(ORDO NEWS) — A team of American physicists has prepared an article discussing the possibility of using the Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) to search for evidence that aliens are flying in huge spaceships around the Milky Way.
Over the past few decades, astrophysicists and science fiction enthusiasts have become increasingly frustrated with humanity’s inability to detect the presence of extraterrestrial life in the universe.
However, scientists believe that life must exist somewhere else besides the Earth.
The problem is that researchers have yet to find even the slightest evidence of this. Eminent scientists are increasingly calling for new, more exotic ways of searching.
In this new work, the researchers note that science has advanced so far that gravitational waves can be detected using technologies such as LIGO.
They also speculate that alien spaceships may be leaving behind gravitational waves that can be detected here on Earth.
Intrigued by their own idea, the researchers considered some of the factors that must be considered for the development of such a scenario.
First, the size of the ship. Scientists have come to the conclusion that it must be about the size of Jupiter in order to generate gravitational waves capable of reaching the Earth.
The ship must also move very fast. According to calculations, its speed should be about 1/10 of the speed of light.
And it should be close enough – about 326,000 light years from Earth. Scientists note that under such conditions, researchers from LIGO could detect gravitational waves generated by an alien spacecraft.
The researchers also noticed that if aliens use warp drives, scientists on Earth will also be able to detect them using the same technology, because such a ship would also generate gravitational waves.
