The SETI Institute is a not-for-profit research organization tasked with the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Founded by Tom Pierson and Jill Tarter, the SETI Institute has grown to house approximately 100 scientists, as well as specialists in administration, education, and outreach. We featured it as part of our We Can Do It campaign, which was curated by the award-winning artist Nelly ben Hayoun, and featured ambitious and groundbreaking creatives.

“If we could change the way people around the world thought about who they are and how they fit in… we could do a lot of creative things in terms of solving the problems and reducing the tensions among nations and among individuals.”
