Dr. Masaki Morimoto, a SETI pioneer and one of the fathers of Japanese radio astronomy, passed away this morning at the age of 78. He suggested the frequency L11->L10 transition of formaldehyde (4.83GHz) as a possible magic frequency for extraterrestrial communications. He was active participant in SETI searches up to the present, and influenced many younger researchers. He will be missed.

Dr. Morimoto was, and still is, an inspiration to seekers of new knowledge and higher truths everywhere. If the afterlife is lived on another planet, maybe our first message from "out there" will come from him.
