    The science of [email protected] SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is a scientific area whose goal is to detect intelligent life outside Earth. One approach, known as radio SETI, uses radio telescopes to listen for narrow-bandwidth radio signals from signals are not known to occur naturally, so a detection would provide evidence of extraterrestrial technology. The book had been made into a high-budget science fiction film, starring Jodie Foster, who had talked with Tarter before taking the role. Figure Jill Tarter (credit: Christian Schidlowski) Tarter is quick to point out, “Carl Sagan wrote a book about a woman who does what I do, not about me.”.   Matloff thus suggests that SETI take a look at red giant/red dwarf binaries within light years from the Sun. He then proceeds to go through a list of candidates, finding four possibilities: Alschain (Beta Aquilae), Gienah (Epsilon Cygni), Aldebaran (Alpha Tauri) and Theta Ursae Majoris [see note in the comments section].   SETI’s principal methodology was first outlined by two physicists in the journal Nature in They proposed that the radio telescope, a new technology used to “see” objects in space Author: James Ryerson.
