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.
