Over one thousand stars scanned for signals using Green Bank and Parkes Telescopes; Data released to the astronomical community. Breakthrough Listen strives to make as much data as possible available to the public, so that the astronomical community, deep learning experts, and anyone else so inclined can download and examine the results from its observations. It is the team’s hope that the data will be used for other kinds of astronomical investigations in addition to technosignature searches, and also that those with relevant expertise can help the program develop better and faster algorithms to detect and filter potential candidate signals.
