    The Public Acclimation Program, which the U.S. Government has been running for years to get the public sort-of ready for official disclosure of UFO/Star Visitor reality, has activated a new tool for quick acknowledgment of Star Visitor reality, in case circumstances come up where the Government has to drop Official Denial.

Sweep starts for alien signals   

The new array will be used as part of a
dedicated survey of outer space [AP]

The largest ever survey for extra-terrestrial life has started after dozens of radio telescopes monitoring outer space were activated in the United States.
Forty-two radio dishes forming the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) in Hat Creek, about 430km north of San Francisco, started collecting scientific data on Thursday.

The dishes are being deployed to help advance radio astronomy, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (Seti) Institute and the University of California, Berkeley said in a statement.
"The ATA's technical capabilities exponentially increase our ability to search for intelligent signals, and may lead to the discovery of thinking beings elsewhere in the universe," said Seth Shostak, an astronomer at the Seti Institute in Mountain View, California.
"It is the first major telescope in the world built specifically for undertaking a search for extraterrestrial intelligence," he said.
Larger survey
The newly-launched array is part of a larger group of telescopes which will eventually reach 350 in number.
Shostak has compared the project to the 1997 US film Contact, in which Jodie Foster plays a scientist who monitors signals from a distant civilisation.
"The Allen Telescope Array will be like 200 million Jodie Fosters sitting out there listening," Shostak said.
The project is named after Paul G. Allen, Microsoft's co-founder, who donated funding in 2001.
Allen joined scientists from Seti and Berkeley on Thursday to launch the telescopes, which are able to monitor radio waves emitted by objects in space.
The readings from the telescopes will allow scientists to compose an impression of astronomical bodies at distances not possible by more conventional telescopes.
"They're like souped-up, old-style TV dishes that, gathered together using state-of-the-art electronics and computing, create a very powerful and flexible radio telescope," Allen told the Seattle Post Intelligencer.
"Seti is the long-shot of long shots, but we can also use this for regular radio astronomy."

Thus ye may find in thy mental and spiritual self, ye can make thyself just as happy or just as miserable as ye like. How miserable do ye want to be?......For you GROW to heaven, you don't GO to heaven. It is within thine own conscience that ye grow there.
