Search for extra-terrestrial intelligence. Artwork of a radio dish antenna pointing up towards our galaxy, the Milky Way. An alien planet is seen above and to the right of the dish, with patterns of artificial lights on its night side. This represents the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) project set up by NASA, involving the Arecibo and 34-metre Goldstone antennae scanning the sky for radio signals from extra- terrestrial civilisations. The project was cancelled due to funding difficulties at NASA, yet part of it continues under the name Project Phoenix. The search has yet to find evidence of alien intelligence.
