Is Anybody Out There?


Lancaster Eagle Gazette, February 26, 2000, Page 3A

Lacaster Eagle Gazette, March 2000

The only problem with this article is the impression given in the opening paragraph that SETI is about signaling to ETIs.  Hardly any radio transmissions directed at stars for SETI purposes have been undertaken.  Only radio leakage from our terrestrial radio, TV and radar transmitters has been sent out into space.  Otherwise the passive search or listening activity called "SETI" would be called "CETI" - Communications with Extraterrestrial Intelligence.  Unfortunately, this is a common mistake made by journalists not familiar with the subject.
