US astronomers launch search for alien life on 86 planets

from PhysOrg.com

The Green Bank Radio Telescope in West Virginia has begun listening for signs of alien life on 86 possible Earth-like planets. Part of the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence project, GBRT will collect data from 86 planets that were chosen from a list of nearly 1,300 candidates. Selections were made based on surface temperatures being between 0 and 100 degrees Celsius — because they are a lot more likely to harbor life. The project will likely take about a year to complete, and will be helped by a team of 1 million at-home astronomers, known as SETI@home users, who will help process the data on personal computers. more
