Civilization ScienceDaily (Nov. 3, 2011) =E2=80=94 In the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, astronomers have hunted for radio signals and ultra-short laser pulses. In a new paper, Avi Loeb (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) and Edwin Turner (Princeton University) suggest a new technique for finding aliens: look for their city lights. "Looking for alien cities would be a long shot, but wouldn't require extra resources. And if we succeed, it would change our perception of our place in the universe," said Loeb..... ----- It's reasonable that creatures on other planets need city lights only because _we_ need city lights. It seems to me that one takes in a lot of assumptions if one insists that the ETs we are searching for have come to similar urban nocturnal illuminations as we have. ---Rob Terry W.
