Space experts who are a part of the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) have announced their partnership with researchers working on a NASA telescope. This join team will hunt for aliens from different galaxies.

However, alien-hunting is still a mystery for everyone. To know more about the matter AFP spoke to scientist Jill Tarter who spends her life researching about the signal emerging from the different galaxies.

"We've spent a lot of time over the years trying to distance ourselves from pseudoscience and UFOs," AFP quoted said Tarter, the Chair Emeritus for SETI Research at the SETI Institute in California.

"We've done the scientific exploration that we're engaged in a way that scientists in other disciplines do their work, and we published the papers and we've gone through the peer reviews, and we built interesting instrumentation," she added.

The collaboration was declared on Wednesday at the International Aeronautical Congress. According to the report, scanning skies helped humans to discover more into the galaxy. Back in 1995, the first exoplanet or planet outside our star framework was discovered, the finding was also awarded with Nobel prize, and close to 4,000 exoplanets have been affirmed after that.

Scanning and researching sky skies has also discovered the extremophiles, which are organism capable of surviving in any circumstances like extreme heat and pressure. According to Tarter, "If you know that there's this potentially habitable real estate out there, how can you not ask the question is any of it actually inhabited?"

The report suggests that the astronomers who are interested in SETI are using optical and radio telescopes to filter the sky to find out even the smallest sign of intelligent life forms. Meanwhile, we can't ignore the fact that they don't know precisely what they're searching for.

On this Tarter commented that "We don't know how to find intelligence. We don't even know how to define it very well."


Let's see how this collaboration is going to work and when are we going to get the more news and evidence on extraterrestrial life.
