UFOs and the Possibility of Life on Other Planets – Part 2

John Ankerberg

By Dr. Ron Rhodes:
SETI: The Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence

SETI stands for “Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence.” This organization seeks to detect evidence of technological civilizations that may exist on planets orbiting other stars. Potentially, it is suggested, there are billions of locations outside our solar system that may contain life. It is SETI’s purpose to find some of these locations.[1]

The scientists at SETI use powerful radio telescopes to “listen” for evidence of alien life out there. SETI scientists listen for signals between 1,000 and 3,000 megahertz on the radio dial, where natural background static is at a minimum. After weeding out earthly and satellite signals, they have (so far) come up empty. There have been no messages from space. But they keep listening.
