Ahoy, shipmates!

The BBC World Service Discovery is running a two-part series, “Seti: an array of hope”, by Jason Palmer, the BBC Science reporter. Part one will be broadcast today, and there then seems to be a podcast available, too.

In the main role appear to be the present financial problems of the Seti Institute and the Allen Telescope Array. Seti@home and other UC Berkeley SETI efforts are being noted, too. It goes even further: see e.g. the part about Prof. Paul Davies of the Beyond Center at Arizona State University.

Pasi,
I read the article and listened to the podcast. Both were very good.

Its good to know that at least a few groups are taking this search seriously. Even if its difficult to fund the search.

John.
