The search to prove if "life exists beyond earth" was heralded by Internet investor Yuri Milner, physicist Stephen Hawking, cosmologist and astrophysicist Martin Rees, SETI research pioneer Frank Drake, co-founder and CEO of Cosmos Studios Ann Druyan, and UC Berkeley astronomy professor Geoff Marcy

Russian internet entrepreneur Yuri Milner has offered $100 million over the next 10-years to detect signals from other technological civilizations in the universe whilst developing new digital signal processing technology to monitor 10 billion radio frequencies simultaneousl based on field-programmable gate arrays—a type of reconfigurable computer chip—and graphical processing units (GPUs) to crunch the 10 gigabytes of data per second

The two initiatives launched today include

  1. Breakthrough Listen, will be the most powerful search ever taken for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth. The project will survey the 1 million stars in the Milky Way closest to Earth, as well as the 100 closest galaxies.
  2. Breakthrough Message, will fund an international competition to determine the content of messages sent from humanity to alien civilizations.
