Event description

Description

Speaker: Eliot Gillum, Microsoft and SETI Institute

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence is a blind search across many dimensions—space and time being the most obvious. Every good SETI researcher does their very best to make the minimal reasonable assumptions, but time and resources are always limited, so various strategic optimizations have been adopted. A potentially more effective approach is to simply cover as much of the search space as possible. The SETI Institute has made this the starting point of their ambitious and groundbreaking idea to survey the entire night sky, all night, every night at optical wavelengths. This talk will further detail the motivation and planned operation of this new instrument, a panoptic eye for interstellar laser pulses.
