Scientists and adventurers are going to comb through the entire surface of the moon in search of aliens
In our time, when ufologists, astronomers and almost do not believe in the existence of alien life forms even on Mars and searching for signs of intelligent life beyond our solar system, there were adventurers, ready to find signs of alien stay on the moon, writes InoPressa referring to the newspaper The Gurdian .
To do this, Professor Paul Davies and Robert Wagner of the University of Arizona are not going to equip oneself for an expedition to the moon, in their view, it is enough just to analyze hundreds of thousands of photos of the planet's surface.
"Aliens could leave on the dusty lunar surface messages, scientific instruments, rubbish or evidence of mining, which can be seen by telescopes and orbiting satellites" — said the author Ian Semple.
Although the chances of finding evidence of ancient alien visits are negligible, the scientists argue that the study of computer images of the moon will be fairly inexpensive undertaking, given the importance of a potential discovery.
While researchers are studying the pictures on their own, focusing on images made by the American lunar probe Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which since mid-2009 has had time to take pictures in high resolution about a quarter of the surface of our natural satellite, said "Kompyulenta."
Scientists have found a landing spot "Apollo" as well as the American and Soviet unmanned stations. Some of them were found only for an unusual shade.
Total NASA made public about 340,000 images, the probe will cover the entire surface of the Moon, images will have more than a million. Analyze them manually by a small group of enthusiasts — employment prospects.
So the scientists asked to write specialized software for finding unusual items on the moon's surface. Since the moon is not fixed noticeable geological activity, traces of reasonable activity should persist for millions of years.
As for the impact of meteorites, the seismograph ship "Apollo 12" has shown that within a radius of 350 kilometers of a collision with a large asteroid (the size of a grapefruit) occurs only once a month. Thus, the scientists point out, the fact that the dust formed by such events could bury a man-made object to leave hundreds of millions of years.
