Astronomers Worldwide Commemorate 50th Anniversary of Search for Extraterrestrials through New Observing Project

  • Categoría Astronomía
  • This week astronomers from twelve countries on six continents will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) by beginning a coordinated series of observations of several nearby stars—including two stars that were the target of the first search.
    , To demonstrate the advances in SETI over the past half century, on November 5, 2010, astronomers in Australia, Japan, and Korea will begin observations for radio and laser signals from civilizations circling these stars, followed over the next day by SETI searches in Italy, the Netherlands, France, Argentina, and the United States. Additional observations will take place in late November 2010.
