There are many wonders to what goes on in the darkness of outer space. The people have researched numerous things that happen in outer space. They have studied if there is water resources on different planets besides earth, if people could be able to survive and thrive on another planet besides the one we are living on now, and even if there are possible galaxies besides the Milky Way galaxy in space. One of of the biggest wonders is about alien life. Alien life has been questioned for a long time; Is there such more to life than we really know? Alien life is closer to existence in the world as discoveries and new evidence are being brought out from the darkness.
The talk about aliens has been around for many years, back to even the old age time when TVs didn’t even have color yet. What exactly is this extraterrestrial creature? The term alien originally means someone of a different country or foreign place. Extraterrestrial aliens are seen as outsiders from earth. How did the founding of the alien creature originate? Taking it a step back into the beginning, it was all within the curiosity of science. “Philosophers were debating the idea of whether other planets existed, and what kinds of “people” might reside there.”After the introduction to this new theory, researchers and scientists began to dive in deeper into the details. They related the idea in any possible way, “If God made us in his image, and that we lived on a planet orbiting the sun, then perhaps there were other “people” made by God, who lived elsewhere in the universe on alien planets similar to ours.” The ideal image of the extraterrestrial life had been born. It was set out to become a huge research topic starting in earlier centuries. Little was known that this idea was soon to become one of today’s most biggest wonders in the world. As we may interpret, researchers and actual people that study the extraterrestrial life have knowledge about it, but what does society believe when it comes to these creatures? Researchers have conducted surveys to the thoughts of where the people stand on the topic. “The findings of the survey ,conducted in 24 countries by research group Glocalities , showed that 47 percent of the survey’s 26,000 respondents believe “in the existence of intelligent alien civilizations in the universe.” The numbers show an impressive amount of population that show a high belief in extraterrestrials. There were more astonishing results when more part was taken in the survey. “And 61 percent responded “yes” when asked if they believe in “some form of life on other planets.”Among those who believe humans aren’t alone in the universe, 60 percent said we should try to communicate with extraterrestrial beings.”The high standard of numbers shows the thoughts and what actions the people in our society would like researchers to take when coming to the extraterrestrials. They are intrigued to know more about the huge wonder. What has lead to them to have such beliefs?
UFO sightings have been spotted since days of the world war. They have made the questioning of extraterrestrial aliens not so much of a question anymore. Society has portrayed the alien species as the flying saucer in space image to all around. As researchers have found many sightings on unidentified flying objects. Far back in the start of the 2000’s, The lights above New Jersey turnpike incident accounted in 2001. ” For around 15 minutes just after midnight, they marveled at the sight of strange orange-and-yellow lights in a V formation over the Arthur Kill Waterway between New York, and Carteret, New Jersey. Carteret Police Department’s Lt. Daniel Tarrant was one of the witnesses. Air-traffic controllers initially denied that any airplanes, military jets or space flights could have caused the mysterious lights, but a group known as the New York Strange Phenomena Investigators claimed to receive FAA radar data that corroborated the UFO sightings from that night.” . These sightings have helped researchers get more closer look at how and for what reason outer space creatures have tried to roam the earth. Another incident happened a couple years after the New Jersey one, USS Nimitz encounter. “A few moments, a white Tic Tac-shaped object appeared above the water. It had no visible markings to indicate an engine, wings or windows, and infrared monitors didn’t reveal any exhaust. Squadron 41 attempted to intercept the craft, but it accelerated away, re-appearing on radar 60 miles away. It moved three times the speed of sound and twice the speed of the fighter jets.” The outer life has been identified many times, researches have not yet discovered the point but with sightings from all around the world it has helped tracked ufo sightings. As they use in both sighting stories, technology is made just for these type of creatures. They are able to detect and identify if the object is normal or abnormal. From the coming of the past, technology from this current century has been a great deal of benefit to help out with UFO sightings.
There has been sightings and we the people may know that aliens have a high possible chance of being out in space, but has communication ever been exchanged with the creatures? Researchers and scientist have found something they called; The Drake Equation. ” It was followed shortly thereafter by a meeting at the Green Bank facility in 1961, where the subjects of SETI and searching for radio signals of extra-terrestrial origin were discussed. In preparation for this meeting, Drake prepared the equation that would come to bear his name.” The Drake equation was created by Frank Drake,it all was started when drake did a systematic SETI survey at a observatory in Virginia. The Drake equations purpose is to see the active communication of extraterrestrial life there is our galaxy. There is a great deal with this equation, it has huge benefit leads for us as humans to try and contact outer life. The alien life can even provide great outcome for future studies and even life changing history if we are able to use the tool correctly. Besides the great Drake equation, currently studies advance as scientist are trying to use lasers to try and contact aliens from our planet earth. ” The kinds of lasers and telescopes that are being built today can produce a detectable signal, so that an astronomer could take one look at our star and immediately see something unusual about its spectrum.”This future idea can be the next big thing to bringing the outer wonder closer to us. The many new explorations and unanswered questions can be revealed, we can have the actual alien creatures studied and investigated for health reasons we may never know about. The key to the future can start with the simple outcome of lasers and the Drake equation.
Alien life is a big step for the future studies and ourselves, with research and current studies being done. Extraterrestrials May just be the biggest wonder of the universe and how they operate. The impression of the alien is different to many people all over the world. Some people may believe and others are for and all of the new discoveries being made. Each discovery is a step closer to a new life of beyond what we have now. How will we handle this information as we unravel the extraterrestrial life that lives just beyond a galaxy near ours.
