Proxima Centauri: The Closest Star Image Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA
Explanation: Does the closest star to our Sun have planets? No one is sure --
but you can now follow frequent updates of a new search that is taking place during the first few months of this year.
The closest star, Proxima Centauri, is the nearest member of the Alpha Centauri star system.
Light takes only 4.24 years to reach us from Proxima Centauri. This small red star, captured in the center of the featured
image by the Hubble Space Telescope, is so faint that it was only discovered in 1915 and is only visible through a telescope.
Telescope-created X-shaped diffraction spikes surround Proxima Centauri, while several stars further out in our Milky Way Galaxy
are visible in the background. The brightest star in the Alpha Centauri system is quite similar to our Sun,
has been known as long as recorded history, and is the third brightest star in the night sky.
The Alpha Centauri system is primarily visible from Earth's Southern Hemisphere. Starting last week,
the European Southern Observatory's Pale Red Dot project began investigating slight changes in Proxima Centauri
to see if they result from a planet -- possibly an Earth-sized planet. Although unlikely, were a modern civilization found
living on a planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, its proximity makes it a reasonable possibility that humanity could communicate with them.
#PaleRedDot : Follow the search for planets around Proxima Centauri.

A series of images taken between November 2013 to April 2015 with the Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) on the Gemini South telescope in Chile shows the exoplanet β Pic b orbiting the star β Pictoris, which lies over 60 light-years from Earth. In the images, the star is at the centre of the left-hand edge of the frame; it is hidden by the Gemini Planet Imager’s coronagraph. We are looking at the planet’s orbit almost edge-on; the planet is closer to the Earth than the star. The images are based on observations described in a paper published in the Astrophysical Journal, 16 September 2015 and whose lead author is Maxwell Millar-Blanchaer. GPI is a groundbreaking instrument that was developed by an international team led by Stanford University’s Prof. Bruce Macintosh (a U of T alumnus) and the University of California Berkeley’s Prof. James Graham (former director of the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics, U of T).

Wolf 1061c The planet, more than four times the mass of the Earth, is one of three that the team detected around a red dwarf star called Wolf 1061.
"It is a particularly exciting find because all three planets are of low enough mass to be potentially rocky and have a solid surface,
and the middle planet, Wolf 1061c, sits within the 'Goldilocks' zone where it might be possible for liquid water --
and maybe even life -- to exist," says lead study author UNSW's Dr. Duncan Wright.
Video on the WEB Telescope searching for exoplanets
The $8.8 billion JWST features 18 hexagonal mirror segments that will work together
to form one 21-foot-wide (6.5 meters) mirror � larger than any other mirror that's ever flown in space,
NASA officials said. (For comparison, the agency's iconic Hubble Space Telescope sports an 8-foot, or 2.4 m, primary mirror.)
JWST is optimized to view in infrared light. The telescope should be able to do lots of different things during its operational life,
researchers say, including scanning the atmospheres of alien planets for oxygen and other gases that could be produced by living organisms.
(Such delicate work is best performed by space telescopes, which don't have to look through Earth's atmosphere.)
Video News File: Kepler Discovers First Earth-size Planet in the Habitable Zone of Another Star
Published on Apr 17, 2014 [Video News File; media resource preview] NASA's Kepler Space Telescope has discovered the first validated Earth-size planet orbiting in the habitable zone of a distant star,
an area where liquid water might exist on its surface. The planet, Kepler-186f, is ten percent larger in size than Earth and orbits its parent star,
Kepler-186, every 130 days. The star, located about 500 light-years from Earth, is classified as an M1 dwarf and is half the size and mass of our sun.

The graphic tells NASA's Kepler spacecraft's story by the numbers from the moment it began hunting for planets
outside our solar system on May 12, 2009. From the trove of data collected, we have learned that planets are common,
that most sun-like stars have at least one planet and that nature makes planets with unimaginable diversity.

Disk Detective aims to find two types of developing planetary environments: YSO disks, which are less than 5 million years old and contains
large quantities of gas, and debris disks, which tend to be older than 5 million years, and contain belts of rocky or icy debris.

Is there life on other planets, somewhere in this enormous Universe? That’s probably the most compelling question we can ask.
A lot of space science and space missions are pointed directly at that question. The Kepler mission is designed to find exoplanets, which are planets orbiting other stars. More specifically,
its aim is to find planets situated in the habitable zone around their star. And it’s done so.
The Kepler mission has found 297 confirmed and candidate planets that are likely in the habitable zone of their star,
and it’s only looked at a tiny patch of the sky.
This artist’s impression shows a sunset seen from the super-Earth Gliese 667 Cc.

