This is excellent news! Giving the quest of SETI a more permanent home here in Mountain View is at the core of what Silicon Valley has always been about.

A complete, absolute, total waste of time and money. If there is any "body" out there, we are never going to find them. They are too awesomely rare and too awesomely far away.
