US astronomers launch search for alien life on 86 planets


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
