A mysterious radio signal, dubbed "BLC1", appeared to originate from the vicinity of Proxima Centauri in December 2020. Space.com interviews Breakthrough Initiatives executive director Peter Worden about this and more generally, the search for alien "technosignatures”. Also: the protocols for announcing an ET detection and the latest about the prospects for life on Venus.

Breakthrough Listen is now in the process of bringing online the South African MeerKAT radio telescope for additional observations in their projects.
