Are we the only creatures in the universe? Are there aliens? Scientists are still actively searching for answers to these questions, and their latest findings are not disappointing – we are already one step closer to the truth about “little, green humans”.
Although astronomers have yet to come face to face with aliens hidden in mythology and legend, more information about aliens will be available by 2020 than by 2020.
In anticipation of the premiere of the local alien series on May 7, Fox promises amazing discoveries about the inhabitants of the universe that have shaken even skeptics’ belief in the existence of life outside our planet.
# 1 Are aliens trying to contact us?
Many of the inhabitants of other planets who want to communicate with us come to mind when they hear about Nigu radio radio signals found in the universe. In fact, they were never strangers.
In the spring of 2019, the Parks Telescope in Australia received a strange signal from the Proxima Centauri star system closest to the Sun at 980 MHz. Notably, signals transmitted by humans and satellites are rarely received in this band, so this event attracted the attention of specialized scientists.
After receiving the indescribable signal moved slightly, as if it were being transmitted from a moving planet. Scientists were stunned by this finding, but at the same time were careful to explain whether it was necessary to examine whether sources such as comets, hydrogen clouds, or man-made technologies could actually generate an alien signal.
The Proxima Centauri star system is 4.2 light-years away. Proxima B, one of the planets in this system, is 17% larger than Earth, orbiting the star Proxima Centauri. As the planet orbits its stars in habitable space, it is believed that water can form in liquid form. This indicates that life will also exist here. At the same time, scientists have found that half of Proxima B is always dark because of the planet’s synchronous rotation with the star. It is also thought that the surface of a planet similar to the Earth’s surface may be rock.
# 2 Who lives in the clouds of Venus?
When Venus discovered phosphine molecules in the atmosphere in September 2020, it became the most talked about planet. On Earth, the rare and toxic gas phosphine (a combination of phosphorus and hydrogen atoms) is commonly associated with anaerobic bacteria. It is also used in some human activities, such as the formation of gas as a by-product of industrial processes, and phosphine can be found at the bottom of dry pools, penguin feces, and badger intestines.
Since Venus has a very high temperature (425 degrees) and its state is often compared to hell, the question arises, how did such a molecule originate there? This can be explained by the existence of life in the mysterious clouds of the planet
While this finding may raise the expectations of extraterrestrial life, Lee Cronin, a chemist at the University of Glasgow, said that phosphine may have formed in many geological processes and was not related to life of any kind.
# 3 um Will Muwama be an alien?
Two years ago, scientists noticed that an unusual cigar-shaped object 400 meters long was interfering with the solar system. Called um Muamuwa (a distant messenger in Hawaii), scientists thought it was a comet and a guest from interstellar space.
However, a closer look revealed that um muwama was accelerating as if someone was driving. This has left scientists confused. Abraham (Avi) Lob, an astronomer at Harvard University, has suggested that the flying object may not be a comet, but an alien probe. This is driven by a “light sail” – a material a few millimeters thick, wide and absorbing speed under the influence of solar radiation.
At the same time, other scientists rejected Lab’s idea, and the frozen hydrogen on the surface of the object melted and moved forward, much like the spacecraft’s engines. But Leb was not indebted to his answer, pointing out that frozen hydrogen was likely to heat up in the vast interstellar system and that the object would have disappeared from um muwama long before it reached our galaxy.
It seems that we will have to wait a long time for the scientists to come to a unanimous conclusion as to what this Nigu “magic” guest was.
# 4 Are there dozens of alien cultures in our galaxy?
Looking up at the starry night sky, none of us even thought, is there anyone there, far away, we do not know whose existence it is. Answers from a study published in the American Journal of Astronomy last June. There are 36 intelligent alien cultures in the Milky Way.
How did the researchers come to this conclusion? Quite simply – it uses a decades old system called the Drake Formula. It was created in 1961 by the American astronomer Frank Drake in an attempt to estimate the approximate number of civilizations that could be theoretically related to our galaxy (intelligent civilizations).
Although we know all the variables in the equation, we can estimate the number of these civilizations today, but that does not mean that we can communicate any of them in the near future. The nearest intelligent civilization is 17,000 light-years from Earth.
# 5 Is there life near a black hole?
When searching for evidence of life in the universe, most scientists prefer what they already know, that is, Earth-like planets orbiting stars. But what if desire orbits the black hole?
This idea is not really absurd or strange, because it contradicts the popular notion that black holes are irreversible and absorb those around them with great force, and not so. In their vicinity, not only gravitational stable orbits, but also light from space radiation can occur. This light, which is close to absolute zero due to the remnants of the early universe, heats up into the black hole. In the spring of 2020, scientists published a research paper stating that an unusual place would provide much needed heat and energy to selected organisms, such as their home. It remains to be seen whether there will be evidence for such a theory.
