Los Angeles - Injection of funds in excess of U.S. $ 200 thousand from benefactors, including the actress Jodie Foster, uplifting project search for extraterrestrial intelligent beings. Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute as the owner of 42 giant radio antennas in California’s return to find an alien signal after receiving such assistance.
The giant disc to receptacle alien sound known as the Allen Telescope Array stopped operation since last April because of the cessation of funding from the University of California Berkeley. These conditions make the project the most serious alien signal search in the world is almost over.
Since the termination of a radio telescope operation, two thousand people shoulder to shoulder them aside some money for this project. One of the philanthropist is the actress Jodie Foster who plays Eleanor Arroway, researchers are looking for aliens in the movie Contact.
The film aired in 1997 is a silver-screen edition of the novel by Carl Sagan with the same title. Eleanor’s character in the movie Contact is made Sagan once inspired by one of the founders of the SETI Institute, Jill Tarter.
“The story Contact illustrates how a radio signal to end the isolation of humanity from the world out there as well as changing our world,” said Jodie Foster in a message accompanying her help.
Searching intelligent creatures like the SETI Institute is very different from the community who believe in the existence of Unidentified flying object (UFO). Instead of looking for alien artifacts like a flying saucer and dead alien, SETI just looking for the mysterious signals from space.
Developmental biology and astronomy show intelligent life is likely to emerge from a planet orbiting another star. This creature then develop a communications technology that utilizes electromagnetic waves. SETI Institute itself hoping to capture the “leakage” of this alien signals from the earth.
The plan, contributions are immediately channeled to the SETI Institute so that the Allen Telescope Array in operation again in September to look for alien signals from space.
