Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, or SETI, is basically what the full name says. SETI is the search to find some sort of extra-terrestrial intelligence in the universe. The acronym SETI was actually made in the 1960’s and is used to describe the all of the radio signals from astronomers that are seeking evidence of some form of an intelligence life source out there. There is a very famous question in the world and what it asks is “Are we alone?” Well that is where SETI comes in. Before the twentieth century we could see lights in the sky, however then we knew they were just other suns and stars. Somehow the speculation got to us and now we believe that they are UFO’s or Unidentified Flying Objects. We want to know if they are UFO’s flown by some sort intelligent life such as aliens. Now a lot of people believe in aliens. A lot of people don’t. The only way to find out if they are real is by SETI pretty much. Now if there are aliens in space and we are not alone chances are they aren’t how we think of them. They probably won’t be all green and evil. They probably won’t even be able to walk, but again that is what SETI and the other programs in space are trying to find out. Now if they come up short and find that there is not or never was anyone with us in the world then that would be a waste of a lot of money and time. Hey they just might find out that there is some form of intelligent life out there with us. A lot of people have claimed to be abducted by “aliens” and many have claimed to see UFO’s. Even one of my families friends have claimed to been abducted. She says this because she has scars on her body that she does not remember how she got them, so she thinks she was probed. I also claim to have seen a couple of UF... ... middle of paper ... ...ial life out there. A lot of radio scientists or astronomers are considering the construction of a kilometer sized telescope, a humongous sized instrument that could be of use in SETI. Another cool thing about SETI is that optical searching’s and experiments are already widely increasing in number and even sophistication. With all of this searching in light and rapid movement, and radio waves some scientists think that we might be getting so close to finding aliens that we could find proof as early as the twenty first century. So pretty much SETI is the search for any other life source such as aliens in our universe. With all of the technology we are way closer and more able to find easier than ever before. If there are aliens we should be able to find them pretty soon Works Cited : http://history.nasa.gov/seti.html http://www.seti.org.au/

The existence of life – Aliens, beyond our planet has been a controversial topic for several centuries, and is a debatable issue even today in the 21st century. What is our topic you may ask? Aliens, Do, Exist. According to theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, it would be improbable for life not to exist somewhere other than Earth. This is a bold claim, but there is evidence to support this statement. The evidence we seek is in the many Alien occurrences we have experienced throughout human history.
Some people believe we are not alone in the wide variety of planets, stars, and the solar system next door to us. Believing we aren’t the only ones stuck in space, but having more power than us where they might watch over us. The strong belief created a phenomenon more than the sci-fi culture itself; government cover-ups can’t hide these visitors anymore.
The thought of infinite space is a scary and exciting thought. The thought that stars, planets, and even suns exist beyond the sights of our strongest telescopes is a very intriguing thought. Some theories suggest parallel universes exist while others suggest that intelligent life is living exactly the way humans on earth live today on far away planets. Perhaps the most frightening and yet thrilling thought of all is the thought of extraterrestrial life amongst the stars, visiting earth, and every so often, being spotted or caught on camera. These interactions are considered extremely rare and witnesses to the events refer to themselves as lucky. Religions have even been created at the thought of aliens. The search for
The universe, a vast, ever-expanding space full of mystery, just waiting to be discovered. With the mystery comes speculation; a multitude of researchers focus on one question, are there extraterrestrials out there? While highly controversial, scientists with the help of SETI have proved that this is possible. In order to be prepared for the possible ETs, researchers at SETI work constantly to find answers. Because of the growing research that Extraterrestrial Intelligence is possible, SETI, a credible organization, should receive funding from the government to continue their research.
Aliens. Extraterrestrial life. Humans have always had an interest in extraterrestrial intelligence. The speculation of extraterrestrial intelligence is popular these days both in mass culture and in science but belief in extraterrestrial intelligence goes back into ancient times. Extraterrestrial life is defined as life that does not originate from Earth. With the fascination of aliens among human, many became theorist. They believe that extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago sharing their expertise with early civilizations which forever changed the course of human history (Ancient Aliens). An example of this is Stone-hedge. How exactly did human place these heavy giant rocks on top of each other without any heavy machinery or tools. The only explanations one can come up with is with the help of extraterrestrials. So because of this, people have always tried to get in contact with extraterrestrial beings since the day of man.
