Dr. Anthony Beasley said there needs to be greater government support for the field of the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (Seti).

Bad idea honestly. If they are less technologically advanced than us then we probably won't be able to detect them. If they are more technologically advanced than us it would probably be a bad idea to draw attention to ourselves. The chances that an alien civilization is roughly equal to us technologically is extremely low. Common sense aside, it would be cool to have someone else to talk to and compare notes on the universe with.
