There are many ways to interact with the SETI Institute.

Join TeamSETI - As a non-profit organization, our search for life in the universe is not possible without public support, without you. Becoming a member of our Team means you are joining a growing global community that is proactively making the search for answers possible. This is humanity’s search and we cannot do it alone. Join TeamSETI today and ensure a future of remarkable discovery for us all.

Become a SETIstar - The ATA is a powerful group of linked radio telescopes that enable countless avenues of astronomical study, chief among them the search for evidence of extraterrestrial civilizations and insight into the nature of our cosmic origins. In the wake of a recent funding shortfall, however, this invaluable tool lies dormant and our vision of the universe around us has gone dark. With your help, we can change that.

Contribute to setiQuest - setiQuest is an effort to tap into the global brain trust, harness the power of citizen scientists, and educate the next generation of Earthlings to improve current searches for extraterrestrial intelligence and better understand our place in the cosmos. We are creating a community - or if you prefer, a tribe - to actively involve the world in the ultimate search for cosmic company. It is the concretization of Jill Tarter's 2009 TED wish to change the world.

Opine on EarthSpeaks - Welcome to Earth Speaks, a research project that explores a critical question in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI): “If we discover intelligent life beyond Earth, should we reply, and if so, what should we say?” People from around the world are invited to submit pictures, sounds, and text messages that they would want to send to other worlds. The project aims to foster a dialogue about what we should say to extraterrestrial intelligence, as well as whether or not we should be sending intentional messages.

SETILive - Calling all citizen scientists, SETILive is taking the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) directly to you by presenting radio frequency signals LIVE from the SETI Institute's Allen Telescope Array (ATA) while it's pointed at stars that, based on Kepler exoplanet discoveries, have the best chances of being home to an alien civilization.

Weekly Lectures - Attend a colloquium! They are FREE, open to the public and held from noon to 1pm, every Wednesday, expanding to evening talks at 7.30pm in 2011.

Big Picture Science - The weekly science radio program of the SETI Institute. Big Picture Science is a one-hour radio show and podcast that illuminates the origins, the behavior, and the future of life—and technology—on Earth by connecting ideas in surprising and humorous ways. What came before the Big Bang? How does the brain work? Will our descendants be human or machine? What’s the origin of humor? We ponder these questions daily… and expound on them weekly. But, wait! There’s more! Are you a doubting Thomas? Good. Join us as we separate science from pseudoscience – and facts from the phony – in Skeptic Check, our monthly episode devoted to critical thinking. Whether it’s astrology, Bigfoot, or just the incessant onslaught of UFOs, we take it all on, wielding the skeptical tools of solid science.

Books - Check books published by SETI Institute staff throughout the years. Examples include Confessions of an Alien Hunter by Seth Shostak, Project Cyclops with Frank Drake.
