Our stargazers are in a constant hunt of signals for extraterrestrial life in the cosmos. A recent investigation presents facts that there may be aliens on at least nine planets outside the limits of our Solar System, monitoring and scrutinizing human beings at this very moment.
Experts don’t say that they genuinely detected an extraterrestrial civilization, but they affirm that our planet and its citizens might be overseen by aliens who obtain the exact technology they need.
There are diagnosed and identified parts of the inaccessible sky from where distinct planets in our Solar System could be seen to elapse ahead of the Sun. These parts are called “transit zones” and were discovered by astronomers from Queen’s University Belfast and the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Germany. These astronomers have information that indicates extraterrestrials have an excelling chance to observe rocky planets, including Planet Earth, than the gas and ice giants, like Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Saturn.
There is a journal called Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, where astronomers write that nine or more extern planets are located flawlessly to observe transits of Earth.
The lead writer, Robert Wells, a Ph.D. student at Queen’s University Belfast says:”Larger planets would naturally block out more light as they pass in front of their star”. Nevertheless, more relevant aspect is actually how near the planet is to its parent star. The fact that the terrestrial planets are closer to the Sun than the gas planets, they are better expected to be seen in transit.
The astronomers searched for segments of the sky and found out that three planets at most could be viewed from anyplace outside the Solar System.
One of the co-writers of this study, Katja Poppenhhaeger, says it is estimated that a randomly positioned observer would have about a 1 in 40 chance of observing at least one planet. The expectation of encountering at least two planets would be roughly ten times lower, and to encounter three would be an another ten times smaller than the other one.
There are thousands of known exoplanets but the team discovered and identified 68 worlds where observers might see one or more of the planets of the Solar System transit the Sun. Only nine of them, actually, are perfectly fixed to monitor transits of Earth. Anyway, none of these nine worlds seem to be livable.
The team also appraises that there should be around ten worlds that are not discovered at this moment but are conveniently located to detect the Earth and have the capability to preserve a life.
