Where is everybody? Are we really alone out here, or are aliens avoiding us?
The world’s largest radio telescope, in southwestern China, is joining an international search for extraterrestrial intelligence focused on a mysterious, flickering star that has sparked unprecedented curiosity in recent months.
A newly proposed technique could make it possible to search for life on alien planets much sooner than scientists had expected.
A couple of scientists have considered how the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is conducted and, working off the idea that sufficiently advanced alien beings would at least attempt to build defensive structures around their world to defend against potentially catastrophic extraplanetary threats, suggest that one way such beings might be found would be through their defense systems. In fact, the scientists contend, the aliens would not necessarily have to be much more advanced than humans.
To find habitable worlds in a sea of space data, we need computers that can think fast
The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has been ongoing for more than half a century, and its senior astronomer believes that humanity should alter its search parameters to include — if not actually focus on — intelligent alien machines.
A team of scientists have revealed new research that seems to indicate intelligent aliens beyond planet Earth exist and are trying to communicate with others.
Alien life would most likely be discovered deep in the oceans of water planets, studies suggest.
SETI are leaving no stone unturned as they search for any signs of alien life, not just intelligent ones
Covering an area the size of 30 football pitches, China’s Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) was officially completed this week, making it the largest radio telescope in the world.
