Ditto on the blog...

Here's an idea...I printed out the statement from E and faxed it to my local news stations. Maybe if the mods or other crunchers could take the time and do so it could relieve some of the uninformed who take the news at face value?

Again it's just an idea...

So far at least eight views of my earlier blog post. How about $25 each to SETI Institute. Too much? Pick your own number.

I don't see why I should send money to someone who ignores the existence of SETI@home.

tullio-

I have seen this ignorant hogwash before. Some of you people ought to find out about what you say before you say it.

you are flat dead wrong. check this link on the SETI Institute web site for their reference to SETI@home

http://www.seti.org/page.aspx?pid=748

Also, if you have ever ever watched a video from SETI Institute, Jill Tarter speaks glowingly about SETI@home.

Just look at the Wired News interview with Jill Tarter which I linked in the Seti@home Staff Blog section. In big print at the left it says: We're trying to get the world involved, We're trying to open up this search so that it isn't just done in a silo by a tiny priesthood of astronomers.
We are not tiny, we are nor a priesthood and we are not astronomers. I am a physicist crunching data from the Atlas experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. I've already been insulted for having said that the SETI Institute does not recognize the importance of SEII@home but this is just a fact.

NPR's All Things Considered made a big deal out of the hibernation at the ATA. I sent them a comment that though Seti is down Seti@home is still alive and well. With any luck they'll use the comment on the air

Is the Allen Array still in Hibernation or active? I just visited the site of www.seti.org and there is no mention that is in hibernation now.

See www.setiquest.org. There is a video on the ATA explaining things.

All I saw there some useless videos of the Telescope and a one Liner that said it would be opening again. : /

You would think it would be BIG news with all the noise they made about it being shut down.

I don't know if there is a relationship but the USAF has built a 3.5 meter optical telescope in Socorro to watch space debris and NEO. Since the USAF was financing the ATA operation, as reported by "Nature" magazine, it might be that it decided instead to finance its own telescope rather than ATA and thus...

This whole thing is ridiculous. When you realize that the ATA is named for Paul Allen (of Microsoft billions)and how support of the ATA would be not even a drop in the bucket for him, it gets beyond laughable.

That is nothing compared to the 6 billion they LOST in IRAQ now why would anyone in their right mind send IRAQ 12 billion in CASH and not expect someone to steal it.

There is an article in a recent Nature magazine (28 July) describing the story of the Allen Telescope Array.The title of the article is "SETI is dead. Long live SETI". I wrote a comment explaining that SETI is not dead and SETI@home is very much alive. But people often identify SETI with the SETI Institute and forget SETI@home.

Hey Tullio-

Nice to see you here. If possible, did you see the article on line and might you have a link?

I had to give a password to read it, so I doubt I could link it.

I got a letter published in the UK Daily Mail saying exactly the same thing :-)
