I don't understand why this seems to be the standard when searching for extraterrestrial signals
look for very brief but powerful signals Is there a particular reason we believe the signals being looked for would be brief and not sustained? And in this case, what is brief? Like nanosecond or 7-8 minutes?

Thank you!
