Why the Discovery of Aliens Will Not Be Covered up by a Government

The government (of any country) will not cover up the discovery of aliens by SETI. Jill Tarter and Seth Shostak are absolutely certain of this. This is mainly because 13 years ago a signal was received which we now know was a false alarm but showed that the procedure on receiving an alien signal would not [...]

Where Should We Look for Alien Artefacts?

There is a problem with our approach at the moment when looking for alien civilisations. SETI looks for signals that are sent by the electromagnetic spectrum and their are a lot of frequencies to search. If you pair this with the size of the universe you can see how SETI is really looking for a [...]

How to Talk to Aliens

Lots of signals have gone into space such as TV, radar and radio. The signals have been betraying our presence for 60 years and have passed over about 6000 star systems and are reaching new systems every day. This would seem to be enough, even though we haven’t received anything back yet, but what if [...]

Best Of The Week Podcast- SETI and the Universe

Fifty years ago, a young astronomer named Frank Drake pointed a radio telescope at nearby stars in the hope of picking up a signal from an alien civilization. Thus began one of the boldest scientific projects in history: the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). A great lecture with slides from the Royal Society. Join the [...]

Defining Alien Life & The Different Weird Forms ET Could Take

The universe is full of stars. We are not so sure about habitable planets though. The habitable zone is defined as the distance from the parent star where water flows freely as a liquid. Saying that, over 300 planets have been found so far. Unfortunately from earth we just can’t pick up habitable planets but [...]

Alien Civilization Types From 1 To 7

What could an alien civilisation be able to do? Well, as we have not found any alien civilisations then everything is guesswork based on the laws of physics and our experiences here on earth. This could be completely wrong or it could be completely right or it could be somewhere in between. It is great [...]

21 Reasons We Have Not Talked To Or Found Alien Civilizations

Look up and you will see lots of dots of light. No, it’s not a load of cars screaming towards the Earth because they missed the stop sign at Mars.  It’s stars. There are said to be about 140 billion stars that look like the sun in the Milky Way. There are a lot more stars [...]

Where Are All The Civilisations?

What is going on? Where are they all? Are they here? Too many questions and literally too little time. It just seems so really boring that we can be the only ones in this universe. Time is definitely a massive problem when looking for somebody alien to chat to. Does it matter that there are [...]

Using A Laser To Communicate With Aliens

A communication strategy that aliens might use instead of radio signals is to send brief and intense bursts of laser light across the galaxy – sort of like a signal lamp between two ships. Some space telescopes would be ideally suited to pluck out such a signal from the sky background. Why laser beams instead of radio transmitters? [...]

ET leftovers

We have been trying to communicate with ET Or other civilisations for a long human time but when you compare that to the universe’s clock it’s not even one millionth of a second. Time is the big problem when looking for other civilisations and being human we really don’t have time on our side at [...]
