The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) in the

Optical Spectrum

Radobs Read Me

 
The files on this diskette are copies of documents uploaded onto OSU's
Radobs Bulletin Board between December 11, 1990 and May 7, 1991.  Some of
the files include slight changes to numerical results, where errors have
been noted.  The files sizes of the earlier files listed in RADOBS.26 are
slightly larger than uploaded onto Radobs, due to the later inclusion of
Copyright notices.  The actual files sizes of the later documents are
slightly larger than listed, due to the later inclusion of the Radobs
bulletin board reference numbers.

This series of files on Optical SETI, is provided in the interests of
science to OSU's Radobs bulletin board, the SETI Institute and other
interested parties.  It may be freely copied, in whole or in part, and
distributed within these organizations and NASA.  It should not be
distributed without the Copyright notices attached.  If any of this material
is to be included in a book, report, proposal, journal, magazine, newspaper,
or electronic media, the permission of the author must be sought first, and
due acknowledgement given.  The author has no objection to the use of this
material for promoting scientific and public awareness of Optical SETI
concepts, but wishes to retain his Copyright on this series of documents.

A superbly illustrated Viewgraph Report on The Search For Extraterrestrial
Intelligence (SETI) In The Optical Spectrum is expected to be available
later this summer.  It contains nearly 300 pages of text, graphs and
diagrams explaining Optical SETI concepts and rationale.  This report will
be made available to selected organizations promoting SETI.  The author is
open to offers to write the first (technical) book on this subject.

The files on this disk are in ASCII format and may be loaded into any text-
processor for viewing and printing.  Set the line length for > 76 characters
to avoid text-wrapping.  The advantage of using a text-processor to view and
print the files is that the page breaks can be adjusted prior to printing. 
Alternatively, the files can be individually viewed and printed from the DOS
prompt using TYPE FILENAME, and COPY FILENAME PRN commands, respectively.
