Recently Dan Werthimer was at the Smithsonian giving a talk about SETI. Video of this presentation is now available online.

Thanks for the heads-up Matt :)
I love the first two projects that were not funded ! :p
Dan makes a great tribute to all the volunteers of the SETI@home project.

Panchromatic SETI !
One of the new SETI programs our research group is launching this year is called “panchromatic SETI”. Led by Dr. Andrew Siemion, the project will search very nearby stars as well as stars determined to be most likely to host a solar-like exoplanet system. The experiment will use six different telescopes equipped with powerful spectrometers capable of examining five billion radio channels simultaneously and specialized infrared and visible light detectors, spanning the electromagnetic spectrum from the lowest frequencies that can pass through our planet’s ionosphere, through infrared, and up to optical light – from 50 MHz to 500 THz. This experiment is targeting a wide range of possible signal types indicative of the presence of advanced technology. These observations will be the most sensitive and comprehensive SETI searches of these stars ever performed.
