In Earthfiles, Dreamland science reporter Linda Howe writes about a mysterious signal from deep in space that has been picked up by SETI. Have we detected intelligent life on another planet at last?
Linda quotes SETI Institute?s Seth Shostak as saying, “The sudden burst of radio energy lasted only 0.005 seconds, and had spectral characteristics that suggested that it was from a distant galaxy, probably billions of light-years from us.”
She quotes SETI’s Dan Werthimer as saying, “We probably won’t be able to decode it. We’ll know something’s out there, but we won’t know much about their civilization” and quotes Shostak as saying, “I’m cautiously optimistic we’ll find something by the year 2025.”
