(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists from the International Center for Radio Astronomy Research, which is based at Curtin University, spent 17 hours trying to catch low-frequency signals in the FM band. Although the signals were never recorded, the scientists are not planning to give up.
Australian astronomers have pointed the Murchison Widefield Array radio telescope at Parus (constellation in the southern sky) in the hope of capturing messages from aliens. For some reason, the experts decided that alien civilizations broadcast at frequencies of 72-240 MHz.
Experts managed to study an area that contains 10 million stars. After 17 hours, no signals were received. The humanoids are either not there, or they are further away, which is why their signal does not reach us. Astronomers will soon install the new, more sensitive Square Kilometer Array (SKA) radio telescope and try their luck again. If we take the Earth, then the radio signal from it extends for about 200 light-years. Radio waves covered 6 thousand star systems.
American astronomers Luis Ancordoki, Susanna Weber, and Horse Soriano believe that alien life is present within 30,000 light-years. To advance this theory, the famous Drake equation was analyzed, thanks to which it is possible to determine the possible number of brothers in mind. Different scientists call different data: from 0 to 5 thousand intelligent civilizations can be present around us. The equation includes variables such as the chances of life being born, the number of planets, stars, and so on.
