Could Milky Way’s core harbour advanced alien life?

Posted by in category: alien life

A new effort to detect extraterrestrial life will listen for radio pulses coming from the galactic nucleus. Pulsars, which are stars that naturally emit narrow-frequency pulses, are also intentionally used by humans in technology like radar.

These pulses are a useful means of communication over great distances and a desirable target to listen for when looking for extraterrestrial civilisations because they stand out against the ambient radio noise of space.

A recent study that was released on May 30 in The Astronomical Journal by researchers described their approach to looking for alien life.
