Ao que parece, a crise norte-americana começa a dar os primeiro sinais de recuperação. Os indicadores econômicos, apesar de timidamente, demonstram uma retomada que pode ajudar a garantir a reeleição do presidente Obama.
E é nesta onda que o SETI Institute conseguiu novo financiamento para voltar a operar os radiotelescópios do ATA (Allen Telescope Array) no Radio-observatório Hat Creek. Doações de grandes empresas, da Força Aérea dos EUA e do público em geral possibilitaram a volta, no final do ano passado, das atividades dos radiotelescópios que estavam hibernando desde abril. A volta das contribuições das empresas é sinal claro de uma recuperação. A Força Aérea utiliza os equipamentos de modo estratégico na prevenção de colisões de seus satélites com lixo espacial. Para complementar, o instituto conseguiu atrair o público através de uma campanha de doações, na qual qualquer pessoa pode contribuir exclusivamente para ajudar os custos de operação do ATA.
A notícia da suspensão das principais atividades do ATA no ano passado pegou muita gente de surpresa, principalmente quando o crescente aumento do número de planetas extrassolares descobertos direcionava as observações. Pela primeira vez, os cientistas do instituto podiam observar uma estrela sabendo que nela havia planetas ao redor.
A retomada dos trabalhos dos radiotelescópios aliado às descobertas de planetas extrassolares que pertencem à zona de habitabilidade da estrela, ou seja, podem ter água no estado líquido e abrigar algum tipo de vida, deu novo impulso aos pesquisadores do SETI Institute.
Mas ainda restam incertezas no ar; a dependência de recursos externos não garante o futuro das observações. Talvez, com a possibilidade de encontrar algum tipo de transmissão extraterrestre, tenha ficado mais fácil assegurar esses recursos, e o que não falta entre nós são pessoas que se fascinam com o tema.
Sejam bem-vindos de volta os telescópios que procuram pela verdade que está lá fora!
I hurried into the local department store Learnguidepdf to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself. I would Cisco APP WebEx Meetings be in here forever and I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just Cisco APP WebEx Meetings sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through all Itexamplan the people to the toy department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to 70-483 Dumps myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids would even Cisco APP WebEx Meetings play whit4 them. 300-320 dumps Learnguidepdf I found Learnguidepdf myself in the doll aisle5. Out 300-320 dumps of Itexamplan the corner of my eye I saw a little boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and he held her so gently. I Learnguidepdf could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over at the little boy and wondered who the doll was for. Itexamplan I watched him turn to Cisco APP WebEx Meetings a woman and 70-483 Dumps he called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I don’t have enough money?” Learnguidepdf She 300-320 dumps replied a bit impatiently, “You 70-483 Dumps know that you Itexamplan don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and would be back in 300-320 dumps a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy Itexamplan continued to hold the doll. After Cisco APP WebEx Meetings a bit I asked the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll 70-483 Dumps my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him that Itexamplan Cisco APP WebEx Meetings maybe Santa 70-483 Dumps was going to bring it . He said, “No, Itexamplan Santa can’t go where my sister 70-483 Dumps is…. I have 300-320 dumps to give 300-320 dumps the doll to my Mama to take Cisco APP WebEx Meetings to her. “I asked him where his siter Itexamplan was. He looked at me with the saddest eyes and said, “She was Itexamplan gone to be with Jesus.
My 300-320 dumps Daddy says that Mamma is going to have to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go Cisco APP WebEx Meetings yet. 300-320 dumps I told him to Cisco APP WebEx Meetings tell her to Cisco APP WebEx Meetings wait 70-483 Dumps till I got Cisco APP WebEx Meetings back from the Itexamplan store.” Then he asked me if 70-483 Dumps i wanted to see his picture. 70-483 Dumps I told him I’d love to. He pulled Itexamplan out some 300-320 dumps picture he’d had taken at the front of the store. He said, “I 300-320 dumps want my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so very much and I wish she 300-320 dumps dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she will 300-320 dumps need to be with my sister.” I saw Learnguidepdf that the little boy had lowered his 70-483 Dumps head and 70-483 Dumps had grown so qiuet. While he was 300-320 dumps not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a Learnguidepdf handful of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we 70-483 Dumps count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has Learnguidepdf to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his Cisco APP WebEx Meetings and Learnguidepdf we began to count it . Of Learnguidepdf Itexamplan course it was plenty for the 300-320 dumps doll. He softly said, “Thank you Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, 70-483 Dumps “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her to give my sister. Itexamplan And he Learnguidepdf heard my prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me enough to buy 70-483 Dumps the doll and a 70-483 Dumps rose for my Mama. Cisco APP WebEx Meetings She loves white rose so much. “In Itexamplan a few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my shoppong in Learnguidepdf a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a Learnguidepdf drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a little girl and the Mother was in serious condition. The family was 300-320 dumps deciding on whether Itexamplan to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not belong Cisco APP WebEx Meetings with that story.Two days later I read 300-320 dumps in the paper where the family had disconnected the life support and Learnguidepdf the young woman had died. I could not forget the little boy and just kept wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later that day, I could not help myself and I went Learnguidepdf out and bought aome white roses Cisco APP WebEx Meetings and took them to the funeral Learnguidepdf home where Cisco APP WebEx Meetings 70-483 Dumps the yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy Itexamplan had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.
