SETI shutdown – ET signal cover up?

Astronomers at the SETI Institute said a drop in state and federal funds has forced the shutdown of the Allen Telescope Array.

The 42 radio dishes had scanned deep space since 2007 for signals from alien civilizations while also conducting hard scientific research into the structure and origin of the universe

The ATA is not only a powerful tool in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, but  also it’s been used to study all sources of intergalactic radio wave sources and has been used to help with the study of black holes and other unexplained phenomena.

The array has been put into hibernation mode – a safe mode. The equipment is unavailable for normal observations but they’re still up and running for “special” observations.

If they’re still up and running for ‘SPECIAL’ observations it might be possible, SETI ATA receiving some signal or other unexplained phenomena.

A Signal?

No one knows for sure what caused this signal. There is a slight possibility that it just might originate from an extraterrestrial intelligence. The bright colors on the blue background indicate that an anomalous signal was received here on Earth by a radio telescope involved in a Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). A search for these signals is ongoing by several groups including volunteer members of the SETI League. Time labels the vertical axis of the above plot, and frequency marks the horizontal axis. Although this strong signal was never positively identified, astronomers have identified in it many attributes characteristic of a more mundane and ultimately terrestrial origin. In this case, a leading possibility is that the signal originates from an unusual modulation between a GPS satellite and an unidentified Earth-based source. Many unusual signals from space remain unidentified. No signal has yet been strong enough or run long enough to be unambiguously identified as originating from an extraterrestrial intelligence.

We wonder why SETI shuts down a few days after the NSA reveal that we have received messages already, it seems unlikely that only the lack of funds led to the sudden shutdown, ( f.e. the U.S. Air Force is interested in using the array to help track space debris)  is it that the government has taken control and they don’t want anyone else hearing the signal from ET or maybe a signal from an approaching object?

  2. They need only 1,5milj. I think it’s really not because they don’t have money!

  3. I do find it a bit odd, as the cost of running SETI is not exactly back breaking is it. I am not saying there is a big conspiracy, but certain things happening in the world at present, do seem to point to something to happen sooner or later.

  4. I agree. The cost of continuing the operation of SETI is miniscule when compared to other things the U.S. government completely wastes money on. As a small example, the complete waste of time of an Afghan War costs the U.S. $300 million PER DAY! I mean damn, the “non-war” in Libya is costing the U.S. between a paltry $4 million and $36 million per day. At $2.5 million per year, the operation should be able to be funded continuously by interested philanthropists, or a government that actually wants to benefit their citizens instead of just taking their tax dollars for the insatiable global war machine. I mean, where is Paul Allen now? He is only one of the richest men in the world with a net worth of only $13 billion dollars. He also owns two professional sports teams, the Seattle Seahawks and the Portland Trailblazers. I think he could afford to continue the operation of SETI and the antenna array that carries his name on his own without any other help. Check out his yacht…..

    That being said, I have thought SETI is a disinformation campaign for many years. When SETI@home first began I jumped on the bandwagon and let them use my PC for crunching their data sets. I believed this was a small way that little old me could help contribute to the most incredible discovery in the history of mankind. However, after hearing interviews with various members of SETI, and SETI@home, I do not believe that they are using this program for the benefit of mankind, just the benefit of the government. Not only do I believe that they already have conclusive proof of extraterrestrial radio transmissions, but they also have no interest in disclosing this information to the public. I have heard several interviews with senior SETI members where they specifically said if they do find an extraterrestrial radio signal they will not be able to disclose the information to the public anyway, even though they previously said they would let the public know. This is because that information would be considered a “national security issue”, which seems to be another one of the excuses the government makes now concerning things they do not want to disclose to the public. Anything considered a national security issue is automatically compartmentalized and ordered a security clearance. Since SETI is a sham, the best evidence we currently have is the documents that have been quietly released by the FBI, NSA, and KGB regarding alien encounters and extraterrestrials. Needless to say, I do not waste my PC time and energy (literally) on the SETI@home program anymore. There are many other distributed computing projects that will actually benefit mankind since senior SETI members and the government already know that extraterrestrials exist, and have already made contact.

    We are about to be visited by the ones that brought us here. The sad thing is that they come to teach us are final lessons. How to live in peace in harmony with existence and how to use technolgy only as a tool of peace and to do away with are lust for more and to be happy with little and we wil receive there message with barrels raising and bullets blazing starting the biblical war between the forces of good and evil. The serpeant has twisted are minds. He has given the elit power in return they keep humanity seperated and at war with one another. They fear to lose there power hence they keep us mis informed. They will say it is an invasion. The wicked shall perish and the righteous prosper in the wake of his second coming
