Professor, Elon MuskHe claims that his plans to cover the Earth with satellites could ‘help attract aliens’.
Astrophysics professor Zaza Osmanov said the SpaceX chief’s proposal to put 40,000 satellites in orbit to cover the planet with internet coverage could be ‘seen from the cosmos’.
Elon Musk said that if 40,000 satellites are placed in orbit, they can be seen from the cosmos.
One scientist claimed that Elon Musk’s plans to surround Earth with satellites could attract aliens from the universe.
The SpaceX chief wants to orbit 40,000 satellites to cover the planet with internet coverage.
Astronomers fear that the Starlink mega structure will obscure the night sky, and believe their electrical signature could be detected by distant ETs.
A NEW LIVABLE WORLD
Zaza Osmanov, professor of astrophysics at the Free University of Tbilisi in Georgia, wrote in an article: “Last year SpaceX launched it with the first 60 Starlink satellites, and so far the total number is aimed to reach about 400. The number of satellites is expected to reach at least 12,000 by the end of the program.
“Such a large number of satellites scattered over almost the entire surface of the Earth can in principle be considered the first prototype of a possible mega-structure around the Earth visible from the cosmos.
“Here, we anticipate the idea of SpaceX to launch Starlink satellites and work on the possibility of building planetary mega-structures with Type-I civilizations, and as a result, their techno-signatures.
“We consider possible observational features of a planetary mega-structure partially or completely occupying an Earth-like planet in the habitable zone.”
Prof Osmanov studied how Starlink’s electrical signature could emerge through signals in distant alien civilizations.
He said the activity was similar to those that Earth’s advanced interferometers were already able to detect from other planets.
EXPERIENCE IN SPACE!
SpaceX boss Elon Musk stated that the Dragon spacecraft’s latest design; He explained that it would be in a reusable form, capable of commuting to Earth orbit with up to seven passengers.
The image of the updated design, tweeted with the headline “A new look for the crew,” shows a futuristic glass bubble canopy attached to the spacecraft, providing a unique 360 ° viewing experience of the stars.
The new design uses the space where the spacecraft’s docking adapter would normally sit, not for the missions of the ISS, but for Inspiration4, a mission scheduled for September 15, which will take Shift4 Payments CEO Jared Isaacman and three other civilian astronauts into space.
Musk boasted that the new design would offer the most “in-space” experience any astronaut could have.
NASA spokesperson Josh Finch told The Verge the agency had no plans to fly the modified version of Crew Dragon.
“NASA will continue to provide insight into SpaceX’s systems through our normal work, including SpaceX sharing flight data from non-NASA missions.”
