Submission + - SETI Shuts Down Allen Array (seti.org)

Crash24 writes: Due to budget cuts, the Allen Radiotelescope Array is ceasing operaions in Hat Creek, CA. In a letter sent to donors by SETI's CEO Tom Pierson, he explains "Effective this week, the ATA has been placed into hibernation due to funding shortfalls for operations of the Hat Creek Radio Observatory (HCRO) where the ATA is located."
All hope is not lost, however; SETI is currently exploring lending the array to Air Force Space Command to help track orbital space debris.

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
