To Find Alien Cities, Look for City Lights on Distant Planets

RATE THIS! +0
Posted in Science on 7th Nov, 2011 06:01 PM by APM

The search for extraterrestrial life elsewhere in our universe has taken many forms, from the radio signal searching undertaken by SETI to the rovers and probes deployed elsewhere in our universe. But if it’s intelligent civilizations we’re looking for, say a couple of Harvard and Princeton researchers, we can likely find them just by literally looking for them. Alien civilizations that evolved in the light from their own stars would likely artificially illuminate their cities, and we should be able to find them by looking for illumination on the night side of exoplanets.

 

In a paper available on arXiv, Abraham Loeb of Harvard and Edwin Turner of Princeton point out that it’s entirely plausible that other alien civilizations, if they exist, would artificially illuminate their spaces just as we have. And if they have, this light will be distinguishable from natural illumination, even at astronomical distances.

iPlay CG uses the device's sound enngie so sometimes it may lock up for unknown reasons. Go into sound settings, slide the volume to maximum and flip all the switches off and back on. This will refresh the sound enngie immediately. Reply
