Help The Seti Institute Find Extraterrestrial Intelligence


Recommended Posts

I've donated to the SETI Institute and I've processed well over 6 million work units for [email protected], which I also recommend as a donation recipient.

 

Will we find them before they find us? 

 

We just passed the 40th anniversary of the WOW! Signal, and while there's still a dispute, it was recently announced that they think it was caused by a pair of comets....

 

 

The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble, :phones:

Wow, 6 million work units, that's great!

 

I agree, we are probably not alone.

 

Keep up the good work.

On 20th November 1984 a new legal entity was born in California called the SETI Institute. Its roots were Project Cyclops: A Design Study for a System of Detecting Extra-terrestrial Intelligence in 1971. A project to search for artificially generated radio signals from a distance of up to 1,000 light-years.

SETI states ‘Our mission is to explore, understand, and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe, and to apply the knowledge gained to inspire and guide present and future generations. We have a passion for discovery, and for sharing knowledge as scientific ambassadors to the public, the press, and the government’.

There have been many reports from astronauts/cosmonauts of strange phenomena starting with Astronaut John Glenn’s ‘fireflies’ on 20th February 1962, but one of the most fascinating must be the Salyut-7 report that on 12th July 1984 Commander Leonid Kizim and Cosmonauts Vladmir Solovyov and Oleg Atkov found the Salyut- 7 completely bathed in a mesmerizing orange light. All 3 then witnessed something extraordinary over the next 10 minutes. They had arrived at the Salylut-7 space station (which had been vacant for over 2 months) on 8th February 1984 via the Soyuz T-10 spacecraft, (briefly joined by 3 additional cosmonauts on 3rd April 1984 via Soyuz T-11 who left 8 days later on 11th April 1984 via the original Soyuz T-10 docked spacecraft), so had been on Salyut-7 for 155 days – was fatigue a factor? On 17th July 1984 the Soyuz T-12 spacecraft with Commander Vladimir Dzhanibevok and Cosmonauts Svetlana Savitskaya and Igor Volk on-board, launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome (a spaceport located in an enclave of Russia within southern Kazakhstan) and docked with the Salyut-7 hours later. On 24th July 1984, a second encounter with the mesmerizing orange light/occurrence virtually identical to 12 days earlier was reported, not only by the original 3, but now the additional 3 fresh arrivals making a total of six cosmonauts witnessing something extraordinary. Was lack of oxygen a factor? As a side note, Cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya conducted a spacewalk (EVA -extravehicular activities) of almost 4 hours the following day (25th July 1984) and became the first ever woman to walk in space. On 29th July 1984 the Soyuz T-12 left the Salyut-7 with Commander Vladimir Dzhanibevok and Cosmonauts Svetlana Savitskaya and Igor Volk on-board landing safely back on Earth that day. Commander Leonid Kizim and Cosmonauts Vladimir Solovyov and Oleg Atkov remained on Salut-7 and finally left on 2 October 1984 via the Soyuz T-11 left at the Salut-7 space station, landing safely back on Earth that day, each totalling 237 days onboard Salyut-7. Both Commanders Leonid Kizim; Vladimir Dzhanibevok and Cosmonaut Vladmir Solovyov went into space again and Cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya would have, but space craft flights were cancelled due to engineering faults.  Allegedly the encounters were first made public in the late 1980’s but the earliest account I could find was in 2010:

Russia’s 2017 space film Salyut-7 is a historical drama said to be similar to Apollo13 and Gravity:

Has anyone got copies of the original 1980’s press reports?
