CSIRO Seeks Breakthrough in Search of Extraterrestrial Life

The real question is – are we intelligent life still searching for insights into who we are?  Are we really listening within? This requires a contrast to gain a sense of where we are in evolutionary terms. 

I smiled at the mainstream media and the question ‘are we alone?’  Any ABC journalist could do a search on Google and find the answer easily.  YouTube has considerable information on this subject from citizens, organisations,  govenrments and militaries disclosing.  It is no longer a question that requires answering, it has been answered. Yet we continue on as if we don’t know and are still searching.  Is that true?  

I note this initiative to install a listening receiver as part of a $100 million project.  I would suggest they only need go to Steven Greer the founder of the Disclosure Project at Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Life.  He has been invited to consult US Presidents, he appears credible and states direct contact through consciousness rather than technology. Refer http://www.disclosureproject.org/presskit/sgbio.shtml

The media still asserts we are searching.  My question is – why are they reporting in this way given the information below?  Moreover I just found this blog I published regarding the ABC and their investigation into UFO’s.  It seems the left hand is not aware of what the right hand is doing hmmm….

We need better questions and information from journalists with the courage to disclose what they know. I would say clearly scientists are monitoring extraterrestrials through technology. That in itself is an answer to the journalists question. 

Credible high level evidence on their existence is as follows:

I have understood from Dr. Greer’s information that they are predominantly monitoring us to observe if we can learn to work together for the benefit of humanity and the planet. The information suggests their presence here is not to take over but to inspire humanity to awaken their consciousness before humanity destroys itself and the earth.  

This is a critical topic and indeed it is in the interests of humanity to start an informed conversation.  It will change how we see ourselves and the potential we have to evolve our civilisation and to live in peace.

Here is the breakthrough article….

Parkes’ search for aliens receives a boost with new high-tech receiver at the Dish

Updated 22 Jun 2017, 11:29am

Australia’s role in the biggest-ever search for alien life is set to dramatically expand, with a new high-powered receiver to ramp up observations in the sky.

The Parkes CSIRO Telescope, known as The Dish, is the only facility in the southern hemisphere taking part in the Breakthrough Listen Initiative.

The $100 million program is the largest scientific research endeavour aimed at finding evidence of civilisations beyond Earth.

It is the stuff of films and space novels but The Dish, which was the star of the 2000 movie of the same name, has been playing a crucial role in the search for other intelligent life.

It has been using a single-pixel receiver to scan the skies since last October, but researchers involved with the Initiative from the United States have arrived to install new equipment to boost the search.

It will include a 13-pixel receiver, giving the Dish an unprecedented capacity to survey the galactic plane, which is where the majority of the Milky Way’s disk-shaped mass lies.

University of California Berkeley researcher Daniel Price said they wanted to take advantage of the latest technology to help solve one of life’s biggest mysteries.

“It’s at the end of the day quite a philosophical question, I mean we’re trying to answer one of the oldest questions that humanity has — are we alone in the universe?”

“It’s not an easy question to answer and we have to get as much data as we possibly can and as much evidence as we possibly can before we come to a conclusion.”

Dish will have unrivalled view of galactic plane

Dr Price said Parkes’ widening scope in the project would complement work being done at the Green Bank Telescope in the United States.

“And that is a very powerful telescope, but it doesn’t have access to the southern portion of the sky,” he said.

“Parkes is great, in that it’s in the southern hemisphere, and also this multi-pixel receiver means that we can do a very fast survey of the galactic plane and cover it in a reasonable amount of time.”

 

CSIRO Parkes system scientist Jimi Green said the installation was proceeding smoothly so far.

“This is just the kind of collaboration that we’re looking for in CSIRO, so it helps to build a sustainable model that we want to run for the telescope and it also brings in the exciting science that the team from UC Berkeley and Breakthrough are doing,” he said.

“At the same time we can run our own equipment, so this is something that we’ve just been exploring and we hope to run our equipment at the same time as their equipment.”

Technology upgrades to have other spin-offs

Dr Green said CSIRO would be able to use the new technology for other important work, such as discovering more fast radio bursts (FRBs).

The mysterious FRBs, which are an energetic radio pulse lasting only a few milliseconds and appear as flashes in the sky, have only been detected 24 times in the last 10 years.

 

The Parkes Dish discovered the first FRB in 2007, and the CSIRO said the facility had since been responsible for more than half of all detections globally.

Dr Green said the Dish was also at the forefront of the search for aliens.

“We can see a different part of the galaxy from the southern hemisphere than from the northern hemisphere,” he said.

“You can see more of the galactic centre, where there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on, and you can see right out to the outer galaxy.”

The new equipment is expected to be completely installed at the Parkes Dish over the next week.

Dr Price said they would continually upgrade the technology in line with new innovations in astronomy.

“Every two years or so, the computing capacity doubles and because of that, it means that the amount of sensitivity or the amount of bandwidth you can process also increases,” he said.

“We are looking at parameters of space that we’ve never looked at before, we are a lot faster, our surveys are a lot more sensitive, and we are covering large portions of the sky.”
