Most of the methods for searching for extraterrestrial civilizations are built around the detection of specific electromagnetic radiation.
They are looking for characteristic changes in the luminosity of stars, either their special spectrum, or the simplest – radio waves that differ from natural sources. American physicists proposed to expand the range of instruments used at the expense of gravitational wave detectors.
The notorious Fermi paradox worries not only ufologists and futurologists, but also full-fledged scientists. There are too many indications that life in the universe cannot be a unique earthly phenomenon.
At the same time, until now, humanity has not met a single evidence of other intelligent civilizations. One of the hypotheses is that our tools are not good enough or not properly configured to find them, therefore, it is necessary to come up with new methods.
Or find new ways to use tools already in the arsenal of astrophysicists. For example, gravitational wave observatories. The logic is as follows: if a highly developed civilization wants to travel on the scale of the galaxy, sooner or later it will build a giant or fast spaceship.
Perhaps both huge and fast at the same time. And where there is a large mass, or accelerations up to speeds of units or even tens of percent of the speed of light, there arise fluctuations in space-time. Which we call gravitational waves.
A huge plus of gravitational wave detectors as tools for searching for extraterrestrial civilizations is their field of view. Unlike optical or radio telescopes, which have an extremely narrow “field of view”, gravitational wave detectors “look” at the entire sky at once.
Several physicists from leading American universities and scientific organizations have considered this idea in detail. Their detailed calculations can be found on the portal of preliminary publications (preprints) arXiv.
The calculations in this work show that the most sensitive of the existing gravitational wave detectors – ground-based interferometers LIGO , VIRGO and KAGRA – allow you to detect alien ships within a radius of up to one hundred kiloparsecs from Earth (326,156 light years).
That is, far beyond the Milky Way, whose diameter is only 105.7 thousand light years. True, alien ships should have a mass of about ten Jupiters and accelerate to 10% of the speed of light.
The minimum detection threshold with the available instruments is an object with a mass of approximately Mercury, accelerating to a comparable speed. It will be possible to detect it already within a radius of “only” 32 light years – in the vicinity of the stars closest to the Sun.
A colossal mass of rapidly accelerating ships ( RAMAcraft ) is not a fantastic assumption. Even traveling between neighboring stars within a reasonable amount of time requires huge amounts of working fluid. Nobody canceled Newton’s laws.
And if we are talking about civilizations that can colonize a significant part of the galaxy, then they will most likely need ships that transport entire populations within a lifetime of a few generations.
Alternative modes of transportation like “warp technology” and the Alcubierre Bubble make things easier. The mass of ships built on their basis will also be huge – a few or tens of Jupiterian ones, but the speed of movement is higher.
In addition, the very principle of their work implies the curvature of space-time, and hence the creation of gravitational waves. Such objects should be detectable at even greater distances.
In addition, in the coming years, the creation of even more sensitive gravitational-wave observatories will begin – the space Big Bang Observer and DECIGO . With their help, the search efficiency will increase by an order of magnitude.
But there is a problem: you need to know what to look for. It is likely that human instruments have already recorded traces of alien ships flying across the Milky Way, we just did not distinguish them from natural sources. A whole section of the described scientific work is devoted to methods of data analysis.
It is possible that in the foreseeable future, researchers looking for extraterrestrial civilizations will have incredible amounts of data to study. If the scientific community, of course, agrees with the proposed theses. From the outside, they look more than reasonable.
Researcher discovered mysterious structures on the Moon
Renowned ufologist and virtual archaeologist Scott Waring is back in
the spotlight with his latest discovery: mysterious structures on the
surface of the Moon.
In photographs of the Moon obtained by the American space agency NASA, he discovered something that raises many questions.
discovery became the subject of discussion among lovers of the
mysteries of space. The ufologist said that the photograph was published
by NASA just a few days ago, and immediately after that he began a
detailed analysis of it.
According to Waring, the photograph shows
structures that could not have formed naturally. These unusual objects
could have been built by extraterrestrial civilizations, the researcher
the most surprising thing is that, according to Waring, NASA is not
even trying to hide this information. Skeptics argue that if evidence of
alien intervention was actually found on the Moon, the agency would try
to hide such facts.
However, Waring believes that the agency is
deliberately disclosing this information to generate public interest and
attention to aliens.
The researcher also calls on NASA to provide
more details about the origin of these mysterious structures and
conduct more research.
The 1933 UFO Crash in Italy: The First and Forgotten Roswell?
When we think of UFO crashes, the first thing that comes to mind is
the famous Roswell incident of 1947, when a mysterious object crashed on
a ranch in New Mexico, sparking decades of speculation and controversy.
what if Roswell was not the first, nor the only, UFO crash on Earth?
What if there was an earlier and more obscure case that involved a
fascist dictator, a secret department, and a possible cover-up by the US
That is the intriguing story of the 1933 UFO crash in
Italy, which has recently resurfaced thanks to new allegations and
evidence from researchers and former intelligence officials.
According to these sources, a bell-shaped flying saucer crashed near Magenta, a town west of Milan, on June 13, 1933.
craft was reportedly recovered by the Italian authorities and taken to a
nearby airfield, where it was examined by a team of experts led by none
other than Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of radio.
known about the first “UFO” case in Italy: the fascist regime
immediately secreted the story. It was Roberto Pinotti, founder and
secretary of the National UFO Center, who tried to dissolve the mist of
mystery that surrounds the case.
At the “Ufology” conference,
which was held near Lake Maggiore, in Arona, he explained that “the
remains of the UFO, which in the drawings is described as a cylindrical
aircraft, with a bottleneck at the end, with portholes on the side, from
which white and red lights came out, were taken to the Siai-Marchetti
warehouses in Vergiate, where they remained for 12 years.
bodies of the pilots, preserved in formalin, were studied for a long
time. It is known that they were 1.80 tall, had light hair, and
oriental-looking blue eyes.
is therefore understandable why Mussolini thought they were German
pilots, despite the authoritative contrary opinion of Marconi himself.
hypothesis advanced by Pinotti could also redefine the history of the
pre-war period: “The Duce believed, perhaps, that it would be
appropriate to ally himself with a military power like that of Nazi
Germany, capable of producing an aircraft never seen before, rather than
having her as an enemy.”
The craft itself was said to be made of
an unknown metal that was resistant to heat and corrosion, and had a
complex propulsion system and electromagnetic fields.
dictator Benito Mussolini, who was fascinated by the phenomenon, ordered
the creation of a secret department called “Gabinetto RS/33” (or RS/33
Cabinet) to study the saucer and its technology. The department was
headed by Marconi and included scientists, engineers, and military
officers. Their goal was to reverse-engineer the alien craft and use it
for military purposes.
their plans were thwarted by the end of World War II, when Italy was
invaded by the Allied forces. According to some accounts, the American
troops seized the saucer and its remains and shipped them to the US,
where they became part of a covert program that collected and studied
multiple “non-human” flying saucers.
This program was allegedly
overseen by the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), a highly secretive
intelligence agency that operates spy satellites.
of this program was recently revealed by David Grusch, a former NRO
officer who claims to have firsthand knowledge of it. Grusch says that
he has seen documents and photos that prove that the US government has
obtained several alien crafts over the years, including the one from
Italy in 1933. He also says that he has spoken to other former
intelligence officers who were part of the program and confirmed his
The 1933 UFO crash in Italy may be one of the oldest and
most forgotten cases in UAP history, but it may also be one of the most
important ones. It may hold clues to the origin and purpose of these
mysterious visitors, as well as their impact on human history and
