Stephen Hawking in hunt of Extra Terrestrial Life

Stepehn Hawking & Russian Tycoon Yuri Milner belives that there's life elsewhere in the galaxy, Yuri puts  $100 million of his own money in to the project "Breakthrough Listen", which would be a 10 years project.

The purpose of the project is to monitor and track any type of signals or messages in space that might points to Alien Life. Professor Hawking has personally endorsed the project in public.

There had been many astronomers in past speculating life in on our neighboring planets. The project Breakthrough Listen can be considered High Risk project. But as Hawking is directly involved in the project we can considerably tell that the results will be clear.

In addition to Breakthrough Listen, Milner also plans to concurrently launch Breakthrough Message, a similar project that aims to communicate with extraterrestrial life.


“If a civilization based around one of the 1,000 nearest stars is transmitting to us with the power of a common aircraft radar, the Breakthrough Listen telescopes can detect it,” said Breakthrough Listen in a statement. “If they are transmitting from the center of the Milky Way, with any more than a dozen times the output of the interplanetary radars we use to probe our own Solar System, Breakthrough Listen telescopes could detect them.”
