Hunting Exoplanets - NASA INTRODUCTION BRIEF


Published on Apr 23, 2016 The search for near-Earth-size exoplanets is on. Although 1000’s of exoplanets have been discovered, few are near-Earth-size. But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist…
Now, teams at JPL are working on creative new technologies to not only discover these elusive planets but expand our search
for signs of life beyond our solar system. NASA 360 joins Stuart Shaklan of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory as he discusses future of exoplanet discovery.

Spinning Worlds: Orrery of Kepler’s Exoplanets, by Nancy Atkinson on December 1, 2015


Published on Nov 30, 2015 All of the Kepler multi-planet systems (1705 planets in 685 systems as of 24 November 2015)
on the same scale as the Solar System (the dashed lines). The size of the orbits are all to scale,
but the size of the planets are not. For example, Jupiter is actually 11x larger than Earth, but that
scale makes Earth-size planets almost invisible (or Jupiters annoyingly large).
The orbits are all synchronized such that Kepler observed a planet transit every time it hits an angle of 0 degrees
(the 3 o'clock position on a clock).
Planet colors are based on their approximate equilibrium temperatures, as shown in the legend. Source code to make your own can be found here: Category Science & Technology

Kepler Orrery II


Uploaded on Feb 28, 2012 Visualization of the planetary systems discovered by Kepler (Batalha et al.), i.e. those targets with more than one transiting object.
There are 885 planet candidates in 361 systems, doubling the number of systems in the original Kepler Orrery. In this video,
orbits are to scale with respect to each other, and planets are to scale with respect to each other (a different scale from the orbits).
The colors are in order of semi-major axis. Two-planet systems (242 in all) have a yellow outer planet;
3-planet (85) green, 4-planet (25) light blue, 5-planet (8) dark blue, 6-planet (1, Kepler-11) purple.
At the end of the video the catalog numbers appear (Kepler Object of Interest, KOI).

ESO's Pale Red Dot Project

Astronomy Picture of the day, January 18, 2016
Proxima Centa

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.

A good possibility of Habitable Planets?

The nearby triple star system Gliese 667, taken on June 29, 2013. Credit and copyright: Efrain Morales, Jaicoa Observatory, Puerto Rico. Here is a great new observation of the triple star system Gliese 667 from astrophotographer Efrain Morales of the Jaicoa Observatory in Puerto Rico. Recently, one of the stars, 667 C was found to have perhaps seven planets orbiting it! If all seven planets are confirmed, the system would consist of three habitable-zone super-Earths, two hot planets further in, and two cooler planets further out. Scientists say that the ?f? planet is ?a prime candidate for habitability.?

SETI talk leads to confrontation over nature of extraterrestrial life (Video)?

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.

Astrophysicist René Heller Sets ‘Alien’ Binary Code Test - Could You Crack It?
‘What is the typical body height of our interstellar counterparts?’

The challenge is as follows: This is a call for a fun scientific challenge. Suppose a telescope on Earth receives a series of pulses from a fixed,
unresolved source beyond the solar system. The source is a star about 50 light years from Earth. The pulses are
in the form of short/long signals
and they are received in a very narrow band around an electromagnetic
frequency of 452.12919 MHz. A computer algorithm identifies the artificial nature of the pulses.
It turns out the pulses carry a message.
The pulses signify binary digits. Suppose further that you were, by whatsoever reason,
put in charge of decoding this message. If you successfully decrypted the message,
you should be able to answer the following questions:
  • 1. What is the typical body height of our interstellar counterparts?
  • 2. What is their typical lifetime?
  • 3. What is the scale of the devices they used to submit their message?
  • 4. Since when have they been communicating interstellar?
  • 5. What kind of object do they live on?
  • 6. How old is their stellar system?
The competition closes on 3 June, 2016

This illustration shows a star behind a shattered comet. Observations of the star KIC 8462852

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.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 388: Megastructures by FRASER CAIN on OCTOBER 19, 2015

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.

SETI Researchers Find No Sign of Aliens at KIC 8462852 ... Yet by Keith Wagstaff


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.

SETI says KIC 8462852 isn't sending Extraterrestrial Laser Pulses

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
after a search for laser pulses from the system turned up empty.

"Still Most Mysterious Star in Universe"
--SETI Telescope Array Followup Fails To Detect Megatructure Swarm May 10, 2016


Even if aliens are not involved, Tabby's star remains "the most mysterious star in the universe"
as Yale astronomer Tabetha Boyajian described it in a TED talk she gave last February.
"The dips found by Kepler are real. Something seems to be transiting in front of this star
and we still have no idea what it is!" says German astronomer Michael Hippke.

The most remarkable of these fluctuations consisted of dozens of uneven, unnatural-looking dips
that appeared over a 100-day period indicating that a large number of irregularly shaped objects
had passed across the face of the star and temporarily blocked some of the light coming from it.

The attention caused scientists at the SETI Institute to train its Alien Telescope Array
on the star to see if they could detect any radio signals indicating the presence of an alien civilization.
In November, 2015 it reported finding "no such evidence" of signals with an artificial origin.

decline during the later period of observation. Credit: Montet & Simon 2016 As Dr. Montet told Universe Today via email: “Every 30 minutes, Kepler measures the brightness of 160,000 stars in its field of view (100 square degrees,
or approximately as big as your hand at arm’s length). The Kepler data processing pipeline intentionally removes long-term trends,
because they are hard to separate from instrumental effects and they make the search for planets harder.
Once a month though, they download the full frame, so the brightness of every object in the field can be measured.
From this data, we can separate the instrumental effects from astrophysical effects by seeing how the brightness of any
particular star changes relative to all its neighboring stars.”

