Support the Quest
The SETI Institute needs your help to help raise $80,000 to fund the search for life on Mars.
In addition to research and field expeditions in some of Earth's most extreme environments, the SETI Institute is a leading force in the development of new search methodologies. Our scientists are uniquely qualified. They analyze data and geological samples to understand the environment on Mars and identify signs of life.
If you share our excitement about the importance of this work, please make a gift of $50, $100, $250 or more to help fund this Mars astrobiology project. We can't do this without you.
Help Establish Stable Funding for SETI
You can make a difference!
“SETI research experiments are funded by private donations, limiting how quickly we can search these newly discovered planets for intelligent life,” said Jill Tarter. “The best reason to support SETI research is because it is an investment in our own future. The scientist Phil Morrison said that ‘SETI is the archeology of the future.’ Think about it. If we detect a signal, we could learn about THEIR past (because of the time their signal took to reach us) and the possibility of OUR future.
