The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has announced that it is back in business checking out the new habitable exoplanets recently discovered by NASA's Kepler space telescope to see if they might be home to alien civilisations.The cash needed to restart SETI's efforts has come in part from the US Air Force Space Command, who are interested in using the organisation's detection instruments for "space situational awareness".

Ah, U.S. Starfleet Command- I mean Space Command is now funding SETI, is it. Well, I'm sure that'll reassure the Aliens that we have a purely peaceful interest in establishing contact with our extraterrestrial friends.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

What if we find aliens but they are no more advanced then sheep? Should we still spend trillions of $'s to send probes to capture some?

We now have a space command concerned with "space situational awareness" ?

Awesome! Seems a step up. I wonder how one gets a job there?

I do like The Register.

Isn't it also about time that we go and mutilate some alien cows? As long as we are absolutely sure that they aren't the dominant species, incredibly intelligent and sitting on a huge war chest full of advanced weapons of rather destructive character - that would be a bummer :P

Sounds pretty risky, what if they have alien mad cow desease and money. I`m sure some could buy there out of anything and they start to mingel with the likes of Rosie Odoniel (sp) and Donald trump. That would be the end of mankind forsure  :alien:

OK, that was a rather horrible scenario you just managed to depict there. :P

Just so they don't 'mingle' the genetics of Rosie O'Donell and Donald Trump. There's a hybrid lifeform capable of destroying the Earth for sure!
