Search for Aliens in 86 Earth-like Planets Begins!

Considering how big the universe is, it's easy to speculate that we are not alone.

But Astronomers in West Virginia USA want to know for sure. So last week, using a massive radio telescope, they begun listening for signs of alien life in 86 Earth-like planets.

These planets were chosen from a list of more than 1,200 with surface temperatures between zero and 100 degrees Celsius; a range known to harbor life.

"It's not absolutely certain that all of these [planets are habitable], but they're very good places to look for ET," shares Andrew Siemion, a University of California at Berkeley graduate student.

"Our search employs the largest fully steerable radio telescope on the planet, and the most sensitive radio telescope in the world [...] We will be looking at a much wider range of frequencies and signal types than has ever been possible before," he follows up.

Well, here's to hoping they sniff out an intelligent signal. For all we know, Kokey could actually be out there.
