Alpha Centauri: The Best Place To Look For Aliens?

Profile Status

For generations, human beings have fantasized about the possibility of finding extra-terrestrial life, and with our ongoing research efforts to discover new and exciting extrasolar planets (aka. exoplanets) in distant star systems, the possibility of actually visiting one of these worlds has received a real shot in the arm.

Unfortunately, given the astronomical distances involved, not to mention the cost of mounting an expedition, doing so presents numerous significant challenges.

However, Russian billionaire Yuri Milner and the Breakthrough Foundation, an international organization committed to exploration and scientific research is determined to mount an interstellar mission to Alpha Centauri, our closest stellar neighbor, in the coming years.

With the backing of such big name sponsors as Mark Zuckerberg and Stephen Hawking, his latest initiative (named “Project Starshot“) aims to send a tiny spacecraft to the Alpha Centauri system to search for planets and signs of life.

Consisting of an ultra-light nanocraft and a lightsail, the concept calls for a ground-based laser array to push the lightsail up to speeds of hundreds of kilometers a second, towing the nanocraft into deep space.

Such a system would allow the tiny spacecraft to conduct a flyby mission to Alpha Centauri in about 20 years after it is launched, which could then beam home images of possible planets, as well as other scientific data such as analysis of magnetic fields.

    Well, it seems like a silly question, since the cabal already knows where they come from.

    As you all know, they keep visiting and watching us all the time…
    One of the biggest cover-up and deceiving of our era.

    19) И я увидел зверя [666] и царей земных и воинства их, собранные, чтобы сразиться с Сидящим на коне и с воинством Его [Сын Человеческий].

    20) И схвачен был зверь и с ним лжепророк, производивший чудеса пред ним, которыми он обольстил принявших начертание зверя и поклоняющихся его изображению: Нло пришел и забрал оба живые брошены в озеро огненное, горящее серою; 21) а прочие убиты мечом Сидящего на коне, исходящим из уст Его, и все птицы напитались их трупами.

    19) And I saw the beast [666] and the kings of the earth and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse and against His army [Son of man].

    20) And the beast was taken and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived who received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image: a UFO came and took both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone; 21) and the rest were killed with the sword Sitting on a horse, from His mouth, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
