For Immediate Release

LITTLE FERRY, NJ.., September 15, 1995 -- Noted author and educator Dr. H. Paul Shuch has long thrilled audiences not just on college campuses, but at engineering, astronomy, amateur radio, and science fiction conferences around the world. Paul is now available to entertain and enlighten any gathering. His informative and irreverent style masterfully mixes humor and hubris, slides and science, limericks and songs in an unforgettable update on the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI), humankind's ongoing effort to demonstrate that We Are Not Alone! In "Searching for Life Among the Stars" Paul introduces Project Argus, an effort to enlist 5,000 amateur radio astronomers in the world's first real-time, full-coverage microwave survey of the cosmos.

The aerospace engineer credited with designing the world's first commercial home satellite TV receiver, Paul serves as Executive Director of The SETI League, Inc., leaders in a scientific Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. Professor of Electronics at the Pennsylvania College of Technology (Penn State), he has taught engineering for more than twenty years, is the author of over 100 publications, and designed the patented BiDCAS aircraft anti-collision radar. Paul is the winner of several national awards, serves as a National Science Foundation advisor, and is a program evaluator for the American Council on Education. He is listed in seven different Who's Who publications.

All honoraria received are contributed to The SETI League, Inc., the membership-supported non- profit, tax-exempt [501(c)(3)], educational and scientific organization devoted to privatizing extra- terrestrial research in the wake of NASA's loss of SETI funding. To schedule Dr. Shuch for your next meeting, contact The SETI League, Inc. at (201) 641-1770, or email info_at_setileague_dot_org

SETI scientists seek to determine through microwave and optical measurements whether humankind is alone in the universe. Since Congress terminated NASA's SETI funding in 1993, The SETI League and other scientific groups have been attempting to privatize the research.

Be sure to provide us with a postal address to which we will mail further information.
