Is there really life out there in space? This scientist thinks it existed closer than we think. As in, right here, in our own solar system. Extraterrestrials may have harbored and lived on a planet within our vicinity, even our own planet Earth.
How does one look for remnants of technology? Technosignatures.
Instead of looking for life, Wright is looking for technology that is “designed by life.”
He gives examples like radio towers, or The Empire State Building.
While Wright doesn’t think he will be finding any of our green martian friends anytime soon, he does aspire to uncover fossils of advancements made before the evolution of the human race. His solution? Keep searching.
