Other civilizations exist in our galaxy, it will be possible to discover in the next 20 years. This forecast was made by an employee of the California Institute SETI Seth Shostak.
According to estimates Shostak, in our galaxy, there are between 10 thousand to 1 million radio sources, some of which may have produced intelligent beings. To detect extraterrestrial intelligence should explore all sources of radio signals. Since in our part of the galaxy has about 100 billion stars, will test each of them. Astronomer suggests that the development of computers and telescopes will cope with this incredible complexity task. He estimated that computing power will double every year and a half until 2015, because it is such a progression was observed over the past decades.
