"I don't keep a Top 40 list of SETI questions, but if I did, this one would be perennially on the charts: "could our experiments pick up Earth?" - Seth Shostak

Read the rest of Seth's latest article at the SETI Institute's website. It can also be found at SPACE.com.

Thanks for the link navyvet.

This makes the Kepler probe even more interesting because of its ability to look at 100k stars all at once, with the probability of discovering hundreds of Earth-sized stars.

If/Once we do, perhaps Seti should be pointing its telescopes straight at these?
