Would Finding an Alien Civilisation Prove or Deny the Existence of God?

Does God exist? That is a question that has been pondered over for 1000s of years since humanity could first think about his existence. Religions claim to know the answer and scientists take an objective view that is always changing as evidence appears. Most religions have to look at their beliefs differently or disregard science [...]

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 [...]

Good Evidence for Life on Saturn’s Moon Titan

The Cassini spacecraft has noticed on Titan, Saturn’s moon, that hydrogen molecules flow down through the atmosphere and disappear when they reach the surface (Icarus Journal). Also the hydrocarbons on the surface of Titan have been mapped and show that there is a lack of acetylne (Journal of geophysical research). The lack of acetylne could [...]

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 [...]

Does Something Unknown Lurk at the Galactic Center?

It may be a bit of a long way away (26,000 ly)  but it is an interesting place to go.  At 26,000 light years away it would take  26,000 years as measured by clocks on Earth at the speed of light, and no time at all as measured by your watch. Time is relative, not fixed. [...]

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 [...]
