It only costs 1.5 mil a year. Austerity kills.

SETI forced to shut down search for alien life | The Raw Story:
"Operating the telescope array costs about $1.5 million a year, according to The Associated Press.

SETI has other telescope arrays at its disposal, but the Allen Telescope Array is the biggest and, unlike other facilities, is dedicated to the institute's operations.

The shutdown comes after NASA announced that its space telescope Kepler had discovered 1,235 new possible planets, some of which were in the 'habitable zone,' where liquid water could exist.

'There is a huge irony that a time when we discover so many planets to look at, we don't have the operating funds to listen,' SETI Director Jill Tarter told Mercury News."

Sure. Why not.

Read the article. Mission hipster puking at the hallowed hipster park doesn't rate high on news of interest. More like 'just another Wednesday'.

And, yes, food trucks do rule!
