This question detikINET throw it at Thomas Djamaluddin Astronomy-Astrophysics Researcher, at the Aviation and Space Research Organization (EIGHT). According to him, looking for aliens in his astronomical language is ‘looking for an exoplanet similar to the earth that can be thought to have life’.
“When the 3.8 m telescope at the National Observatory is operational, it can be used to search for exoplanets. Exoplanets are planets outside the solar system, namely planets orbiting stars outside the Sun,” said Thomas via text message, Sunday (10/31/2010). 2021).
Because it’s a ‘quest alien‘ To be precise, Indonesia has not started yet because the 3.8 meter telescope is not yet operational. In addition, Thomas said that looking for an intelligent life cannot be done directly and conclusively.
“Until now in the whole world there is no precise method to find it. Searching for non-natural radio waves with large radio telescopes has so far no conclusive results,” he said.
So far, scientist trying to pick up a signal from a reliable radio. One of the things considered as ‘evidence’ of the existence of others besides us in the universe is the signal that was picked up in early December 2020 from Proxima Centauri.
Proxima Centauri is only 4.2 light-years away and holds both gas and rock. In addition, it is 17% larger than Earth and ‘coincidentally’ is in the habitable zone of its star — which means there is liquid water there.
