The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) In this photograph, taken in the direction of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, there are, very roughly, a million stars. Optimistic estimates on the abundance of galactic civilizations suggest that a million stars must be examined before we have a fair chance of detecting an alien signal. This is one reason that serious SETI programs require substantial commitments of time. David L.
