Searching the Skies for Alien Laser Beams - The Atlantic

Statistician Nate Tellis and Astronomer Geoff Marcey recently mined 12 years of back data from the Keck Observatory in a creative effort to search for signals of extraterrestrial life. Their result: "It didn't find anything" says The Atlantic's Marina Koren. Tellis thinks such an outcome from a SETI effort should not discourage: "SETI has been in process for about 60 years, and it's been non-detection after non-detection after non-detection." But the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence goes on, as rightfully does ufology, which is saddled with even more impediments. (WM)
