Mobile phones are so ubiquitous that we no longer think about how
they work. The key to their operation is the sheer number of radio
cell towers cover a large percentage of the earth’s surface, especially
in densely populated areas, and they constantly transmit microwave
signals. Considering that all these cell towers are emitting all these
radio signals, it’s a funny question whether these signals can be
detected by an alien civilization.
The answer to this question was recently published
in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The article
talks about how radio signals entering space have changed over time.
the 20th century, the bulk of radio broadcasts were from commercial
radio and television stations. Now these transmissions are negligible
compared to mobile communications. Military radar transmissions are
still the most powerful source of radio leakage from Earth, but cell
towers are now in second place.
cell tower emits a radio signal with a power of 100-200 watts. Given
the number of towers and the amount of radio leakage, this amounts to
several gigawatts radiated into space. If we assume that an alien
civilization has advanced radio astronomy, then our transmissions should
be detected within a dozen light years or so.
But it depends on
where the aliens are. Cell towers radiate most of their radio signal
power parallel to the Earth’s surface, so the tower’s signal is
strongest when it’s going up or down.
And since most of the towers
are in the northern hemisphere, an alien star in the northern
hemisphere will receive a stronger signal than a star from the southern
Another complication is that all the signals from the
towers are different, and they overlap each other in such a way that an
alien civilization would not be able to distinguish any specific
don’t have to worry about aliens listening in on your private phone
calls. But they could still use the signals to learn some interesting
things about Earth.
Since the distribution of towers roughly
corresponds to the distribution of our population, aliens could measure
the Earth’s rotation and axial tilt. They would also have a measure of
the distribution of land on Earth, and over time they could study how
our population is distributed.
As an example, the team simulated
the signals seen from three nearby stars. Alpha Centauri is in the
southern hemisphere, but only 4 light years away, so it should be
receiving a tangible signal from us.
Barnard’s Star (6 light years
away) and HD 95735 (8 light years away) are in the northern hemisphere
and could also receive good radio data from Earth. All three of these
star systems are known to have planets, although none of them has a
potentially habitable world.
humanity transitions to more advanced mobile technologies such as 5G,
tower signals will become even stronger, meaning more nearby stars will
“see” the signal from Earth. It’s only a matter of time before our phone
signals reach and touch alien intelligences.
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
