Little Ferry, NJ.., 1 February 2009 -- The SETI League, Inc., nonprofit leaders in the scientific Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI), today published its 2008 Annual Report, detailing the grass-roots organization's accomplishments during its fourteenth full year of operation. The global economic recession, which has severely curtailed donations, resulted in the nonprofit organization incurring a sizeable deficit. Nevertheless, thanks to the tireless volunteer efforts of its 1500 members in 62 countries, significant scientific progress was made.

In addition to containing the organization's 2008 financial report and 2009 budget, this latest annual report, available for download from, details The SETI League's program service accomplishments in the areas of Science, Technology, Public Education, and Media and Outreach. The report also includes The SETI League's Vision and Mission statements, the annual President's Report, a Case for Support, acknowledgement of the organization's contributors, and an introduction of new members.

Largely using radio telescopes and optical telescopes, SETI scientists seek to determine whether humankind is alone in the universe. Since Congress terminated NASA's SETI funding in 1993, The SETI League and other scientific groups have privatized the research. Amateur and professional scientists interested in participating in the search for intelligent alien life, and citizens wishing to help support it, should email join_at_setileague_dot_org, check the SETI League Web site at, send a fax to +1 (201) 641-1771, or contact The SETI League, Inc. membership hotline at +1 (800) TAU-SETI. Be sure to provide us with a postal address to which we will mail further information. The SETI League, Inc. is a membership-supported, non-profit [501(c)(3)], educational and scientific corporation dedicated to the scientific Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.

P.S. Tearsheets are always appreciated. Thank you.
