The Search for ET ala NASA

NASA has just announced Carl Sagan Postdoctoral Fellowships in Exoplanet Exploration. This should speed up the discovery and identification of new planets throughout our galaxy. And in the spirit of Sagan, the search for extraterrestrial life will undoubtedly remain a critical driver in the development of newer and better techniques and technologies to help study our heavens.

I wonder how humanity might react as we encounter deep space signatures of something very much like Earth.
