Astrophysicist Lucianne Walkowicz believes that there could be something obvious we are missing.Conventionally the search for intelligent alien civilizations has involved listening out for signals, but what if a sufficiently advanced alien race had found a way to use the flicker patterns of their own star to communicate a message ? This is the premise on which Walkowicz is basing new research designed to determine if there could be messages in theheavens that we"ve been missing all along.Walkowicz and her team will be examining the archives from the Kepler mission to look for "winking" stars and then use complex software algorithms to identify any unusual patterns.

"We’ll get all sorts of things we understand," she said. "But we’ll also be looking for things that aren’t matched by well-known physical processes." The odds of a discovery with Walkowicz’s project may be long, but the search technique is quite straightforward. “Ourpremise,” she says, “is that up until now, we’ve had a preconceived idea of what a SETI signal would look like. ”

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence has received a sizeable donation to upgrade its antennas.It wasn"t long ago that SETI"s days appeared to be numbered due to a lack of funding, but now thanks to an increase in donations and support things seem to be going a lot better. The $3.5 million donation was given by chief Franklin Antonio of San Diego-based Qualcomm and will be used to help double thesensitivity of the antenna feed from the 350 strong Allen Telescope Array.

SETI is also looking to go one step further and solicit a further $1M in a new fund raising campaign."Donations will help support our scientists to make a difference in the world," said SETI co-founder Jill Tarter. "People who value creativity, education and technology support SETI Institute’s mission." A co-founder and chief scientist of San Diego-based Qualcomm donated $3. 5million to improve the search for life on other planets, the SETI Institute announced Wednesday.

Colonel G.E. Laidlaw recorded an intriguing tale told by the First Nations people of central Ontario.500 years ago two natives from an Ojibwa village in the region were said to have come across a strange man sitting alone in a field who they described as "clean and shining bright". When asked what he was doing the stranger responded by claiming that he had "dropped down from above" and that he didn"t belong there. The Ojibwa invited the man back to their village and there he stayed for a short time, however heappeared mostly restless and would regularly watch the skies on the basis that he expected something to come and take him back.

One afternoon something did indeed arrive, a bright star-like object which descended from above and landed nearby. The story ended with the "Skyman" entering the object and ascending in to the heavens.Could it be that the Ojibwa were visited by someone from another world or was it just a myth ? The truth behind the story may never be known. 500 years ago there was a large Ojibwa village about 550 native people living somewhere inour region. One day, a pair of them stumbled upon a stranger sitting on the grass in a field. This figure, a male, was notably “clean and shining bright. ”

Astronomers have identified an extrasolar planet that is a top contender in the hunt for alien life.Known as a "super-Earth", the planet Gliese 163c is about 50 light years away and lies just on the edge of its star"s habitable zone. It isn"t clear if the planet is a rocky world or a small gas giant but at seven times the mass of Earth it is considerably larger than our own terrestrial sphere. There is asmall chance that the planet will pass in front of its star from our perspective which would offer scientists the chance to learn more about it."There are a wide range of structures and compositions that allow Gliese 163c to be a habitable planet," said astronomer Xavier Bonfils whose team made the discovery.

The Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL) at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo keeps a catalog of the alien worlds it considers goodcandidates to host life. The newly discovered Gliese 163c ranks fifth on the list.
