Laser SETI will be the first ever all-sky-all-the-time SETI survey. Now, you can contribute to this project - and get answers to your questions from a Laser SETI scientist on Astronomy.com.

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, or SETI, has been seeking to improve our ability to intercept and identify intelligent signals from beyond our planet for decades. Now, Laser SETI represents another leap forward, with the ability to search the entire sky all the time for signals that might last just a fraction of a second. This ambitious but achievable project will use cost-effective camera systems at observatories positioned around the globe to put eyes on the sky 24/7. Laser SETI is still in its initial funding stages, and there’s still time to get behind this groundbreaking project. And now, you also have the opportunity to have your questions about Laser SETI and the SETI effort answered by a scientist working on the project.

Last month, Astronomy magazine featured a closer look at the Laser SETI project on our website. Now, we’re pleased to announce that next week, Astronomy.com will host a guest blog by Eliot Gillum, a Laser SETI project scientist and director of the Optical SETI program. And for that blog, we’re requesting questions from you about Laser SETI, Optical SETI, and the SETI effort. We’ll pick a few of the top questions we receive for Eliot to address on our Local Group blog.

If you have questions about Laser SETI and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, please leave them in our comments section below or email them to askastro@kalmbach.com by Tuesday, August 15.

Laser SETI’s crowdfunding project will continue through August 18. You can find out more about the project and how to become a contributor to the SETI effort on the Laser SETI Indiegogo campaign page.
