SETI's First Directed Search Fails To Find Evidence Of Aliens.
Ian O'Neill at Discovery News (2/8) writes, "SETI astronomers have completed their first 'directed' search" of candidate exoplanets found by the Kepler telescope using the Green Bank radio telescope, but "turned up no evidence of transmitting aliens." Former SETI chair Jill Tarter headed the search. While nothing was discovered, it "represents a critical step forward in the detection of intelligent civilizations beyond our solar system" by targeting the search more than in the past. O'Neill believes "the next logical step would be to probe exoplanetary atmospheres for spectroscopic traces of a biosphere, a path Kepler has started to lead us down."
They just can not believe that we are the only people that God created.
