Slashdot | Is SETI a Security Risk?

Slashdot | Is SETI a Security Risk?: “Richard Carrigan, a particle physicist at the US Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois, fears the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) may be putting the earth at risk. As reported in the Guardian, Carrigan frets that alien radio signals could pose a security risk. The report cites a 2003 paper entitled ‘Do potential Seti signals need to be decontaminated?'”

Unless the aliens look like Jeff Goldblum with a G3 Powerbook I think we’re safe. They do? DON’T LET THAT SHIP DOCK! *sigh* Too late. Where’s my electronic thumb?
