SETI Live: Search for Extraterrestrial Signals

(Have you ever seen a movie “Contact” with Jodie Foster? Or have you ever heard about Carl Sagan or Seth Shostak?)

Telescope data from The Allen Telescope Array (ATA) are processed with public in order to look for the artificial signals that aren’t coming from the Earth.

From the website:
“SETILive is taking the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) directly to you by presenting radio frequency signals LIVE from the SETI Institute’s Allen Telescope Array (ATA) while it’s pointed at stars that, based on Kepler exoplanet discoveries, have the best chances of being home to an alien civilization. We’ll also be putting you “in the loop” where if enough of you see a potential extraterrestrial (ET) signal in the same data, then within minutes, the ATA will be interrupted and sent back to take a second look. The data you see will be from frequencies where human-made Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) crowds them and we believe the human eye will have a better chance than SETI’s computer algorithms to find ET signals there.”
