You can use your DNA to explore your genetic health – but are you ready for what you might find when your genome is sequenced? Plus, practitioners of DIY brain stimulation who use a battery and electrode kits. And, how scientists diagnosed arthritis in a 70 million-year old dinosaur. Ouch.
It’s near the end of summertime, and the livin’ is easy. However, SETI Institute scientists are still keeping busy. They continue to unravel more puzzles about our local celestial neighbors, as well as other worlds many light-years away. Every day, researchers at the SETI Institute are expanding both our knowledge and understanding in the quest to find life beyond Earth.
The night sky, at least when you can see it, appears placid, serene and as inviting as a cold brew on a muggy afternoon.
Don’t be fooled. The real universe is a nasty mélange of stuff that’s mostly scorching hot or bitterly cold. The blackness of space is shot through with lethal particles and radiation. Without doubt, the “final frontier,” often depicted as a beguiling playground for our Spandex-attired descendants, is deceptively treacherous.
Your support during the Campaign for SETI will sustain critical optical and radio SETI research projects and allow us to continue innovating in our quest for extraterrestrial signals.
