For Immediate Release, Please

LITTLE FERRY, NJ.., 1 May, 1999 -- SETI League executive director Dr. H. Paul Shuch, popularly known as Dr. SETI, is traveling to British Columbia, Canada this month to help launch a new exhibit at Science World, 1455 Quebec Street, Vancouver BC V6A 3Z7. His 18 May 1999 presentation "Searching for Life Among the Stars" will kick off The Why Files, Science World's summer exhibit exploring the fact and fantasy behind our fascination with extra-terrestrial life.

"Science World is pleased to present both a speculative exhibition about the investigation of the unknown and mysterious, and Dr. Shuch's factual presentation on how science is searching for evidence of other civilizations," states Dr. Sandra Eix, the curator of The Why Files.

In addition to various activities scheduled exclusively for the science centre's members, Science World will host a regional SETI League meeting from 7 to 9 PM on 17 May 1999. Planned primarily for SETI League members and their guests, this meeting is also open to all interested print, web, and broadcast journalists. Additionally, Dr. Shuch will be available for press interviews throughout the 17th and 18th of May . Media contacts are being coordinated by Gillian Lunde, Science World's Manager for Marketing and Communications. She can be reached by telephone at (604) 443-7470, or by email to

SETI scientists seek to determine through microwave and optical measurements whether humankind is alone in the universe. Since Congress terminated NASA's SETI funding in 1993, The SETI League and other scientific groups have been attempting to privatize the research. Experimenters interested in participating in the search for intelligent alien life, or citizens wishing to help support it, should email to join_at_setileague_dot_org, check the SETI League Web site at, send a fax to +1 (201) 641-1771, or contact The SETI League, Inc. membership hotline at +1 (800) TAU-SETI. Be sure to provide us with a postal address to which we will mail further information. The SETI League, Inc. is a membership-supported, non-profit [501(c)(3)], educational and scientific corporation dedicated to the electromagnetic Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.

P.S. Tearsheets are always appreciated. Thank you.
