A new list of Earth-like exoplanets has been announced, and we're bringing you the top nine.
Remember a while back when we wrote about the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence's (SETI) Allen Telescope Array (ATA) was shut down due to lack of funding? It seems the government wasn't keen on supporting the search for our interstellar neighbors, so SETI turned to you for help. Guess what guys we did it! The Allen Array is back in business!
Not too long ago it was feared that the SETI project's Allen Telescope Array, which is made up of 42 networked radio telescopes, was destined to switch off forever. While the array is currently down, it's scheduled to be reactivated — and soon.
The future wasn't looking bright for the SETI Institute, which announced the shutting off of its 42-telescope-strong array tasked with listening for alien life in the vastness of space. Who needs to peer into space, anyway? We'll know when we discover extraterrestrial life — y'know, when E.T. comes a-knockin' with his fancy space weapons.
The global financial crisis has just gone intergalactic. Citing a lack of funds, astronomers at the SETI Institute in California have closed down the Allen Telescope Array. I guess that means if ET tries to reach out to Earth, he'll get one of those annoying "this number is no longer in service" messages.
