first_imgWhile the truth might be out there, technological aliens don’t seem to be — at least not yet. New results from the most comprehensive Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) program ever undertaken — which surveyed 1,327 nearby stars for signals from intelligent beings — have turned up empty. “There’s certainly nothing out there glaringly obvious,” Danny Price, an astrophysicist at the University of California, Berkeley, and lead author of a paper about the results, which were published in The Astrophysical Journal, told Live Science. “There’s no amazingly advanced civilizations trying to contact us with incredibly powerful transmitters.” While the team didn’t find anything this time around, Price said that there could be many explanations for the lack of alien signals. Perhaps the search was conducted at the wrong frequencies, or those signals were hidden by radio interference from Earth. Any such undertaking is limited by the methods and discoveries that humans happen to have made in the course of our own history.

The search was conducted as part of the Breakthrough Listen initiative, a 10-year, $100-million endeavor funded by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner that aims to scan the skies for technosignatures: transmissions or other evidence created by technological creatures on other worlds. The initiative, which kicked off in 2015, relies on two of the world’s most powerful telescopes — the 328-foot-diameter (100 meters) Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia, and the 210-foot-diameter (64 m) Parkes Telescope in New South Wales, Australia — to try to eavesdrop on alien communications. In their latest data release, researchers analyzed 1 petabyte (or 1 million gigabytes) of data in both radio and optical wavelengths, looking at more than a thousand stars within 160 light-years of Earth. Several thousand interesting signals appeared during the search, though all turned out to originate from mundane sources, like human-made satellites. The entire gargantuan information catalog will be publicly available on Breakthrough’s Open Data Archive, making it the largest publication of SETI data in the history of the field. Jason Wright, an astrophysicist at Pennsylvania State University who was not involved in the work, told Live Science he was impressed with the researchers’ commitment to public release of their data. “Anyone who thinks the team might have missed something can go over their results and see for themselves,” he said.  Wright has previously calculated that all SETI searches conducted to date amount to combing through the equivalent of a little more than a hot tub’s worth of water in all of our planet’s oceans. The latest addition increases that by 50% in radio wavelengths, he said, or roughly another bathtub’s worth. Price was optimistic that in the future his team will be able to put more stringent limits on the prevalence of life in the universe. The researchers intend to use the upcoming MeerKAT telescope in South Africa, an observatory that will consist of 64 separate 44-foot-diameter (13.5 m) arrays, to search more than a million stars in our galactic neighborhood for extraterrestrial transmissions. While any signal that appeared would have to be carefully scrutinized to ensure it was genuine, Price said such a finding would be truly revolutionary. “I think it would be one of the most important discoveries humankind would ever make,” he said. 11 Fascinating Facts About Our Milky Way Galaxy 10 Interesting Places in the Solar System We’d Like to Visit Originally published on Live Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 min and see why everyone is addicted!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoBeverly Hills MDTop Plastic Surgeon: “You Can Fill In Wrinkles At Home” (Here’s How)Beverly Hills MDUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndoKelley Blue Book2019 Lexus Vehicles Worth Buying for Their Resale ValueKelley Blue BookUndo 15 Amazing Images of Starslast_img read more

first_imgMUMBAI: Maharashtra housing minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil confirmed the building, which collapsed in the city’s Dongri area on Tuesday, was illegal. He said officials from both BMC and Mhada should be held responsible for letting it come up. Around 11.40am, Mumbai Fire Brigade received the first call about Kesarbai Mansion crashing. Initial reports indicated over a dozen people trapped in the debris. Eight fire engines, ambulances and rescue vans were sent to the site while NDRF was also mobilised. Local civic ward officials and police officers soon cordoned off the area. Narrow congested lanes hampered operations as rescuers found it difficult to navigate easily in the area. Chief Fire Officer PS Rahangdale said residents were unable to tell his men the exact numbers of those trapped. “Efforts were made to pull out as many people as possible alive. However, we needed to get into the debris very carefully.” Locals said they did see some chunks of the building falling before the crash. Firdoz Salmani, a 2nd floor resident who was injured in the collapse, said, “As pieces began to crumble, we realised something was wrong and began to run . But it had already begun to collapse, and we were trapped.” Many people cried helplessly when they could not find their loved ones. Mussarat Menon came from Mazgaon searching for her sister and nephew. She said, “My sister had just shifted to the building around a year ago. While her husband has been removed safely, she and her son cannot be traced.” Late on Tuesday evening, municipal commissioner Praveen Pardeshi visited the site and said his immediate priority was to rescue the trapped people. Safdar Karmali, trustee of Dharamsay Khakoo Charitable and Religious Trust which owned the building, said, “I became the trustee in 2002, the building was constructed prior to that. Those days, people used their influence to erect structures without permission. I and the trust are not responsible for it.” Download The Times of India News App for Latest India News.XStart your day smart with stories curated specially for youlast_img read more

first_img Press Trust of India BengaluruJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 19:17 IST Vice President Venkaiah Naidu said there should be no imposition of any language, nor should there be any opposition to any language. (File Photo)Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu Saturday suggested making the mother tongue the medium of instruction in schools, at least at the primary level.”Our languages must unite us in the cause for inclusive and sustainable development and must not end up as tools to divide us,” he said.Naidu said there should be no imposition of any language, nor should there be any opposition to any language.The Vice President said language preservation and development needs a multi-pronged approach and added that it was time to rethink and reinvent the entire language education in the country.Addressing the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL) at Mysuru, he said, “We must start by making the mother tongue the medium of instruction in our schools, at least at the primary level.”Pointing out that a number of global studies by expert groups had established that teaching the mother tongue at the initial stages of education gives an impetus to the growth of the mind and thought and makes children more creative and logical, Naidu said they must be taught multiple languages to widen their horizons.The Vice President also expressed happiness over the new draft National Education Policy, noting that it has given a number of suggestions to support education in home languages and mother tongues, tribal as well as sign languages.The policy rightly states that children have the potential to acquire multilingual skills and these need to be encouraged at the earliest, he said in his speech, a copy of which was released to the media here.Hoping that more people would start using their native languages at home, in the community, in meetings and in administration, Naidu said a sense of dignity and pride must be accorded to those who speak, write and communicate in these languages.”Language should become a catalyst for inclusive development,” he said, adding that language promotion should be an integral part of good governance.Stressing that many more bold decisions must be made to protect and nurture our languages, Naidu said, “Our languages must unite us in the cause for inclusive and sustainable development and must not end up as tools to divide us.There should be no imposition of any language, nor should there be any opposition to any language, he said.”Every language is important and worth our efforts in preserving and propagating it. Let us strive to communicate with each other and understand each other better,” he added.Noting that more than 19,500 languages or dialects are spoken in India as mother tongues, according to the Language Census, Naidu said there are 121 languages spoken by 10,000 or more people in India.”It is extremely disheartening to learn that 196 languages of our country are classified as endangered. We may have to ensure that this number doesnt increase,” he said, adding that the only way to protect and preserve the languages was to constantly use them.ALSO READ | Three language row: No imposition of any language, it’s just a draft policy, clarifies Union Education SecretaryALSO WATCH | Row erupts over new education policy draftFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for World Cup news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
