Meet the SETI Institute


The SETI Institute is an international center of excellence in research, education, and outreach for the exploration of planetary habitability, the signatures of life, and the evolution of intelligence. Our mission is to explore, understand, and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe and to apply the knowledge gained to inspire and guide present and future generations. We have a passion for exploration and discovery, and for sharing knowledge as scientific ambassadors to the public, the press, and the government.
