A new venture to scan the skies for alien life just got Stephen Hawking’s backing.

At the Royal Society in London today, the famed physicist and Russian tech billionaire Yuri Milner announced the launch of a $100-million initiative to search for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth, BBC News reported. The initiative — part of the Breakthrough Initiatives group — is named Breakthrough Listen.

“With Breakthrough Listen, we’re committed to bringing the Silicon Valley approach to the search for intelligent life in the universe,” Milner said in a written statement. “Our approach to data will be open and taking advantage of the problem-solving power of social networks.”

The 10-year project involves detecting and analyzing several billion radio frequencies with sensitive telescopes and advanced computing technologies, Reuters reported. Scientists say the fact that humans use radio signals means other intelligent life may use them as well.

Other scientists endorsed the initiative, including Dr. Seth Shostak, senior astronomer and director of the Center for SETI Research in Mountain View, Calif.

“This is by far the most ambitious step forward for SETI research since the cancellation of the NASA SETI program in 1993,” Shostak told The Huffington Post in an email. “It will have the benefit of financial stability and long-term effort — precisely what’s been absent for the past two decades. My hope is that this foundation will also wish to include the efforts of the SETI Institute.”

Milner said the search will be transparent and will rely on open-source software so that its findings can be shared with space enthusiasts around the world.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
