Okay here's a question to everybody who knows something about radiotelescopes and glasfiber technology.
In these days more and more telephone and data communication relies on glasfiber technology. Because glasfiber technology uses light the signal
I was thinking, if light travels so much faster than sound, why in the world are people using radiotelescopes to seek for intelligent forms of life?
Usually when radiotelescopes are being used to seek alien life, people are doing that because they think alien life forms will base their
communications on radio waves.
Personally I think it would be smarter to use light (combined with beacons to curve the light) to transfer datastreams. How do you guys feel about
that? And do you feel we should be looking for light instaed of radio?
