Endorsement from Arthur C. Clarke


The following fax was received from Arthur C. Clarke on September 28.  Here
follows the text of his message:

                             Arthur C Clarke, CBE

                     (address/communication info deleted)

To Whom It May Concern:

Optical SETI:

I applaud Dr. Stuart Kingsley's almost single-handed efforts to hunt for
intelligent signals from other civilizations in the optical spectrum. 
Although I know that many authorities in the SETI field are extremely
skeptical of success, the experts have often been proved wrong in the past! 
What makes Dr. Kingsley's approach so interesting is that useful work can be
done by amateurs with modest equipment.  In fact, I am proposing that the
45 cm telescope being donated to the Arthur Clarke Centre by the Japanese
Government may be used for this search.

I hope that anyone who is in a position to do so will offer Dr. Kingsley
moral and financial support in his laudable enterprise.

Yours faithfully,

Dr. Arthur C. Clarke, CBE
