SETI have managed to raise enough money to restart the telescope needed to continue searching for ET.
Back in April SETI were forced to halt the project due to lack of funding, but now the institute has succeeded in raising the $200,000 needed to get the Allen Telescope Array back in action and is ready to continue the search for alien life.
The institute was forced to put the hunt on hold in April, after cash-strapped governments decided they could no longer afford to pay the interstellar phone bill. To raise the required money, SETI turned to crowdsourcing: It unveiled the SETIStars. org website in June and independently raised the $204,129 needed to restart the Allen Telescope Array.
