Subject: The New Search For Alien Civilizations

Hello List,

Aeon Magazine has a nice, if wordy, article on the search for
"Archeological ruins of alien civilizations"


About a third of the way in it describes how today's
accumulation of astro-data is permitting many folk to search for
Dyson spheres, for signs of techno-structures transitting parent
stars, for "Fermi bubbles" - patches of a galaxy that show
higher infrared emissions than the rest which could be a sign
that a civilisation is gradually transforming a galaxy as it
works its way across it, for signs of large-scale asteroid
mining, and to investigate `blue straggler stars' which could
mark a Kardashev Type II culture trying to preserve its habitat.

Interesting stuff, maybe more could be suggested?