This illustration shows a star surrounded by a protoplanetary disk. Material from the thick disk flows along
the star’s magnetic field lines and is deposited onto the star’s surface. When material hits the star, it lights up brightly.
The star's irregular illumination allows astronomers to measure the gap between the disk and the star by using a
technique called "photo-reverberation" or "light echoes." First, astronomers look at how much time it takes for light from
the star to arrive at Earth. Then, they compare that with the time it takes for light from the star to bounce off the
inner edge of the disk and then arrive at Earth. That time difference is used to measure distance, as the speed of light is constant. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech Last Updated: April 26, 2016 Editor: Tony Greicius
Astronomers can use light echoes to measure the distance from a star to its surrounding protoplanetary disk.

A lecture given by SETI scientist, Dr. Jill Tarter at the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, Virginia on Monday night October 27th
saw some uncomfortable moments when an audience member confronted the celebrated astronomer with notions that the organization was
involved in a cover-up of what he thought was the reality of an extraterrestrial presence on planet Earth. SETI is an acronym
for a group of radio astronomers meaning: The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence.
This artist concept illustrates how two large, planet-sized objects could collide to create clumps of material
in orbit around a star. They’d also create a lot of dust, which would glow in infrared light, something not seen around the Kepler star.

Something other than a transiting planet makes KIC 8462852 fluctuate wildly and unpredictably in brightness.
Astronomers suspect a crumbled comet, but the cause remains a mystery.
This illustration shows a star behind a shattered comet. Observations of the star KIC 8462852
by NASA’s Kepler and Spitzer space telescopes suggest that its unusual light signals are likely from dusty comet fragments,
which blocked the light of the star as they passed in front of it in 2011 and 2013. The comets are thought to be traveling
around the star in a very long, eccentric orbit.
This week astronomers announced an unusual transit signal from another star. Although it’s most
likely a natural phenomenon, one remote possibility is that this is some kind of alien megastructure.
Freeman Dyson and others have considered this idea for decades. Today we’ll talk about the kinds of structures
that aliens might want to build.

What Is an Exoplanet? Alien hunters have been training their telescopes on the mysterious KIC 8462852 star system
for more than than two weeks, and so far it looks like extraterrestrials aren't home.
However, alien enthusiast claim that the alien civilization might be advanced enough to use other means of communication than laser pulses and radio waves, so they're still holding out hope that E.T. might be in our vicinity. A mysterious star that erratically dims by almost a quarter as a swarm of unknown objects passes in front of it -
leading to speculations that artificial objects could be orbiting the star - continues to refuse to give up its secrets

This morning, video producer Gavin Heffernan dropped EarthSky a note, saying: … enclosed is a link to DISHDANCE, a SETI [Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence] tribute and timelapse medley of radio astronomy facilities … This timelapse was filmed as part of our ongoing crowdfunded quest to explore the effects and dangers of urban light pollutionin contrast with some of the most incredible Dark Sky Preserves in North America. This video was shot by my Skyglow partner Harun Mehmedinovic (www.Bloodhoney.com) and myself (SunchaserPictures.com).

Of course, there are whole websites devoted to arguing the case for long-lost civilizations on the deserts of Mars, complete with heavily re-processed photos that owe more to the imagination of contemporary humans than to the ingenuity of extraterrestrial architects and engineers. Yet there is also some serious and well- considered work being done in the field of what has been called SETA (Search for Extraterrestrial Artifacts).

UFO watchers have found a bone on Mars, claimed Chron.com. It appears to be like a thigh bone.
This report comes after claims on recent sightings of UFO.
None of the National Aeronautic and Space Administration scientists have spoken about it,
but the news has been going viral. In photos taken by the Mars Curiosity Rover by NASA,
one of them shows a mysterious bone on the Red Planet.
The object certainly resembles a fossilized femur,
but the odds that it's anything other than a weird-looking rock are, well, astronomical.
Over the years, people eyeing pictures from Mars have claimed
to have seen everything from an iguana to a finger to weird faces.
But NASA hasn't been too impressed.
Video Caption: The sparks that appear on the baseball-sized rock (starting at :17)
result from the laser of the ChemCam instrument on NASA�s Curiosity Mars rover hitting the rock.
Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS ChemCam is used to determine the composition of Martian rocks and soils at a distance of up to 25 feet (8 meters)
yielding preliminary data for the scientists and engineers to decide if a target warrants up close investigation
and in rare cases sampling and drilling activities.

