North State Makes Smithsonian List: Tour the World's Science Labs
Hat Creek
Published: 4:29 PM 4/5/2013

According to this Smithsonian Magazine blog, you could check out CERN in Europe or drive a bit east to Hat Creek and take a self-guided tour of the Allen Telescope Array and its search for ET. Excerpt:

SETI Institute. It was founded in Mountain View, California, in 1984, and since then, well, this alien-hunting institute hasn't really discovered what it has been looking for.

Not that scientists with the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute aren't trying. The SETI Institute uses the Allen Telescope Array, near Mount Lassen, to listen closely to the sounds of the stars, hoping to receive signals that might indicate the presence of other intelligent beings in the universe.

Let's just hope they're a little less intelligent than we are. After all, some scientists have voiced concerns about what will happen if humans actually succeed in making contact with an alien species.

In 2011, researchers at Penn State and NASA jointly released a report in which scientists warned that aliens might enslave, kill or eat us.

Undaunted by what fate may befall us--and in spite of recent budget constraints--the SETI Institute continues its search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

The Allen Telescope Array is located at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory. Here, the heavily forested location makes for a quiet and scenic getaway.

The riffles of Hat Creek are famed for their wild trout, while frequently clear night skies make for fine tent-free summertime camping in the nearby Lassen Volcanic National Park. Visitors to the Hat Creek Observatory can take self-guided tours.
