SETI: August 2016

While we await with interest a formal write-up of the RATAN-600 result, the claim that the detection could be a signal from an extraterrestrial civilization has attracted much media interest.

A spectral line image cube generated from 115 minutes of MWA data that covers a field of view of 400 sq. deg. around the Galactic Centre is used to perform the first Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (SETI) with the Murchison Widefield Array.

We report radio SETI observations on a large number of known exoplanets and other nearby star systems using the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) for about 19000 hours from May 2009 to Dec 2015.
