Life at the SETI Institute

SETI Gurls (Video)

i-3faaacdc39db93f4bf056aa48ddf78f0-2010 REU Students.jpgEvery summer, the SETI Institute hosts 15-20 college students from around the country as part of its Astrobiology Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) internship program. The program, which is funded by the National Science Foundation and the NASA Astrobiology Institute, pairs each student with a research mentor at the SETI Institute. At the end of the 10-week internship, each student presents a talk and written report on their research project, and many students go on to present their work at professional conferences during the following academic year.

This year, our 19 REU interns made a music video documenting their experiences! Check out the video for exclusive footage of the SETI Institute offices, and watch for the cameo appearance by Dr. Jill Tarter.

Check back to watch the video in which the REU interns describe their summer projects at the SETI Institute in a two-minute report.

    The ET use light technology to communicate i.e. information travels , communication is established around the universe by light or something faster than light. Radio waves are too slow to transfer, if they were fast they could have caught our radio programs from distant planets , Radio telescopes are useless they will never find any signal !
