UK scientists are stepping up their efforts to search for alien life, forming the United Kingdom Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (UK SETI) Research Network. Academics from various British institutions have banded together to form a "small but active group of SETI researchers in the UK, who need a forum to discuss their work."
The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence needs your help, in a rather novel online concept called the 'SETI Live' program, allowing you to examine radio waves for alien activity.
The free-to-use service presents users from around the world with a series of radio frequency signals, which were gathered by the recently restarted Allen Telescope Array (ATA), that emanate from the Kepler field. They've picked this field in particular because it's gathered significant traction of attention recently, as a series of earth-like planets that could support life have been spotted there.
The Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI), has re-launched Allen Telescope Array operations in California in order to continue their search for alien life forms.
Due to a lack of funding the project was stopped in April; but public donations and a huge investment from the U.S. Air Force has meant they can continue their research. This comes at rather convenient timing, as NASA announced the discovery of 1,000 new potential life-supporting planets via its Kepler space telescope.
