I came across this newpaper excerpt from 1901.
SIGNALS FROM MARS.
Was Telsa working for SETI at the time?

The first radio pulsar was discovered on November 28, 1967. Tesla's "signal from Mars" was likely a pulsar, a signal unknown at the time.

No doubt part of the fascination that included the stories of John Carter travelling through a portal to Barsoom.
Love Tesla (he gave us AC and the concept of energy transference) but by 1910 he fell into obscurity and debt. (Shame on us for letting a brilliant mind fall so far.)
No doubt he was a member of our SETI...
The anciant Eygptians had already calculated with some accuracy the distance between earth and the moon and had some concept of electricity.
I think there has alwways been a SETI secret society.
Phewie... We can come out in the open now ;)
