The astronomers have made public a unique catalog. It reflects all cosmic objects that may be the potential homeland of an alien mind. The catalog is included in the implementation of the ten-year project “Breakthrough Initiatives”, which has been aimed at searching for extraterrestrial intelligence since 2015. The project combines the most modern software and all the data that has ever been obtained by leading observatories around the world to detect any signs of extraterrestrial technological activity.
Over the past two years, the project has collaborated favorably with NASA. Recently, the scientists involved in the project announced the release of the Exotica catalog. It is of particular interest to astronomers who are in search of technosignatures and extraterrestrial intelligence.
Brian C. Lucky, an astronomer at the SETI Research Center at Berkeley, noted that the new catalog is extremely important, it includes amazing space objects that, as you know, cannot contain any life forms.
But these conclusions were made long ago, when the science did not possess modern technologies, and therefore there is a reason and reason to find a new evidence. The universe is extremely huge, and maybe infinite. The scientists are aware that the estimated diameter of the universe is about 96 billion light years.
But at the same time, it can be seen that Einstein's theory of relativity claims a constant speed of light, it can also be a cosmic absolute. That fact calls for more careful monitoring of outer space, since any noise effect can be signs of life.
Despite all the possibilities of space exploration, the Earth is still the only known planet where life exists. Other forms of life can be completely different from those that people are used to seeing.
Perhaps they exist under extreme temperature conditions, which are not considered by astronomers as a habitat for life. And such atmospheric objects may include even the atmospheres of hot Jupiters or the exceptionally cold outer zones of the Stellar System.
