Who We Are: Richard Factor
Mr. Richard Factor stepped onto the SETI stage when the U.S. Congress terminated funding for NASA's SETI projects in 1993. Dismayed by that short-sighted political decision, he founded the SETI League to privatize SETI. He continues to serve vigorously as the League's first president. He is a science buff and science fiction fan who wishes he had more time to pursue research and reading. At the SETI League's technical symposium in 2001, his paper spelled out the advantages of gravitational lensing SETI. A successful entrepreneur, he heads Eventide Inc., manufacturers of advanced electronic equipment for the broadcast, recording, and aviation industries. When not running his business or privatizing SETI, Richard is busy turning a Toyota Prius into a UPS for his house.
