SETI To Resume Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence; Will
Target Kepler Data
by Ray Sanders

After being shut down for over six months due to financial
problems, The Allen Telescope Array (ATA) is once again
searching other planetary systems for radio signals, looking for
evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence.

Some of the first targets in SETI=92s renewed search will be a
selection of recently discovered exoplanet candidates by NASA=92s
Kepler mission.

"This is a superb opportunity for SETI observations," said Dr.
Jill Tarter, the Director of the Center for SETI Research at the
SETI Institute. "For the first time, we can point our telescopes
at stars, and know that those stars actually host planetary
systems =96 including at least one that begins to approximate an
Earth analog in the habitable zone around its host star. That=92s
the type of world that might be home to a civilization capable
of building radio transmitters."

What other studies will SETI be performing with the array, and
how were they able to restart the Allen Telescope Array?
