Hopefully we’ll get to find something soon as SETI has been running for decades.

While FAST did join SETI last year, it’s primary goal is not to find life. One of their primary objectives is the study of pulsars. But, when the are studying a star, they can research many things at the same time. The data they receive can tell us a basic composition of the star and whether or not there is/was advanced life. Radio telescopes won’t tell us if a planet is habitable or if there is non advanced life.


Articles that quote science fiction authors or the “Atlantic” might not be the most reputable sources. Newser is a website I can’t stand, all they care about are the number of views they get.