The scientists explain that atmospheric phenomena like sun dogs, storm phenomena like ball lightning and stratospheric discharge, astronomical phenomena like auroras, meteorite storms and bolloids are all things that many of common people are not familiar with. The use of man made objects like weather balloons, test aircraft, reentry vehicles from space not to mention practical jokes also deceive many people (Vallee, 1990). For instance, between 1950 and 1971, there were 14,813 sightings reported to authorities, and 10,625 of them (95%) have been identified and explained by natural phenomena or man-made influences. The fact that people do not know what something is that they see in the sky, does not automatically mean that there is an alien involved, and in fact it is obvious that most of the time it is a case of the observer simply not being informed about the world around them (Floyd, 1993).
Located 90 miles north of Las Vegas sits a high-security military base widely known as Area 51. For decades people have had suspicions about whether or not alien life forms exist and if so, whether or not they are imprisoned at Area 51. This curiosity has been fueled by not only interest in extraterrestrials, but also reported sightings of foreign life forms not from planet Earth. The conspiracies, other life forms exist and are being kept at military base, have largely been fueled by the government’s involvement in nearly all reported sightings. Area 51 not only has discovered other forms of life from outer space but also is most likely conducting strange experiments there.
... highly equipped technology that humans do not have yet, while others insist these are just one of many hoaxes. Believing these are made by aliens will impact greatly on current society because the biggest religion in the world will be proved wrong. Some even say it is impossible for aliens to exist, but we must leave both options open, since we can never predict the future. Even a few hundred years ago, humans thought the earth was flat. Then we found out the earth is not the center of the universe. Recently, we can now travel to other stars and only collect samples. Because we know not even 1% about the universe, I think anything can be possible. Just a week ago, a news released that Vaticans are holding a conference for possible alien beings(fox). Maybe, we humans are just getting adopted to accept other intelligent beings as planned by unknown sources.
There are numerous of different movies, books, and TV shows on how humans think aliens interact, look similar to, and what the media portrays aliens to be like. Occasionally, most will stumble across news articles with a variety of related headings about aliens, UFO’s, or recent known abduction stories. Every person has their own theories and or thoughts on these basic questions: do aliens exist? Could the government be covering up real life “space ships” or encounters? Countless folks have claimed to witness or have fanciful stories that have fascinated countless while several others are turned away. There are Videos, pictures and pieces of physical evidence to support nearly all of these stories. Even more alarming,
More often than not, the best way to prove or disprove something is through the use of statistical data that has been collected over a period of several years. Although, there really is no way to collect statistical data on alien lifeforms, we are able to predict the probability of the existence of aliens. In 1961, an astronomer by the name of Frank Drake formulated an equation that could estimate the probability of alien life. This equation (N=R_* f_p n_e f_l f_i f_c L), includes several factors. These factors include the number of civilizations that are detectable in the milky way galaxy, the rate
Humanity has long longed to the stars with wonder and amazement. Using the stars for everything from understanding our purpose, to finding our way when lost in the night, space is a large part of our daily lives. Within the last 100 years, our technology has allowed humanity to search deeper into the space surrounding our planet earth. Most people have shown more desire than others to explore the limits of our galaxy.
It’s been an age old question on whether or not we were alone in the universe, in my opinion it’s highly unlikely that we are the only species in the universe. Not only did the concept bring us some of the best creative ideas in the realms of movies, novels and TV shows. While aliens affected us socially, the term alien has been put to many things from expressions to a classification of immigrant. My opinion on this subject (as stated) is for the idea of aliens. I believe that we're not alone because it wouldn’t make sense if we were the only species in the universe, we may not be able to see them, and we probably can’t even comprehend them.
