    Angry Seti Shuts Down

    Maybe I am the only one here who cares, but I almost started crying. No more shuttles, the entire space program in jeopardy and now this:

    Diminished funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the state of California has shut down the SETI Institute's search for extraterrestrial life.

    and

    SETI has temporarily halted one of its chief alien-hunting tools, the Allen Telescope Array, citing lack of funding.

    I'm really sorry to hear this and hope private funding can float this project. It's a valuable endeavor.
