As some of you probably know, the Square Kilometre Array will become the biggest radio telescope on Earth, with a collecting area of 1 square kilometre.

 

The construction will start in 2021 and the first light is expected to take place in 2027.

 

It will cover the frequencies from 50 MHz to 15 Ghz. But what I wanted to share with you guys is a new study about how far the SKA can 'listen'.

 

A recent study points out that the SKA could detect extraterrestrial airport radars 200 light years away.

What do you guys think?

This means that any advanced aliens within 60 light years of Earth can detect our radar emissions.

Unfortunately, there are no nearby civilizations.
It would be a huge achievement if we could find any form of life outside the Earth.

We don't know that for sure. Advanced alien civilizations could be in our neighboring star systems, but hidden from us thanks to technology.

Impossible. There is no chance that a neighboring civilization will not go unnoticed.
There is also no chance that advanced civilizations can simultaneously develop in close proximity to each other.

Perhaps we are alone in the entire Universe, which is very good.

What do you mean it's very good?

That means the whole universe is made for us. Unless you want to meet advanced arachnids that would use us for reproduction.
Ask Indians and Africans what happens when civilizations collide (bearing in mind that we are the same species in this case). Or ask horses and fur animals  :nyam: .
