>Current Activity:
>1. The project "Search for Alien Artifacts on the Moon"
> (SAAM) is developed by the author since 1992. The
> justifications of Lunar SETI, the wording of specific principles
> of lunar archaeology and the search for promising areas on the
> Moon were the first stage of the project (1992-95). Already obtained
> results of lunar exploration show that the search for alien
> artifacts on the Moon is a promising SETI-strategy especially in
> context of the lunar colonization plans.
> The purpose of the second SAAM stage is the search for
> promising objects on the Moon for archaeological reconnaissance
> in future. The computer algoritms are proposed and realised for
> automatic search for unusual formations on Clementine's HIRES
> images. This survey is in progress.
>2. It is shown that finds of extraterrestrial artifacts
> are possible on the Earth, even if visits of extraterrestrials to
> the Earth were not realised. Even without interstellar flights,
> the spontaneous leakage of interplanetary debris into the
> interstellar medium is inevitable (by e.g. gravitational interaction
> with the planets). That is why I am collecting information about
> promising finds in prehuman layers and among pseudometeorites.
>Could this activity be supported by SETI League (at least formally)?

> Alexey V. Arkhipov
