughs on my comment, thank you.

I have also read the reports about Gliese d, but unfortunately Seti doesn't work like that. They 'piggy-back' their receiver on the Arecibo antennae, and take a feed off the data where the telescope is pointing at that time. If it's pointed that way, we might get some work from it, but no guarantees of that. Also Arecibo is purely a radio telescope and I'm not sure it can be used in the way you're suggesting to try to pick up chemical signatures in the atmosphere. In fact, I'm not sure any of the telescopes we have now (save maybe Hubble, or possibly Herschel) could do the observations you're looking for. I think the resolution needed would just be too difficult for today's telescopes. Maybe updates and new methods of observing could help, or maybe the next generation telescopes.

Let's live in hope. We have time...

When I was taught how to write for a science paper, we were told to use passive voice. "It was observed" "A xxx was used".

The abstract as it is sounds very self centered and ambitious to me...is this the accepted convention now?

My prof told us, in fact, that someone using the type of voice as it appears here, had his reviewers get up and walk out of the room before he had even finished his abstract. Something to consider...
