PUBLIC APPEAL BY ARTHUR C. CLARKE FOR RESTORATION OF NASA's HRMS SETI PROJECT The following message was faxed to me today by Arthur C. Clarke from his home in Sri Lanka. This is in response to our recent communications concerning the launch of an international public appeal to restore funding for NASA's High Resolution Microwave Survey (HRMS) SETI Project. Arthur has given me permission to reproduce his message to The British Interplanetary Society: 27th October 1993. The Executive Secretary The British Interplanetary Society London. I am deeply distressed to learn that the work of the S.E.T.I. Institute is no longer to be funded by the United States Government. One of the most important of all philosophical questions is whether there are other intelligent lifeforms in the universe with whom we may one day make contact. The work of the S.E.T.I. Institute is far too important to be allowed to drop, but as it is for the benefit of every country in the world, we should all support it in any way we can. I would therefore suggest that the British Interplanetary Society should lead the support from this country, and am arranging for a cheque to be forwarded to you for this purpose. Yours faithfully, Arthur C. Clarke, C.B.E. October 29, 1993 File: CLARKE1.TXT * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Dr. Stuart A.
