What should our telescopes look for if we are trying to find alien civilizations?

One proposed mission was to put a telescope (or telescopes) in solar orbit past the asteroid belt and look for nearby extra solar planets in the infrared light region. The premise is that planets with abundant life would be exceedingly bright at those wavelengths. I don't

What do you think the future ruins of our civilization will look like?

If humans vanish very little of our civilisation will exist after 500 or even 100 or so years.This is because when we build things we build them at a cost. I mean sure we can use concrete that will last forever

Small, because of the Fermi paradox.More info:The Cross Of The MomentRare Earth hypothesis

How might a benevolent Alien Civilization decide which Human Nation (or Tribe) to make first contact with? Which do you think they would pick?

A benevolent Alien civilization may treat human civilization just the way humans treat an isolated tribe in Andaman Sentinel Island who are still

Can civilization survive without laws?

It is possible.However you would have to accept that people could kill you (or your relatives), steal from you, commit rape or adultery, etc. without any retribution. If you want someone punished for doing something, you have to sort it out yourself.There would be no shared facilities (e.g. roads, education, hospitals or doctors). You

How many people are necessary for rebuilding the human civilization if it is destroyed?

Well, apparantely there was a time that the human population was estimated to have been reduced to around 11,000-15,000 individuals Page on Wikipedia, and we rebounded then, so I'd say that's a safe number to ballpark around to maintain sufficient genetic diversity.

Have alien bodies, ruins, ancient civilizations been found in Antarctica?

As an alumnus of Miskatonic University, we don't like to talk about what the Pabodie Expedition discovered down there in 1931. The whole thing was such an embarrassment that the only account of it is a rather fantastic story by a certain Mr. Lovecraft of Providence RI. There they were doing important meteorological and geological research, and

What would an advanced alien civilisation billions of years ahead of us in terms of technology look like?

Given that such a civilization would be unimaginably far ahead of us, I would suggest the universe around us would be marked by their works, so marked that their enormous constructions would appear to us natural features of the universe. I have joked

How would humans react to a visitation from an advanced extraterrestrial civilization on January 1, 2019?

It depends entirely on the aliens.If they come in peace, and we have the sense to recognise that, then it would be a wonderful learning exercise for humanity. If we see them as hostile, or they are in fact hostile, then we would fight. We would

What if there is an Earth-like planet that has a human civilization just like us, but they are not technologically advanced? Will we be able to know that life exists there?

Yes possibly, until algae and plants evolved on earth there was only a tiny amount of oxygen in the atmosphere. high levels of oxygen might indicate plant life at least.Detecting that oxygen is a whole other story and we will have to wait for new telescopes to be

Just how advanced can a civilization become?

The definition seems to be based on how far you can get from your home planet. This says nothing about how well your civilization is organized - about the quality of racial equality, justice and achievement. The Soviets, for example, were rivals to

1- Something that can be seen from far away is that our Star system has only one star, which is uncommon (it can be seen though the variation of luminosity, and change of spectrum if the stars have different composition.It can be reasonably supposed correlated with life, since there is

Why would an alien civilization develop similar to ours?

They probably need to eat so they would eat like us or like reptiles. They need to multiply so they would multiply like sugarcane or dogs. They probably want a leader so they would take a vote. They get cold so they would build a coat and wear it. The Neanderthals froze to death. The

Will UFO disclosure destroy human civilization? Can we handle the truth?

From one who is very well informed about the subject of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena who follows the evidence, as opposed to one who just wants to believe in aliens, UFO disclosure of non-terrestrial entities having visited earth, is a real possibility if not flat out real.When one eliminates all

Is religion anti-science?

I'm going to play with some semantics and say no. Religion is not anti-science. People are anti-science. (Guns don't kill people, people kill guns, anyone?)I don't know of a single religion that explicitly says that the act of obtaining knowledge is sinful or otherwise against any particular facet of that religion. Most knowledge doesn't even come close to conflicting

If the human race were wiped out today, would a similarly advanced civilisation 1 billion years in the future be able to identify that it was an advanced civilisation?

No, because we are not an advanced civilization. At best we're an adolescent one. The first real technological paradigm shift that mankind experienced was the Neolithic Revolution about 12,000 years ago, when we starting farming, allowing us to support larger populations. 12,000 years isn't even the blink of an eye on an evolutionary scale. And the

Will we ever be able to find the definitive proof that advanced alien civilization visited the earth?

By counter example, a thought experiment can definitively prove that ET has never visited and it goes like this:Were it possible for even one of the countless civilizations that are statistically certain to exist to visit Earth, then many, many distinct civilizations would be continuously visiting us as well.They ain't, so

Could an advanced alien civilization be living under Martian surface?

Highly improbable. If they could be highly intelligent, then they couldn't have evolved underground. If they didn't evolve underground but gradually relocated,  then it's quite safe to say that they would have left the surface littered and scattered with innumerous amounts of trash and structures. But we didn't

Can a type 2 civilization master interstellar travel?

Yes. Absolutely.A type I will be sending out ships on antimatter torches long begore it hits type 2.Now interstellar is very realistic for a civilization at this points. Regular commerce ships on dozen year journeys connecting a growing network of colonies is the very realistic future of space travel

Why are Artifacts important to civilization?

Artifacts give us a look into the past and how people lived. It isn't just the artifacts that give the archaeologists information it's the context that they're in. Which is why, for example, a large effigy pipe made of a traded stone was gifted to the University of Mississippi by its finder in the 19th century but they
