Apparently not. A four month intensive search for extraterrestrial life conducted by the California-based Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) has unearthed evidence of a whole lot of suburban life, but nothing that can be called alien communications. Using Australia's biggest telescope and multimillion-dollar scanning equipment, an international team tracked 28 million radio frequencies. But instead of overhearing a couple of aliens talking about which small farmtown to spook, SETI picked up the racket of microwave ovens, garage-door openers, mobile phones and orbiting satellites. The team will now resume the search from California. Bound to find something there.
