SETI Broadcast: The broadcast was particularly powerful because it used Arecibo’s megawatt transmitter attached to its 305 meter antenna. The latter concentrates the transmitter energy by beaming it into a very small patch of sky. The emission was equivalent to a 20 trillion watt omnidirectional broadcast (EIRP), and would be detectable by a SETI experiment just about anywhere in the galaxy, assuming a receiving antenna similar in size to Arecibo’s.

Tom Pierson, who founded the SETI Institute and went on to become its Chief Executive Officer for most of the organization’s first thirty years, died on February 20 of cancer. He had been on medical leave since 2012.

Carl Sagan, after suffering from myelodysplasia, and receiving three bone marrow transplants, died of pneumonia at the age of 62 at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centerin Seattle, Washington, on December 20, 1996.[97] He was buried at Lakeview Cemetery in Ithaca, New York.[98]

“Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises. Much pain, but still time . Believe there is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing. 0x07″
