One thing we know for sure – Space is enormous !
2017 promises to be an exciting year for alien hunters – not only has China launched the worlds biggest and most powerful radio telescope, but a number of well financed “Alien contact” projects have just been launched.
Super-intelligent aliens could be trying to contact Earth, but humans may not be able to pick up the signals yet, says Seti’s top scientist – but in 2017 we may!
Currently, the search for ET is based on picking up optical and radio signals.
Humanity should be wary of seeking out contact with alien civilizations, Stephen Hawking has warned once again.
In 2010, the famed astrophysicist said that intelligent aliens may be rapacious marauders, roaming the cosmos in search of resources to plunder and planets to conquer and colonize. He reiterates that basic concern in “Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places,” a new documentary streaming now on the CuriosityStream video service.
“One day, we might receive a signal from a planet like this,” Hawking says in the documentary, referring to a potentially habitable alien world known as Gliese 832c. “But we should be wary of answering back. Meeting an advanced civilization could be like Native Americans encountering Columbus. That didn’t turn out so well.”
Have the Russians made contact with ALIENS?
Alien Contact? Scientists Discover ‘Strong Signal’ from Space
A “strong signal” detected by a radio telescope in Russia could be a communication attempt by an alien civilization, some have suggested, a discovery that has stirred interest among the scientific community over the past few days.
The signal is from the direction of “HD164595,” a star about 95 light-years from Earth. The star is known to have at least one planet and may have more.
The observation is being made public now, but was actually detected last year by the RATAN-600 radio telescope in Zelenchukskaya, Russia, Gilster noted.
Experts say it is far too early to know what the signal means or where, precisely, it comes from. “But the signal is provocative enough that the RATAN-600 researchers are calling for permanent.
