Nasa is preparing to embark on an ambitious bid to discover evidence of intelligent life living out in deep space. It has joined up with the Breakthrough Listen initiative to launch a search for ‘technosignatures’ – the traces of technology which indicate the existence of ‘advanced extraterrestrial civilisations’. These could include massive structures like Dyson Spheres, which are hypothetical ‘megastructures’ built around stars to harvest their power. But technosignatures could be signals which seem to be produced by artificial transmitters or perhaps even the engines of alien spaceships. Earth has been spewing radio waves and other signals into Earth for decades now, although the vast distances involved in space travel mean aliens would have to be living pretty close to us to have detected them. The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) drive will utilise the power of the TESS satellite, which is currently searching for planets.
