“Imagine,” says Jill Tarter, director of the Center for SETI Research at the SETI Institute and one of the stalwarts in the field, “that you didn’t know whether there were any fish in Earth’s oceans. So you go out and dip a single eight-ounce glass in the water. You might find one. But if the glass came up empty, I don’t think your first response would be ‘There are no fish.’”
