The COSETI Observatory
Why have I not heard about this before?
Was the wrong fork in the road taken in the early 60ís?
- Electromagnetic SETI was first proposed (1959) just before the laser was invented (1960).
- The radio frequency SETI constituency became well-established before the potential of laser technology was fully appreciated.
- As with many scientific endeavors, Microwave SETI had picked up such a head of steam that it has been difficult to change direction.
