SETI Suspends Search for Alien Life Due to Lack of Funding

The SETI Institute, that nifty organization that searches for extra-terrestrial life, claims that due to government cutbacks, it does not have the funds to sustain the search for alien life anymore, dooming Earthlings to find out about an alien invasion once we’re already enslaved.

On top of this suspension of SETI’s search for alien life, the large field of radio dishes that SETI used to search for signals will be going into hibernation. Sad day for people who were hoping intelligent alien life would be discovered in their lifetime, at least, the kind of discovery that doesn’t involve us being invaded.
