Expert: intelligent extraterrestrial life we find in 2040
Seth Shostak expert from the Institute of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence program) located in Mountain View (CA) believes that over the next quarter century, we still can find representatives of extraterrestrial intelligent life. Around the year 2040, according to scientists, astronomers will be able to check a huge portion of the night sky and catch the electromagnetic signal produced by an extraterrestrial civilization. Scientists say that these signals and produces mankind “filling” of all the space around our solar system and beyond.
Even today’s technology has allowed scientists to discover this moment more than 3500 different extrasolar planets around the star systems in our and other galaxies. It is possible that the development of science will allow future generations of scientists and technologies to find more suitable tools and options in the search for extraterrestrial life, and it will require much less time than it takes now.
Shostak believes that studying a huge amount of other people’s worlds, our chances of actual discovery of extraterrestrial electromagnetic signals – if such exist at all – will increase substantially. Therefore it is very reasonable to expect that these extraterrestrial civilizations can be opened even in the framework of our century.
“I think that with the new opportunities that will be opened to us, we will be able to find extraterrestrial intelligence in the coming decades. And instead of searching for and monitoring of several thousands of star systems, we will be able to watch a million of these systems in 2040, “- said the scientist February 6, 2014.
“Million might be the right number for the actual discovery of something” – optimistic Shostak continued under his speech at the symposium NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC), held at Stanford University.
“The bottom line is that almost every fifth star has discovered at least one planet, which may appear or already exists life. It’s just incredibly optimistic percentage. This means that only one in our galaxy may be tens of billions of Earth-like planets “- indicates the expert.
The experiment itself for Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) began back in 1960, when astronomers using radio antennas, tried to catch the transmission of signals, which were not of the earth. Despite the tremendous work done, the scientists were able to study only a small percentage of the night sky. The chances of finding extraterrestrial electromagnetic signal can enhance such developments as the James Webb Telescope , launched in 2018 is scheduled for .
