Today on Far Future Horizons we present Modern Marvels ~ ET Tech which explores the technologies used in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) and Astrobiology. 

Spirit Landing on Mars

These technologies have taken us to the planet Mars to sift its sands for life. And, have also led to development of sophisticated radio telescopes that help us sieve through the cosmic radio noise for signs of intelligent civilizations that share this awesome Cosmos with us.

Spirit Rover on Mars

In 2003, when Mars was closer to Earth than it had been in 60,000 years, scientists launched three life-seeking planetary landers. NASA's Spirit and Opportunity and the European Space Agency's failed Beagle 2 mission represent the pinnacle technologies in the current search for extraterrestrial life. And, the current generation of space based telescopes such as Kepler and its descents will shed light on the number of worlds in our galaxy that may indeed harbour life and extraterrestrial civilizations.
