The Future of setiQuest?

What is to become of setiQuest?

I think we all are frustrated that it has not blossomed into a vibrant on line community devoted to participating in the search. As a result of discussions on the weekly setiQuest IRC chat (Tuesdays, 11am California time, 18:00GMT, at irc://irc.freenode.net/#setiquest) we have come to a decision.

ATA Relaunch Dec 5, 2011!

Dec 05, 2011

Today is the day! The ATA is relaunching after being in virtual hibernation since April 2011.

Poll Results - Are you concerned about space junk?

Are you concerned about space junk?

Our latest poll asked this question and the results are shown in the pie chart to the left. 

Here is my take on the results. 


I am here on my fourth trip to the ATA to help with un-hibernation efforts. The plan is to have our SETI searches operating by the end of the month. We will be announcing the exact date some time next week. At least that is the current plan.


We are continuing the re-opening effort of the ATA. No exact date is set yet, but it should be several weeks at the most. Don't worry - we will make a big announcement on the front page of setiQuest.org when a date is set.

Plants at the Allen Telescope Array

Last week while at the ATA I learned that there is an endangered plant that we need to pay attention to. It is the Baker's globe-mallow, aka Iliamna bakeri. My picture of it is to the left.
