Help SETI Get Allen Array Back On Line

State and federal budget woes have caused the Allen Telescope Array to be put into "hibernation." The Allen Array is the most powerful tool yet in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The SETI Institute has launched a public effort to raise funds to get the Allen Array up and running again. You can help. It may sound like a small thing, and perhaps not an immediate government priority in the larger scheme of things, but the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence is growing in leaps in bounds, aided by the many planetary revelations of the NASA Kepler Mission. Take a moment and visit the SETI Institute web site and donate if you can. A few dollars each, from a bunch of us, could help tremendously.
