The Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (Seti) Institute has announced that due to funding cuts, the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) in California has been mothballed.
|The telescopes, at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory north of San Francisco, California, have a number of science goals, including searching for radio signals from intelligent life in the Universe. |
I don't know what any of the other goals of this array might have been, but the search for signals from home will be missed.
|Although the ATA isnít the only radio telescope facility which is capable of searching for alien life, itís the only one dedicated almost wholly to the task. |
