New Search for Alien Life Launched with $100m By Stephen Hawking & Yuri Milner

By Lee Billings
Milner, a tech start-up entrepreneur and philanthropist, is partnering with scientists around the world to search for life among the stars
     SETI—the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence—has been one of the most captivating areas of science since its inception in 1960, when the astronomer Frank Drake used an 85-foot radio telescope in the first-ever attempt to detect interstellar radio transmissions sent by beings outside our solar system. Yet despite its high public visibility and near-ubiquity in blockbuster Hollywood science fiction, throughout most of its 55-year history SETI has languished on the fringes of scientific research, garnering relatively scant funding and only small amounts of dedicated observation time on world-class telescopes.

Today, in a live webcast originating from London and set for 6:30 am Eastern, the Russian entrepreneur Yuri Milner, along with the physicist Stephen Hawking, is announcing his intentions to change that. Watch the live streamed event below, starting at 6:30 am.

  1. Reagan was right when he hinted we need an alien invasion to unite the Planet from it's suicidal path.

    We face whatever comes, or is already here, hidden, or quit living.

    A nice gesture on the aliens part would be to bring back Sagan's probes, now outside the solar system polluting the Universe.
