The search for alien life gathers pace
Posted on Jul 23, 2015 5:33 pm

Earlier this week in London the billionaire physics enthusiast Yuri Milner joined forces with some of the biggest names in astronomy and astrophysics to announce a $100m initiative to search for signs of intelligent life on planets other than Earth. The money will be used to buy time on a number of telescopes to search for radio and optical signals created by alien civilizations.

Called Breakthrough Listen, the project will survey one million of the closest stars to Earth and will also scan the centre of our galaxy and the entire galactic plane. Beyond the Milky Way, the telescope will also scrutinize the 100 closest galaxies for intelligent life.

Searching for intelligent life is one thing, but what if we actually find something? A related initiative called Breakthrough Message involves a $1m competition to compose a message to other worlds that could be broadcast from Earth. However, there is a very important caveat: “This initiative is not a commitment to send messages. It’s a way to learn about the potential languages of interstellar communication and to spur global discussion on the ethical and philosophical issues surrounding communication with intelligent life beyond Earth.”

This is a nice way of saying maybe we shouldn’t advertise our existence to extraterrestrial beings because they may be hostile. Indeed, the history of colonization here on Earth tells us that when folks with superior technology turn up on your shores, things usually don’t go well.
