Scientists are out yet again with new reports on how humanity may discover the existence of alien life. This time though their revelation seems a little more possible than the last.
Researchers are out this week with another marvelous clue in the hunt for intelligent life. According to researchers, humanity may need to point their focus for alien life to none other than Dyson Spheres. Dyson Spheres were first explored in the astronomy community in 1960 by researcher Freeman J. Dyson.
What Freeman Dyson did in his Dyson sphere paper is of course point out that, actually, we might want to look for industrial activities that are not intended to communicate,’ Anders Sandberg said in an interview with Vice.
‘It’s just that [aliens] create structures that we would not normally see in nature and that would be very visible because they’re so extreme. And that was a crazy idea back in the sixties and seventies. People were not really ready for it.’
‘A key question is, what do you use your Dyson Sphere for? And I think you can find a bunch of very different uses,’ said Sandberg. ‘Energy collection is just one. You can, of course, talk about it as living space, which is usually what science fiction tends to do, because it creates an amazing sense of awe when you get so much space.’
Humanity itself at our current stage likely would never be able to accomplish such a feat on our own unless we greatly advance. That feat alone has led many to believe that if they’re out there they may be hiding within the massive Dyson like spheres.
