Searching for Interstellar Archaeology signatures with Dyson Spheres on the stellar and galactic scale
Abstract: Interstellar archaeology, searching for cosmic-scale signatures of intelligence, is a different way to look for intelligence beyond our solar system. Unlike most radio SETI approaches, interstellar archaeology does not require intent to communicate on the part of the sender. Interstellar archaeology signatures include non-natural planetary atmospheric constituents, stellar doping, and signatures of astro-engineering.
When & Where
The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.
We believe we are conducting the most profound search in human history — to know our beginnings and our place among the stars.
The SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to scientific research, education and public outreach.
Every week the SETI Institute hosts a lecture series that is open to the public, provides free PB&J's and gives people a unique opportunity to interact with some of the world's leading space scientists.
