Astrophysicists came up with an unusual idea to detect sentient life-forms in the distant parts of the universe, with the possibility to become a major breakthrough.
Axar.az reports citing sputniknews.com.
Humanity has left significant amounts of junk floating in Earth's orbit since it began to explore space. However, astrophysicists from the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics have found something positive about it — it is an indication that a lifeform intelligent enough to at least launch satellites inhabits the planet.
This means that if we can see similar "space trash" orbiting some distant planet, it may be a pretty powerful clue that the planet is also inhabited with intelligent lifeforms, or at least has been at some point.