Jon M. Jenkins - Jon is the Analysis Lead for Kepler, which means that he heads up a group of about two dozen scientists
and programmers who designed and built the software that makes this dramatic search for other worlds possible.
With a brightness precision of 20 parts per million, Kepler should be able to discover planets that are the same size as the rocky,
inner orbs of our own solar system. By making an inventory of such worlds, Kepler will answer one of the most intriguing questions in astrobiology:
are Earth-size planets abundant or rare?
Published on Dec 4, 2015 Dr. Mullally will present the 7th catalog of Planet Candidates found by Kepler. Uniformly vetted lists of detected planet candidates
are a key step towards measuring the occurrence rates of planets, as well as providing interesting individual objects for potential follow-up.
The 7th catalog includes 8826 objects of interest, of which 4696 are deemed viable planet candidates.
This catalog is the first to be uniformly vetted in an entirely objective manner by algorithm,
instead of by manual inspection. This algorithmic approach enables us to test our results against simulated data sets allowing us
to measure our performance for the first time. Dr. Mullally will discuss some novel features of the vetting pipeline,
discuss the performance and limitations, and highlight some interesting individual planets.

Published on May 11, 2015 Professor Shelley Wright is an astrophysicist, recently at the University of Toronto, and now faculty at the
University of California, San Diego. Here she talks about her research into infrared and visible light SETI.
She explains why if ETs are trying to communicate over long distances, they may be using IR lasers to do it.
She was a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley from 2009 - 2011 and continues to collaborate with Berkeley SETI Research Center scientists.

Published on Nov 10, 2014 For over a half century, astronomers involved in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI)
have scanned the skies for signals from distant civilizations. Would humans be able to decode information-rich signals
from another planet? Could we create a �universal language� that would be meaningful to an independently evolved civilization?
To help answer these questions, on November 10-11 2014 the SETI Institute convened a multidisciplinary,
international workshop at its headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Speakers from six countries drew on disciplines ranging from astronomy and mathematics, to anthropology and linguistics,
as they debated the best ways to create meaningful messages.
While the two-day workshop was closed to the public, all talks will be posted on the SETI Institute�s YouTube channel.
On the day following the workshop, several of the speakers will summarize the key ideas discussed
as part of the SETI Institute�s public weekly colloquium series, held on November 12, at 12:00 noon.

Published on Jan 22, 2016 Kevin Luong joined Berkeley SETI Research Center as an intern in summer 2015. Kevin worked with David Anderson to revise the NTPCKR
system to run on cloud computing servers. There are still a few kinks to sort out, but if it works, this should let us run our data
base through NTPCKR in a few weeks instead of more then a year. Kevin transferred to UCLA in the fall, but is continuing to work with
SETI to explore cloud computing for other projects.
We'll be launching an expanded undergraduate internship program later this year. Follow us on social media for more details

Berkeley SETI Research Center's Dr. Steve Croft, in collaboration with colleagues at UC Museum of Paleontology
and the Space Sciences Laboratory's "Multiverse" education group have put together an educational site focusing on the
conditions needed for life to arise in the Universe. Although aimed primarily at high school teachers and their students,
this material may be of interest to broader audiences. In the "Research Profiles" section of the site you can also find an
interview with BSRC's Dr. Eric Korpela, Director of SETI@home.

The search for life in the solar system and beyond has to date
been governed by a model based on what we know about life on
Earth (terran life). Most of NASA's mission planning is focused on
locations where liquid water is possible and emphasizes searches for
structures that resemble cells in terran organisms. It is possible, however,
that life exists that is based on chemical reactions that do not involve carbon
compounds, that occurs in solvents other than water, or that involves
oxidation-reduction reactions without oxygen gas. To assist NASA incorporate
this possibility in its efforts to search for life, the NRC was asked to carry out
a study to evaluate whether nonstandard biochemistry might support life in solar system
and conceivable extrasolar environments, and to define areas to guide research in this area.
This book presents an exploration of a limited set of hypothetical chemistries of life, a review
of current knowledge concerning key questions or hypotheses about nonterran life, and suggestions
for future research.

How about Alien Presence on the Moon?
The $600 million Kepler mission launched in March 2009, with the primary goal of determining how commonly Earth-like planets
occur throughout the Milky Way galaxy. Kepler hunts for alien worlds by searching for "transits,"
noting the tiny brightness dips caused when a planet crosses the face of its host star from the observatory's perspective.
This artist’s concept depicts one possible appearance of the planet Kepler-452b,
the first near-Earth-size world to be found in the habitable zone of star that is similar to our sun.
