Scientists from the University of California Los Angeles are trying to catch signals from “aliens” using the powerful Green Bank telescope.
In 2018-2019, experts focused on 31 stars in the galaxy similar to the Sun in their characteristics. Then astronomers in total “heard” 26.6 million radio signals.
However, a detailed analysis revealed that various vibrations from the Earth caused all the signals.
According to the study results, scientists concluded that modern methods of information analysis could be used in the future to identify extraterrestrial intelligent creatures. Still, at this stage, it is necessary to learn how to filter radio frequency interference.
Every hour the equipment of specialists records millions of techno-signatures; each case is subject to processing. Existing algorithms can classify approximately 99.8% of radio signals, the University added.
In September, astronomers scanned 10.3 million stars for signs of life or any civilizations’ presence on other planets.
