Stretching the Search for Signs of Life
I found an article written by Dennis Overbye which described new technology that will help us find things that we could not before. They are new radio telescopes that will help us discover things like black holes eating each other and dark galaxies that do not contain stars. Another advantage of this technology is that it allows scientists to view large portions of the sky at once. They are also hoping the radio signals will somehow make contact with some form of extraterrestrial intelligence. They said that the radio can detect a signal from as far as 500 light years away. It is amazing how are technology is always expanding and giving us new opportunities.
