SU just took a field trip to the SETI Institute, and were given an impropmptu talk on SETI by Dr. Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at SETI (who missed his first chance to hear Ray Kurzweil live to talk to us, as we had all already heard Ray several times). Fascinating talk, and seriously hilarious. I hope they publish the video of this talk on the SU network soon! I developed a greater respect for what they are doing and why they are doing it.
They only had four fridge magnet letters. I took the liberty of rearranging them on the way out.
