I hope you can take a moment to watch my video (http://buff.ly/2ifIEAn
), because our search for extraterrestrial life is not just another research project, but one of the most profound voyages of discovery ever undertaken.
Today, you can make a huge impact on this work. After seeing the overwhelming success of our $50,000 match, another generous SETI Institute Trustee has issued a new challenge to SETI supporters. For these last days of the year, help raise an additional $20,000 and it will be DOUBLED!
Of course, some think that curiosity, and the exploration it inspires, are frivolous. With all the problems in the world, why bother? But history tells us that such an attitude is myopic. Any society with lasting power does these things.
I believe exploration and curiosity are what define us as a society, and I know they motivate all of us here at The SETI Institute. "Are we alone in the universe?" is more than just a tag line for our research; it's a question that, finally, we could answer.
Every donation will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to an additional $20,000. Your gift will go twice as far to support the work and outreach of our 80 world-class, multidisciplinary scientists. Give here today: http://buff.ly/2ifEVTm
