Aliens Are Coming To Earth? Advanced Extraterrestrial Organisms Can Detect Earth Through Radio Signals Leaked by Mobile Phone Towers-REPORTS
Mike Garrett shared that the Earth is already unusually bright in the radio portion of the spectrum
Signals play a vital role in any civilization which helps the species communicate with each other. Our mobile phone towers might be beacons that give Earthlings away to intelligent extraterrestrials looking for other evolved lifeforms in the galaxy.
Interestingly, NASA launched two Voyager spacecraft into deep space around the ‘80s. Onboard both were gold discs with music, greetings and sounds from Earth — a message to aliens.
Now, according to a recent finding, powerful extraterrestrial civilizations in surrounding star systems are likely already capable of detecting radio signals coming from cell phone towers. As the strength of these signals increases, the signature of humans will be easier to spot throughout the cosmos.
Mike Garrett, the director of Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at The University of Manchester, shared that the Earth is already unusually bright in the radio portion of the spectrum, and if the trend continues, we could become easily observable by any advanced civilization with the right technology.
The latest research was headed by Garrett and released in February in ‘Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society’. The researchers have tested the difficulty of detecting radio signals from other planets by simulating the leaking of radio signals from cell phone towers using crowd-sourced data.
It was discovered that the planet’s radio leakage from mobile phone towers, satellite communications, and internet transmissions is one of the several indications of highly evolved life.
The researchers claimed that these signals may be picked up by hypothetical civilizations residing around neighbouring stars, such as Barnard's star, a red dwarf star 6 light-years away that may be home to a massive planet similar to Earth.
On Earth, these radio messages pose a great threat as a portion of the entire volume of radio transmissions also escapes into outer space. A majority of the radio emissions from Earth still consist of waves from military radar. The second place has been quickly taken over by cell power networks.
Each cell tower transmits radio signals with a strong range of 100-200 Watts. It may be argued that radio signals totalling a few gigawatts are blasted into space due to the enormous number of mobile towers on the Earth.
