From new strategies at SETI to quantum supercomputers, this article outlines 7 ways in which humans may be able to search for aliens.
SETI has been looking in the wrong places. Turns out proof of aliens may be inscribed in our DNA.
Are two of the biggest mysteries in the universe interconnected? Is there a reason why we have received no signals from a technologically advanced civilization? This post explores the tantalizing possibility that dark matter is the sandbox for post-singularity aliens.
The Bhathal discovery appears to be a regular-patterned laser pulse emanating from space. Of course, as per the scientific method, his discovery will be under complete scrutiny and review by his peers.
We really believe that in the next 20 years or so, we are going to learn a great deal more about life beyond Earth and very likely we will have detected that life and perhaps even intelligent life elsewhere in the galaxy.
The switch has been thrown on a telescope specifically designed to seek out alien life.Funded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen
Researchers Claim Listening For Signals From ET Is Futile
Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the Seti Institute in Mountain View, California, said signs of intelligent life - if any existed - would be found within 20 years.
It’s a good time for critical thinking in classrooms. With the observations being made from Mars orbiters, students and teachers can critically consider the "face on Mars".
The first photograph of this bumpy mesa was snapped by the Viking Orbiter, and released by NASA to the public on July 31, 1976.
It’s a question as common as brown dogs: will alien life be carbon-based?
Just as our own robots reach out beyond the solar system, searching for life elsewhere may well involve hailing some kind of space artifact in our own neighborhood.
It’s interesting to imagine that attempts by extraterrestrials to locate other intelligence in the Galaxy might be made not by officialdom in massive societal programs, but by the personal efforts of the young and the daring.
Astronomers have completed their most sensitive search yet for radio signals from intelligent life in space.
No one knows for sure what caused the signal.
Have aliens sent mechanical emissaries to our solar system -- robotic probes on a snoopy mission to reconnoiter Earth?
To possibly see ET, what is required to map a world 50 light-years distant?
Earthlings could make contact with extraterrestrial beings by the year 2025, two astronomers predict in a new book.
Of the many "maybe’s" that SETI has turned up in its four-decade history, none is better known than the one that was discovered in August, 1977, in Columbus, Ohio. The famous Wow signal was found as part of a long-running sky survey conducted with Ohio State University’s "Big Ear" radio telescope.

Even optimists concede it is a needle-in-a-haystack quest. So far, there isn’t a shred of convincing evidence for any life beyond Earth, let alone intelligent life.
