Remember how I mentioned that SETI was shutting down the Allen Telescope Array due to lack of funds? Well, there’s been enough public outcry that they’ve set up a fundraising site, SETIstars, specifically for getting the ATA back up and listening. From the About page:
We have launched SETIstars to formalize the significant giving that has already happened since the announcement of ATA’s hibernation and to be the start of a broader community engagement strategy for the SETI Institute.
The current goal is to raise $200,000 in the next 38 days–and they’re 10% there! Donate to help them out (since I don’t think they’ll take me up on the idea of a bake sale).
