Help Arecibo! Aliens Do Asteroids

Paul Miller at Engadget makes a plea to humans everywhere.

If you didn't already know ( I, for sure, was not aware of this) that the government has been funding the Arecibo Observatory, the world's largest radio telescope and SETI@home's data source, it can detect "earth-threatening asteroid before it's too late" and for aliens. The only problem with this is it may go into nonexistence.

SETIhome are pleaing for alien angels to save them from a possible budget cut. They are asking people to write urgent and persuasive letters to congress. A replacement would not be online until 2020, meaning we would be vulnerable to every asteroid that tries to attack us.

What do you think should be done?
