Emily Dawn Calandrelli
Emily has written a killer article on the renewed and privately funded research to look for signs of intelligent life out across the universe in an excellent article Understanding The $100 Million Search For Intelligent Alien Life.
Emily does a great job giving a summary of the status of SETI programs currently operating and the phenomenal new grant from a billionaire investor who is funding a new state of the art research project called Breakthrough Listen!
