Our ancient human ancestors interbred with other early hominids as well as Neanderthals, new research indicates.
So the Allen Telescope Array is back online, courtesy of the SETI Institute and wealthy American philanthropists like Paul Allen, Larry Niven and Jodie Foster. But here's why SETI is an utter waste of time.
New genetic research appears to confirm that the ancestors of modern non-Africans interbred with Neanderthals.
Scientists have sequenced the complete Neanderthal genome, and discovered that modern humans are as much as two percent Neanderthal ourselves, thanks to comparatively recent interbreeding.