Astronomers Eavesdrop On Nearby Star System To Find Aliens

Scientists are doing everything they could to find proof of living aliens, even eavesdropping.
(Image used for representation only.) bertomic / Pixabay CC BY 1.0
Researchers on a hunt for extraterrestrial intelligence have reportedly taken the help
of a powerful radio telescope to tune in to a neighboring star system, which is located relatively near to our planet.
The aim of the scientists is to detect any sound, howsoever weak, that could signal the existence of an alien civilization.
Astronomers from the SETI Institute used the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) in California to eavesdrop on Trappist 1,
a red dwarf star system that has at least three habitable exoplanets to see if it is transmitting radio waves. Last year Kepler had detected a mysterious transit signal from a star known as Tabby's star,
officially called KIC 8462852. The transit, which basically measures the dimness in the brightness of a star when a planet orbits it,
was nothing like ever seen before because the brightness dimmed by 20 percent. Scientists were puzzled by the occurrence,
and suggested that a swarm of comets may have been the cause of the strange signal.

Dishdance, a tribute to radio telescopes
This new and beautiful video – called Dishdance – is part of project Skyglow.
It’s a beautiful timelapse medley of radio astronomy facilities.


NOTE TO OUR READERS … When this video was released earlier today, it featured the voice of the late Carl Sagan
speaking about the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). The Carl Sagan folks – Druyan-Sagan Associates in Ithaca, New York –
have asked that the voiceover be removed and want 6-8 weeks to evaluate whether it can be included here.
Maybe Sagan’s voice will return to enhance this video, but, in the meantime, enjoy it. It’s still an awesome video.
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.

SETI has new eyes on the skies Researchers resume the Search
for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence by using the precursor to the SKA


An Murchison Widefield Array radio telescope tile photographed with a "breakaway" hill in the background. Image: MWA The first modern Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (SETI) experiment at low radio frequencies is underway,
as researchers utilise the capabilities of the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) to search the skies for the tell-tale signs
of an advanced civilisation. SETI experiments using radio telescopes first started in 1960 when Cornell University astronomer Frank Drake
used the Green Bank telescope in West Virginia to examine two nearby stars. Since then a number of programmes,
such as the Million-channel ExtraTerrestrial Assay (META) programme and
SERENDIP (Search for Extraterrestrial Radio Emissions from Nearby Developed Intelligent Populations)
plus offshoots of this experiment, have continued to search the skies ever since.

Leg Bone on Mars - Mars Curiosity Anomalies 2014


By Afza Fathima | August 21, 2014 1:09 PM EST
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.

Astronomers have taken a close-up timelapse image of the fast-rotating star zeta Andromedae. Starspots can be seen clearly.
Credit: Rachael Roettenbacher, John Monnier, et al. Astronomers at the University of Michigan have taken close-up pictures of a nearby star that show starspots—sunspots outside our solar system.
The researchers have used a technique called interferometry to build essentially the first time lapse of zeta Andromedae
across one of its 18-day rotations. Zeta Andromedae is about 181 light-years away in the northern constellation Andromeda.
A paper on the findings is published in the current issue of Nature. See more

Do Any Exoplanets Have Intelligent Occupants? (SETIcon 2)



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?

Planets Everywhere: The 7th Kepler Planet Catalog - Fergal Mullally (SETI Talks)


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.

Shelley Wright Visits Berkeley SETI


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.

Communicating Across the Cosmos Workshop (Seth Shostak)


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.

Meet the Interns - Kevin


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

SETI@home: Educational materials on life in the Universe


SETI@home: Educational materials on life in the Universe

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.

Steve Croft - Breakthrough Listen: Expanding the Search for Life Beyond Earth


Published on Jul 5, 2016 For millennia humans have gazed at the stars and asked, “Are we alone in the Universe?”. In the past few decades,
we have discovered that many of the pinpoints of light scattered across our night sky are suns that host worlds similar to our own.
Still, though, the question remains unanswered as to whether minds have arisen elsewhere, or if life as we know it is rare,
or indeed unique. Dr. Croft will describe some of the work taking place at UC Berkeley that attempts to answer this question.
These efforts include one of the largest computing projects in existence, as well as the recently-launched $100 million Breakthrough Listen project
that dramatically expands the search, and applies modern Silicon Valley techniques to the data analysis.
Dr. Croft will also describe how the public can participate in this expansion of the search for life beyond Earth.
Dr. Steve Croft is a researcher in the UC Berkeley Astronomy Department. He grew up in England, where he received a PhD in astrophysics
from Oxford University in 2002, before moving to California to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Since 2007, Croft has been a researcher in the Astronomy Department at UC Berkeley. He splits his time between studies of supermassive black holes
and exotic transient events using the Murchison Widefield Array in the remote Western Australian outback, and research and public outreach
with Berkeley SETI Research Center and the Breakthrough Listen project. Dr. Croft has a deep commitment to public communication of science,
including through projects such as NOVAS, that connected underrepresented students to NASA science through art and visualization,
and as the founder and coordinator of the Science@Cal Lecture Series. Category Science & Technology License Creative Commons Attribution license (reuse allowed) Remix this video

SETI HEADLINES FROM NEWSINDEX.COM



This Section for Reports


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.
