The truth is out there: UK professor Robert Lodder
leads group in search for extraterrestrial life

By Ashley York


[TK Pharmacy associ-
ate professor Robert Lod
der spends his spare titne
on a peculiar hobby re
searching the possibilities
of the "little green men”
in outer space. Along with
several associates and vol
unteers. Lodder works on
an international project to
Search for Extra'l‘errestri
a1 Intelligence (SETI).

“This is something i
wanted to do in college. i
had the opportunity when
we moved in the .\S'I‘e(‘(‘

funding from l'K. l.odder
and his grotip began the
project over a year ago.
and continue to study and
research it everyday.
Along with hoping to find
extraterrestrial life. l.od
der hopes to persuade the
University to do two
things: one. begin a class
that would teach the sub-
ject. and two. convince
them to allow a huge .satel

lite to be placed on top of

the AS’l‘et‘(‘ building.

The group at [’K is
only one of the Slit stations
of SETI. which exist in 17
countries. The
their satellites are in
America and west Europe.
but they all work together
on Project Argus (a sky
survey to monitor the sky

for signals of intelligent

group perform
research with
a National

bulk ot‘

Institute of Health. which
supplies grants for the
SE'I‘l project.

Lodder said the fund
ing allows the SET! pro-
ject to search for other

planets that could support

roachesl that lives in otlir

atid for signals that might
be generated by other in
telligent life forms.

"The assumption is
that there are other intel-
ligent civilizations search
ing for intelligent ex
traterrestrial life. You
could imagine that these
are very hard to tind."
Lothh‘t‘ said.

l.odder‘.s explanation
of SETI seems like rocket

science. litlt the goal of

their research

"The goal is to answer
the question 'Are we on
earth the only intelligent
lite forms in the galaxy?" a
question that consumes
human kind." l.odder
said "it is only within the
late goth century that our
technology has begun to
improve to the point
where we can seek scienr
titic evidence to help an»
syver this ‘ageold' ques

Through continued
research. l.odder and his
associates hope to unveil
or at least contribute to
the answers of the in—
evitably asked questions.
‘ls there a (lod?' and ”Are
we the only intelligent life
forms on earth'."

“Science is silent on
this poitit (‘Is there a

hypothesis about the exis-
tence of God requires us
to create an experimental
universe in which there is
a tiod. and a control uni
verse in which there is
not." he said. "This qnes
tion will not be detinitive
ly answered by science
anytime soon.“

Even though they
haven't totmd the answer
to mind-boggling ques~
tioiis. l.odder and his
group have accomplished
seeing the noise and inter
l‘erence that every other
SE'l‘l project has seen.

'l‘lit‘ Sl'l'l‘l projects
also discovered that other

planets exist outside ot‘

our solar system. and
though previously con
ceived as impossible. that
lite has been found to ex
ist in unconvcnttonal con~

As they continue to
search for extraterrestrial
lite. laidder intends to
cotitiiiuc working on the
SETI project until contact
with extraterrestrial life
is made.

"Project Argos is cur
rently scheduled to run
until contact is made. 1 ex-
pect that we will remain
with the project until
then," he said. “This is an
important probletti. but to
big for the government to
handle it is perfect for the
University and public be-
cause they don't just get
bored and walk away."

liodder encourages
students. stall and faculty
members to get involved
with the SET] project

“it helps if you know
a little about it. but we
welcome everyone." he

Lodder is not alone in his fasci-
nation with the unknown. For
years, Hollywood has been capti-
vated with the idea of extrater-
restrial life, such as the Steven
Spielbergs's E.T.

Gone In Sixty Seconds

One night to steal fifty cars makes this movie action packed and
intense. Nicholas Cage stars as a retired car thief who must unexpectedly
return to his roots to save his brother's (Giovanni Ribisi) life. Despite
some cheese ball effects and unbelievable scenes, this movie provides a
great cast, including Robert Duvall and Angelina Jolie, beautiful cars and
Cage's typical wacked-out humor. Gone in 60 Seconds is fun, entertaining
and satisfying.

Grade B.


Samuel Jackson stars in a remake of the 1971 classic private detective film
Shaft. The story centers around Shaft and his attempt to protect a murder
witness named Diane (Toni Collette) from the murderer Walter Williams
(Christian Bale). Actor Jeffrey Wright turns in a decent performance as the
head of a drug ring that is close to par with AI Pacino's Scarface. The best
thing about the original was the hit song by Issac Hayes. That goes the
same way here.

Grade: B+

Boys and Girls

When Harry Met Sal/y....ah, Boys and Girls that is, tells us that sex
changes everything as Claire Forlani and Freddie Prinze Jr. as Jenny and
Ryan, two kids who keep running into each other throughout their lives,
show this to be true. But, didn't we already learn that from Billy Crystal
and Meg Ryan? While there are funny scenes with Jason Biggs playing his
normal role as the guy who struggles with women characters lack the
chemistry that warms our hearts.
