Ask Dr. SETI ®
Do you know of any scientific investigations into Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence in a more broad scope, i.e., not limited merely to microwave surveys of space? I'm interested in scientific investigations in a broader sense, that would include such analyses as the "Mars rocks".
The Doctor Responds:
Still in the electromagnetic realm, but not involving microwaves, is optical SETI. The Columbus Optical SETI Observatory, run by our colleague Dr. Stuart Kingsley, is the premier amateur effort in this field. We have done some preliminary range analysis of optical SETI, and consider this a worthy area for our members to explore further.
As for Mars meteorite find, two completely different takes can be found on the Web. See these two URLs:
