The Breakthrough Foundation and Yuri Milner have entered into an agreement with CSIRO to use the Parkes Telescope to Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). The Breakthrough Listen program will be allocated 25% of Parkes observing time for five years from October 2016.
On Feb 29 an enthusiastic group from the Breakthrough Listen program arrived at Parkes for the initial discussions with scientists and engineers from CSIRO and Swinburne.
