canada goose solde Q about the ATA shutdown canada goose solde

canada goose outlet france The news that the Allen Telescope Array has gone into “hibernation” due to lack of funds was broken by Scientific American. We’ve known that this was a possibility for quite a while, but are sorry to see it happen. canada goose outlet france

Q. It really doesn’t. We also don’t currently receive any funding from the SETI Institute, and are not affected by their budget.

canada goose femme Q. Why has the ATA closed? canada goose femme

canada goose homme A. The ATA has gone into hibernation due to lack of funding. ATA requires about $1.5M/yr for operations and an additional $1M/yr to support the SETI Institute’s science programs. $2.5M/yr sounds like a lot, but the cost of one F/A 18 jet could fully fund that for 23.5 years. canada goose homme

Q. What do you mean by “hibernation”?

A. Hibernation is in between operational and fully shut down. In hibernation some systems necessary to keep the telescope healthy are still powered on. In a full shutdown, critical components would be removed from the telescope and put into storage to prevent damage. That would make restarting expensive. But keeping systems powered during hibernation is also expensive. I’m sure the answer to the first two is “yes.” But the NSF and NASA have spent their money Doudoune Canada Goose on new instruments and/or telescope arrays and are getting squeezed in other areas. The billionaires? I have no way of knowing. I know that I would have no way of getting in contact with any of them.

fausse canada goose pas cher Q. Why don’t you pool your resources with the SETI Institute’s in order to save the telescope? fausse canada goose pas cher

A. We don’t have that kind of money.

canada goose outlet Q. If you personally had the money to keep it operating, would you donate it? canada goose outlet

A. Probably not. As envisioned, the 350 telescope ATA would have been a great instrument for SETI. But as it exists now, the 42 telescope ATA is less sensitive to SETI signals than Arecibo and takes longer to survey the same amount of sky. That doesn’t mean it’s inappropriate for anyone’s research, it just doesn’t fit the bill for mine.

canada goose site officiel The expansion to 350 telescopes will take much more money than the I will ever have known anyone who knows anyone who has. It may even approach the cost of that F/A 18. I’d love to see it happen, but I’m understandably pessimistic. If I were a billionaire and had 60 million burning a hole in my pocket, then I might fund the expansion. Assuming I didn’t blow it all on ninja supermodel robots first. canada goose site officiel

Doudoune Canada Goose Pas Cher Q. Will this be the end of the SETI Institute? Doudoune Canada Goose Pas Cher

A. Not by a long shot. Remember the start of the SETI Institute what caused by the www.canadagoosefemmeprix.fr cancellation of all federal SETI funding. If the ATA closes down, I think the SETI Institute will just concentrate on making instrumentation that they can use on other telescopes. I am sure they have information on their website, but at a quick glance, I could not find immediately find anything on their homepage, though I admit I didn’t spend a good deal of time sifting through all their pages.”By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible”.

Should read the articles first, but this comes to mind, ; ).

That era is called the “epoch of reionization” because those stars ionized nearly all of the hydrogen in Doudoune Canada Goose Pas Cher the universe. Canada Goose Homme Solde

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. In the mountains of Northern California, a field Doudoune Canada Goose of radio dishes that look like giant dinner plates waited for years for the first call from intelligent life among the stars.

But they’re not listening anymore.

canada goose pas cher Cash strapped governments, it seems, can no longer pay the interstellar phone bill. canada goose pas cher

Astronomers at the SETI Institute said a steep drop in state and federal funds has forced the shutdown of the Canada Goose Pas Cher Allen Telescope Array, a powerful tool in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, an effort scientists refer to as “SETI.”

The 42 radio dishes had scanned deep space since 2007 for signals from alien civilizations while also conducting hard scientific research into the structure and origin of the universe.

SETI chief executive Tom Pierson said in an email to donors last week that the University of California, Berkeley, has run out of money for day to day operation of the dishes.
