When astronauts return to the Moon, they should keep their eyes peeled for extraterrestrial artefacts – pieces of technology from alien
civilisations that have wound up on the lunar surface either by chance or design.
So says Ian Crawford, a researcher from University of London’s Birkbeck College in the UK. He told a SETI specialist meeting of the Royal
Astronomical Society (RAS) in London last week that although he considers such a find a long-shot, it is definitely worth bearing in mind.
“This is not a primary reason to go back to the Moon – there are very strong scientific reasons for going back. But if we go back to the Moon in
the next 20 or 30 years, then amongst those things we might like to keep our eyes open for are alien artefacts,” Crawford told New Scientist.
The focus of the RAS discussion was the history and status of the search for extraterrestrial intelligence – an endeavour that has largely relied so
far on large radio telescopes listening for electromagnetic signals from other technological civilisations.
well maybe we will find something even if it is doubtfull
but if something is found it would be major news and
discovery if they aren't going to cover it up like all
things related to aliens .
