To quote in part:

Anyone who’s seen the [1997] movie “Contact,” based on Carl Sagan’s [1985]
novel of the same title, has a good idea of what the Phoenix team does for
a living.

...
The work is frequently dull, but the enticement is enormous.
After all, sooner or later it’s bound to happen. The computers
will find what no human ear could hear: a faint whistle, a flute
played against Niagara Falls — conclusive proof that the
universe is home to far more than just us.
