 SETI


A candidate signal for SETI is a welcome sign that our efforts in that direction may one day pay off. An international team of researchers has announced the detection of “a strong signal in the direction of HD164595” in a document now being circulated through contact person Alexander Panov. The detection was made with the RATAN-600 radio telescope in Zelenchukskaya, in the Karachay–Cherkess Republic of Russia, not far from the border with Georgia in the Caucasus.

And that made us wonder what might happen if, by some strange luck, Proxima Centauri b were to turn out to harbor signs of intelligent life. Who do scientists tell first? Who decides how we earthlings respond? How does one have a close encounter of the bureaucratic kind?

Scientists might have found the closest ever candidate for another Earth that could support life, according to reports. But nobody will say whether it’s true. The new-found planet orbits around a now well-investigated star in Proxima Centauri, near us, according to reports. It is similar to Earth and could support life, it is claimed. The researchers that found the planet are expected to show it off at the end of this month. But until then they are saying nothing.

The telescope will cover 400 square degrees field of view, where 45 exoplanets in 38 planetary systems known. Radio spectra from those systems will be analysed to find the limits on the presence of narrow line emission - which could signify the presence of chemicals suitable for life.

Jupiter is often referred to as a “failed star,” leading some futurists to wonder if our descendants might set it ablaze in a process called planetary stellification. A new study suggests this is indeed theoretically possible—and that we should be on the hunt for galactic aliens who have already converted their gas giants into stellar objects.

Many scientists believe that alien civilisations exist. For them, the question is now whether we will encounter them in the near future or a very long time from now, rather than if at all.

Auckland University of Technology's Professor Steve Pointing will be speaking at a Great Barrier Island festival in September, alongside the Pope's astronomer and a top US planetary scientist, about the search for life elsewhere in the universe. Ponting lists five reasons we might find life on another planet by the end of this century - and five reasons we won't.

What sets exoplanet research apart, he said, is that it takes us a step closer to answering the fundamental question humans have always wondered … are we alone? I was excited by his statement because I also recently met a couple of scientists at Mauna Kea’s Keck Observatory in Hawaii who have created a new citizen science project—called Project Panoptes—focused on the search for exoplanets.

If the origin of life is common on other worlds, the universe should be a cosmic zoo full of complex multicellular organisms. Dirk Schulze-Makuch, a Washington State University astrobiologist, uses the evolution of Earth life as a model to predict what humans might find living on distant planets and moons in a new paper published in the journal Life.
