(The US Sun)   Scientist says we are looking for alien life way too far out in space and should be focusing close by on the Moon, where aliens have probably stashed spacecraft for the takeover of Earth   (the-sun.com) divider line

FTFA: The physicist also argued that the alien civilisation may be dead but their artefacts may still be able to communicate with us.

Dude, I'm a pretty big Star Trek fan myself, but perhaps it's time to put down the remote control and focus on something else.

The octopuses cackle as the stupid land dwellers look for dangerous alien intelligences in space.

Artifacts *on* the moon? Haha. No. The moon itself is an artifact. Or so I'm told.

I have heard stories about aliens on the Moon telling the astronauts in 1969 to leave, so....

Yep. When its time for Real Science info, I always turn to the 'Sun'!

I have that on my shelf. Good read. The author was a bit out there (met him a few times in the 90's and 00's), but he spun a good tale even if his basic premise was scientifically flawed.

the moon is fake, and it was put there to spy on us.

I'd actually like to know how you'd go about looking for an alien probe.  Assuming aliens are limited by the same physics we are, and have roughly only the technology we have or have solidly worked out the theory for but haven't quite implemented yet, because you have to keep the bounds reasonable.

Something that would be beaming back data to its point of origin.  Something big enough to have instruments on it to get nice details of all the planets.  Something tough enough to survive a century or so in transit and still be operational.  Something able to inject itself into solar orbit.

How big would that be?  How reflective might it be?  How hot?  Where's the best location for a single probe to gather the most data, assuming you're talking about data that would require relative proximity and couldn't just be picked up by a giant telescope array in its home system?

While we're looking for dangerous NEOs, it wouldn't hurt to take a pass through the data for alien observation probes.

While I'm delighted this rabbit hole exists, I am waaaaaaaaaaaay too tired to spend any time there.

So far.

Well c'mon, we already know what is waiting for us on Mars' Syria Planum and on Ganymede.

After the last few years, I'd betray humanity to my new alien overlords in a heartbeat.

I know from photographic evidence that Mr. Goatse doesn't have one. Now you just need to check everyone else.

Once we find out how to read the Great Wall, we can try to find out of there's anything else written down.

The moon base was abandoned ages ago, but poor Captain Fwiffo is still hanging out on Pluto.

Hey I once recorded dance music for Pluto, but in the future.
