Scientists have tried to find ways of getting in touch with extraterrestrial life for a very long time. But every attempt has proved to be unsuccessful, or at least that’s what the masses have been told.
The question whether there are other forms of life somewhere in the infinity of the universe has boggled scientists for centuries.
Although there have been numerous reports of UFO sightings, abductions and contact with extraterrestrial life, there is no scientific evidence to prove that those things really happened.
So because of this, many concluded that our planet is the only one that nurtures life in the whole universe.
However, some scientists will not give up and there will always be some who will try different methods of contacting alien life.
The current scientific approach proposed by a team of researchers is to track radio signals into space that could be coming from alien advanced civilizations.
This method has proved to be inefficient so far and some scientists believe that in order to reach out to alien life it’s required a far more advanced technology.
Douglas Vakoch, a researcher from the SETI institute, came with a new proposition to the American Association for the Advancement of Science for contacting any possible alien life forms out there.
Vakoch said that instead of waiting to track down radio signals from alien life, the scientists should try to send out signals from our Planet in order for the alien civilizations to know that we are looking for them.
Vakoch explained that the Active SETI project could prove to be an efficient strategy for establishing contact with extraterrestrial life.
The scientist added that this new method to contact alien life he’s proposing would require people to be more optimistic about a possible encounter with alien life, and should try to control their fears and uncertainties.
Director of the SETI Research center, Seth Shostak, suggested that scientists should try to send into outer space Internet contents like videos, text, sound and photos, so that possible alien civilizations can get a glimpse of what our planet is like.
But sending all the internet data to outer space using a radio transmitter would not be very efficient because it would take too long – at least a month. So scientists suggest using a special laser, which would take only a few days to send all the internet contents out there.
But some scientists do not approve of this method, saying that it could expose human race to a great risk, if indeed there is alien life out there.
