    I'm meta-agnostic. After all, meta-mucil can keep you nice and regular.

    It would depend what is the meta with you.

    Rather few exoplanets within 100 ly of earth would see us transit the sun. If they did see a transit they might be tempted to give us a radio- listen and that's about the limiting distance.

    We know we're very new at this game and as such are likely making wildly inaccurate assumptions. In fact it's off the scale how wrong we probably are about almost everything.

    Consider radio for example. We've had it barely more than a century and yet that's the nail we hammer when considering communication with putative aliens who may have developed technology for billions of years.

    True - but in this case the issue was whether +they+ could detect +us+ - and the 100 ly is a pretty hard limit unless they have retroactively superluminal detection technology.

    I suspect they would have been going to have been having it

    Aren't kickbacks illegal?

    Little Jeffy is just seeking approval. What a whiner. He could just buy NASA or start his own space agency. He has enough money to fund it for ten years.

    That's not the only one. He spent over a half $million lobbying Cantwell too. She acquiesced but the Washington state House quashed it.
