Scientists take the aliens into a dense ring

February 21 2006

Astronomers have compiled a list of stars in an orbit that may be habitable planets. Scientists believe that they could harbor some form of life. Therefore, you just need to focus on its forms, to send signals and wait.

Space is a fantastic macrocosm. On unknown galaxies in hundreds and thousands of light years (light year - the path that light travels in a year, ie 9.461012 kilometers) from Earth, from which we can live unknown humanoids , said quite a lot. However, until now scientists did not have conclusive data about the existence of parallel worlds and civilizations. Like dozens of years ago, many hypotheses are based only on hunches and leaks from the secret archives of the security services.

Scientists and astrologers are tired of marking time, chasing the meteorites, artifacts, and wondering whether, after all, life on Mars. They emerged a proposal to focus on individual planets and stars, where presumably you can find uncharted interplanetary civilization and to join with her in contact.

In our own galaxy - more than 400 billion stars, which were open at different times. For some of the different points of the Earth is regularly monitored. However, as soon as the search of specialists will be concentrated mainly around the 10 elected planets. That they will discover and explore life.

Topping the list is a star called Epsilon Indi A, located at a distance of about 12 light years from Earth. Normal radio can reach the surface for about 12 years. If there still are intelligent beings, it may be possible to establish with them a message.

Another contender is the finest so-called Beta CVn, which resembles the sun and located at a distance of 26 light years away in the constellation Canes Venatici.

Followed by 51 Pegasus. It is on its orbit in 1995, was discovered the first planet outside the solar system - Enditem.

Also, special attention of scholars will focus on 18 Sco in the constellation of Scorpius - the star is very similar to our sun, as well as alpha Centauri B in the solar system, which is located closest to ours.

The list was compiled by astronomer at the Carnegie Institution in Washington and is part of the project, which is being developed jointly with the American space agency, as well as several other research groups. All of them are searching for planets, which could harbor some form of life . In addition, by 2020, will launch a new system of NASA - the locator of the terrestrial planets, which will operate two orbital observatory. They will monitor the response signals from some supposedly inhabited planet.

The stars stand out by scientists on several grounds: the similarity with the solar luminary and method of formation, by age, by their presence in the bowels of iron. Scientists believe it is the latter aspect is one of the most important.

Around stars are allocated special areas, which result from natural changes could be made for a fulfilling life.
