SETI Institute Teams with Zooniverse to Launch SETI Live!

The SETI Institute, TED and Zooniverse Launch SETI LIVE to Empower Citizen Scientists to Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

SETI Live program at www.setilive.org
As part of the TED Prize Wish made by the SETI Institute’s Jill Tarter, the TED Prize launched SETI Live (setilive.org): a site where – for the first time – the public can view data being collected by radio telescopes and collectively help search for intelligent life on other planets.

TED, the nonprofit dedicated to Ideas Worth Spreading, established the TED Prize in 2005, born out of a vision by the world’s leading entrepreneurs, innovators, and entertainers to turn ideas into action one Wish at a time.  SETI Live was created in collaboration with the Zooniverse team at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium and is the latest development of Dr. Tarter’s 2009 TED Prize wish, “to empower Earthlings everywhere to become active participants in the ultimate search for cosmic company.”

The launch of SETI Live opens the door for anyone to help search for intelligent life on other planets.  For the first time ever, data being received by the Allen Telescope Array in Hat Creek, CA will be made public so citizen scientists can scan it for potential signals.

On the heels of the launch of SETI Live, SCIENCE has partnered with TED and the SETI Institute by designing a call-to-action programming campaign, dedicating the month of March to answering this most indelible question, “Are We Alone?”  Four world premiere programs including Morgan Freeman’s Through the Wormhole, Alien Encounters and NASA’s Unexplained Files will premiere every Tuesday throughout the month of March.  Each special world premiere will drive viewers to the SETI Live site and empower citizen scientists everywhere to unite towards a common goal.

Learn more about this exciting new partnership and then jump on SETI Live and get started today! Over 30,000 people have already begun searching!

Thanks, everyone!
