Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (S.E.T.I)
Have you seen movie ‘Contact’ if you haven’t then you need to. Im creating a single article based on vision of this movie. Jodie foster stars as main character, she is brilliant in this film, making it so powerful, and full of inspiration.
Have you ever wondered what is out there? Have you ever been curious to know how this all began? Don’t be put of by little green men at all. Over past years, many television programmes show us countless possibilities that exist to what happened in creation of universe. It’s so big that I guess we could never reach end, if there indeed is an end.
One television programme, that got my attention, was search for a planet that harboured life, like our own planet. It had a term used as ‘the wobble effect’ meaning same effects as planet earth. There been a lot of searches for planets that sustain some similarity to our own planet.
If S.E.T.I project, still running online today, picked up a reading of a signal from outer reaches of universe, then Id be very curious to know what it is about, or what it means. There have been some signals that have been intercepted and sent to us, but even our modern day machines cannot understand it.
I wish that in my lifetime, we get some great discoveries of stars and skies; I would like to see a planet discovered, creating life like earth, with water, and oxygen. As this planet is slowly or in this day an age quiet fast, using up its resources, so we must find another planet, before we die, otherwise we could as a species be wiped out before we’ve even began to search heavens.
It would be exciting to know that there is life on other far away planets. Imagine if we could contact them, what would they look like, or what would there advancements be in terms of technology. If we think about it, do UFO’s really exist, have people mainly from USA been abducted. If alien race has advanced machines, then maybe this is true. Thinking of it in reality, if things like this happened, and were not denied by governments, then truth be told, it would cause panic, on a global scale, wouldn’t it? But if stories are not true, then it’s like loosing hope of ever finding, beings from distant galaxies.
Suppose our planet receives a message from another part of universe. We decode it, what would we want it to say? Like a quote from ‘Contact’ movie, if it’s just us, then it’s an awful waste of space. That to me is true. Why would there be a massive universe with just us in, lonely planet earth? It would seem lonely. Like thoughts of there being a god. There are different gods. We’ve never seen him, but to some, who pray and worship, they feel comfort in knowing that there is a powerful being. If there is an alien race, do they believe in a god, or have they never come across such an idea? Does there history tell of a man similar to Jesus?
Know one can prove that there is a god up in heaven, or devil. So how can we believe that aliens exist? I think there is a fine line, which separates this. Maybe miracles happen, prayers are answered, is this due to us being able to make them happen? Could we ask god to keep us alive forever, and never die? NO, as to us in material world it’s impossible. For so much death and destruction, for all that pray for peace and comfort, do we actually get it? Speaking from heart I believe that to distant future, maybe very soon, we will be in contact with another species. We will receive a message. We have not been far enough into space to find other places, so we can only assume there is going to be life. But say on other side of galaxy, there is another sun, where there is a planet same distance from sun as we are, in protective layer, which cannot be damaged by radiation, that maybe supporting life like us. Doesn’t that sound brilliant? There has to be. We cannot just be only galaxy to have a sun, in expanding universe then it must be there.
If all computers in world right now connected to internet, and downloaded S.E.T.I programme to intercept and download transmissions from S.E.T.I satellites then we could interpret more of codes that are given to us. We have to think of bigger picture don’t we? We have to think beyond our planet, think beyond our sight.
I like to think of theories and see from different points of view. So imagine Roswell accident did happen. An alien craft landed on earth in USA, and government kept it to study there technology, by keeping it in area 51, which is heavily guarded. If sightings of aliens have increased since then, maybe crash landing was true, as alien race are searching for there lost craft. This could be true!
I know that younger generation after me will continue to discover more of space, but it’s like winning a race, we need to try harder and go faster to reach end. We need to build a bigger telescope to search far beyond than we’ve ever done, build a space station, with a satellite on it, which can search 360 degrees whilst rotating round earth! A massive project that could combine entire earth’s wealth to design and build ultimate satellite to penetrate outer limits.
What would our purpose be hear whilst living on this planet, just to earn our money and die. Or actually make a difference to human race. It would be like star trek, with different colonies, on different galaxies, where we can support life on space shuttles for years, and then recycle materials to produce new ones without new materials being added, 100% recycling. We could go to planets way beyond imagination.
