Technosignatures: state-of-the-art and future prospects
As new extrasolar worlds are routinely being discovered, there is mounting evidence that the conditions necessary for life to begin on Earth are ubiquitous in the Galaxy. Recent findings include the existence of temperate rocky exoplanets and water in exoplanetary atmospheres. This leads to consider the question as to whether life has arisen elsewhere and, if so, has it ever evolved intelligence and technology, the signs of which could be remotely detected from Earth?
