Ross 128? We're on it.

Listen investigates star after claim of possible signal.

There has been a lot of press attention in the last week to mysterious signals, seen by Prof. Abel Mendez at Arecibo Observatory, that appear to come from the direction of the star Ross 128. The Breakthrough Listen science team at UC Berkeley SETI Research Center observed the star on Sunday with the Listen instrument at the Green Bank Telescope. A memo describing the analysis of these observations is available at http://seti.berkeley.edu/ross128.pdf
